Honey County is staying ahead of the game, releasing the new EP Chess everywhere today (11/18). The project features four acoustic songs as well as a full band version of the title track, "Chess," which appeared on Season 4 of Yellowstone.

Chess features a series of stripped-down songs — "Under Your Influence," "Love Someone," "Cigarette" and "Chess." Each track showcases Honey County's soaring melodies and unique sound, a blend of contemporary Country and timeless Pop/Rock. Every song on Chess has been featured on Paramount Network's hit TV show Yellowstone across Seasons 2, 3 and 4.

In addition to the acoustic tracks, the EP includes a bonus reimagined full band version of the title number, infusing the song with even more grit and power. The rowdy Country Rock moment was featured in Season 4 of Yellowstone in a major scene with Kevin Costner's John Dutton. "Chess" is about a girl who isn't looking for a fight, but when she's challenged in a bar, she's forced into it, a reflection of the experience John Dutton has in a diner on Yellowstone.

Dani Rose, lead singer of Honey County, shared, "I'm really excited for people to hear the songs stripped down and in their purest form." She further expressed, "I've been so lucky to be a part of the Yellowstone family and am grateful to Taylor Sheridan, Andrea Von Foerster and Sabrina Del Piore at Paramount for their love and support!"

The songs are anthemic, the melodies are soaring, and an empowered woman runs the show. Based in Nashville, TN, Honey County also has roots in Virginia, a diversity reflected in Honey County's music, a blend of contemporary Country and timeless Pop/Rock that makes room for Nashville twang and everything in between. Honey County’s music has been featured in NFL commercials, HBO's True Blood, CMT’s Nashville, The CW's Roswell, Fox's Monarch and four episodes of the hit TV show Yellowstone. Earlier this year, Honey County released "Strawberry Margarita Promises" and "Got It From My Mama," the latter of which shines a light on deep-rooted pride and love for all mothers. The touching track picked up major steam on TikTok, hitting number 2 on the US TikTok Charts and boasting over 1.2 billion views on the social media platform with over 715,000 videos created using the song. Honey County has shared the stage with artists like Tim McGraw, Old Dominion, Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, Cole Swindell and Jake Owen. Fueled by an appreciation for the Country artists who have come before and an appetite for breaking new ground, Honey County is excited to release new music.
