Cheat Codes Announces Country Music Album "One Night in Nashville", Shares New Song “I Remember” with Russell Dickerson
Los Angeles-based DJ trio Cheat Codes, consisting of Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl and Matthew Russell, will release their upcoming fourth studio album "One Night in Nashville" on January 27, 2023.
The album is their first country music album. Cheat Codes said, “We've always wanted to be able to experiment, push the envelope, and blur the lines between different types of music.”
On August 26th, the trio released the first single called “I Remember” from the new album.
This time, they teamed up with American country pop singer-songwriter Russell Dickerson on the track.
Cheat Codes said of the song, “Working with Russell Dickerson was like that first sip of an ice cold beer as the suns going down. Jesse Frasure and Russell set the stage perfectly, the second they sent over the chorus we fell in love and knew exactly what we needed to bring this to life.”
Russell Dickerson said, “Jesse Frasure sent me this song and as soon as I heard the chorus I was in. I got together with the writers to finish it and it came together perfectly. Then enter Cheat Codes and these dudes took it to the moon.”
- When Cheat Codes making the third studio album “HELLRAISER PT, 3”, one track in particular needed vocals and the band sent the song off to Little Big Town. When the track was returned and the vocals were rich with a soulful sound the groundwork for the country album was set.
They said, “We had set out to make a dance song and the vocals were so right it just made sense. We didn't know if anyone would want to do this with electronic artists but we found that they were just as keen to work with us as we were to work with them and that comfort set the tone for the type of album we wanted to make and who we wanted to work with moving forward.”
Then, the trio went to Nashville. “Going to the coolest city ever after us making one song turned into us wanting to make an entire album. We knew it was a different world musically from the one we lived in but we knew we wanted to be a part of it.”
The album features Little Big Town, Bryn Christopher, Lee Brice, Lindsay Ell, Jimmie Allen, Lady A, Matt Stell, Russell Dickerson, Maddie & Tae, Mitchell Tenpenny, Brett Young, Mackenzie Porter and Dolly Parton.
They continued, “We felt so comforted and welcomed by them and their audience our collaboration was just so natural. We were invited to play with them at the 2022 Stagecoach Festival and being embraced by not only them but their fans was such a special feeling we knew we had to do more.”
