25th May, 2023 is the release date for Change My Mind, the New Single from Country Artist, Ags Connolly. It is also the 3rd track to be taken from Ags’ upcoming 4th Album, Siempre.

In the last few years I’ve become interested in traditional Tex-Music and tried to learn more about it. Acts like the Texas Tornados adapted it to country with fun, seemingly simple sing-alongs, and ‘Change My Mind’ was my attempt to do something similar. I learned to play bajo quinto in order to bring as authentic a sound as possible to the song. Michael Guerra is the star on accordion however: this music just isn’t viable without that killer squeezebox.”

Siempre is the fourth studio album from Ags Connolly and marks a change in direction for the traditional country singer-songwriter – yet without leaving his trademark honky tonk sound behind. As with his previous record Wrong Again (2019) – named UK Country Album Of The Year at the 2020 UK Country Music Awards – Siempre was produced by Ags himself and recorded at Woodworm Studios in Oxfordshire with London-based players in guitarist Rob Updegraff, bass player Anna Robinson and drummer Chris ‘CJ’ Jones. Crucial contributions also came from San Antonio-based accordionist Michael Guerra (playing on his third Ags record) and Nashville fiddle player Billy Contreras. In addition, legendary UK pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole added dobro to one track.
