The forthcoming release from the Connor Christian fronted act was written by Russell Sutton, Kyle Coulahan, and Troy Thomas Walls with the trio creating a fantastic toe-tapping country crossover jam that will have you reaching for the repeat button. There is also a truly brilliant guitar solo from Quinn to listen out for too. 
Following several stints in previous bands, frontman and principal songwriter Connor Christian founded The Southern Gothic with former Truckadelic drummer Shawn Thacker. What first started as a high energy, house cover band at venerated Atlanta dive bar, Dixie Tavern, has grown immensely along with Connor’s writing skills to become the band Billboard Magazine called its ‘Band on the Verge’  And with ‘Rich Folk’ they continue on their rise to the top with a standout country Americana smash that is best played at full blast with the windows down. Lyrically engaging and musically inspiring, this is a track that showcases the growth of The Southern Gothic.  Speaking about the single, Connor Christian says: “This is a song a bunch of my buddies wrote and I felt left out, so I had to sing it.  It was written by Russell Sutton (‘Whiskey On You” Nate Smith/”My Boy”Elvie Shane) with Troy Thomas Walls (who co-wrote several other tunes on the album with me including “Talking in My Sleep”) and Kyle Coulahan.  It’s just a super fun jam, Quinn’s guitar solo is INSANE, we brought in a few horn-playing buddies to add some finishing touches, and just really got to get a feel for how far we could stretch that song from the original vibe, which we loved, and still stay true to it. Throughout this tune, we meet a host of characters, the most important of which is the bar itself.  Anyone who’s spent any time in a low down dive bar, seedy-pub will recognize a lot of the people and scenes in this tune.  I love singing it, and can’t wait to play it for everyone!” Connect with The Southern Gothic:YouTube | Instagram | Facebook
