Marking an exciting new chapter, emerging country/pop sensations On The Outside(OTO) release a brand new track today called “Act Like You Don’t”. The up-tempo song is the long-awaited offering to their 5 million TikTok followers. The single includes OTO’s signature sound with a new sonic twist. Utilizing some of the finest musicians in the world and recorded at Nashville’s famed Blackbird Studio D, OTO have included the undeniable influence of their new home, Nashville. Trading in their previously slick programmed sound, OTO have gravitated toward live instruments and a fresh, organic approach. The studio band reads like a who’s who of Nashville session aces including drummer Nir Z (John Mayer, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line), bassist Rob Cureton (Big and Rich, Yelawolf, Fisk Jubilee Singers), mandolin/acoustic guitarist Ilya Toshinskiy (Brett Young, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood), keyboardist Dave Cohen (Morgan Wallen, Walker Hayes, Lady A) and electric guitarist Kris Donegan (Shania Twain, Lee Brice, Maddie & Tae).
“Act Like You Don’t” also marks the return of co-producer, Jimmy Robbins (Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini). As a Grammy nominated, CMA & ACM winner with 14 top ten hits and 10 #1’s to his credit, Robbins and On The Outside co-founder Mike Shimshack (Britney Spears, Laura Bell Bundy) have helped shaped the band’s newest release into a modern pop/country classic.
“Sometimes the hardest part of breaking up is when the other person gives you no reason to dislike them” says OTO member and Act Like You Don’t co-writer, Jon Klaasen. “Don’t tell me you miss me too even if you do… act like you don’t”.
