Outshyne, the five-piece country band making waves on Sirius XM’s prestigious hit-launching channel The Highway, has entered the Top Ten – at #8 – on The Highway’s “Hot 45 Countdown” with their current single “Moonlight Crush.”  The song is averaging 3,000 downloads a week at iTunes; in fact, Outshyne’s live interview/acoustic performance of the song on the channel’s “Mornings with Storme Warren” prompted 833 sales within 24 hours of the broadcast.
In a recent Wall Street Journal article, it was noted that, in country music, Sirius XM channel The Highway “wields disproportionate influence on sales of records and concert tickets…particularly for new and emerging artists from outside the major-label system,” and early Outshyne fan and supporter  - and the channel’s programmer - John Marks is pointed to as the genre’s “unlikely new power broker.”
" ‘Moonlight Crush’ is a song our Highway subscribers love,” said Marks about the single. “The band has a certain something that is very real to our listeners."
In the four years since they’ve been performing full-time as a band, Outshyne has achieved tremendous music sales, with close to 50,000 downloads so far in 2014 – and over 900,000 streams (with 350,000 just this year)credited to the band.
Sony RED, the premier, award-winning independent distribution and marketing company widely recognized as the domestic and international industry leader in music distribution and artist development, has partnered with Outshyne to assist in distribution of the band’s Startin’ Over album, which contains “Moonlight Crush.”
“I have been a huge fan since the first time I heard them back in October 2013,” said Dewayne Brown, Southeastern Director of Artist & Label Development at RED Nashville. “The song ‘Moonlight Crush’ is written by some of the most unbelievable songwriters here in Nashville, and Waylon’s vocal blew me away. But it’s not just Waylon, I love what the boys - Josh, Casey, Jason and Smiley - bring to the party.”
“Moonlight Crush” was co-written by Marv Green, Blake Wise and BMI songwriter of the year Rodney Clawson, whose 13 #1 singles have included massive hits for Florida Georgia Line (“Get Your Shine On,” “Round Here”), Luke Bryan (“Crash My Party,” “Drunk on You”) and Jason Aldean (“Amarillo Sky,” “Take A Little Ride”).
Outshyne, who hail from South Carolina, consists of Waylon Owings (lead singer, guitar), Josh Coleman (lead guitar, vocals), Casey Joe Kelly (rhythm guitar, vocals), Jason Paxton (bass) and Matthew “Smiley” Norris (drums). The band is managed by Florence, SC’s Millstar Entertainment Group.
