MAKE WAY FOR WOODS' WAYS
4/5/18

Warner/Chappell Nashville’s Donovan Woods is bringing a fresh take to alternative folk/country, one that’s making political waves. Lead single “Burn That Bridge”—off his anticipated album Both Ways—is the LGBTQ representation mainstream music has been lacking.

The music video has garnered just under 48k views since its release, and the song's almost at 265k streams on Spotify.

Woods’ boldly open-minded message has received some backlash from alt-right “news” outlets who suggest Woods find a “new line of work." However, Woods’ line of work has been deeply rooted in Country music for some time, despite his move from Nashville to Toronto. The singer/songwriter has penned for Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, Tim McGraw and Charlie Worsham.

Woods is repped by Paquin Entertainment Group and his album is expected to drop on 4/20—a day we at HITS like to refer to as Christmas With Better Trees.
