Pittsburgh-based country artist Gary Burk III’s debut single with MTS Records, “Friday Night” stormed into the iTunes Country Songs chart Top 20 (Canada) with its infectious groove and “good time” lyrics. The track received more than 50,000 Spotify streams, while the lyric video has surpassed 18,000 Youtube views. While the single climbed airplay charts, Burk released a brand new track, “You Got Me.”
The accent and the slight twang is what gives Gary Burk the country artist label. However, it seems that Burk is always toying with something else. The music for this song is more 80s pop with jazzy undertones (almost AOR) until the guitar cements the song as a country piece.
