Asbury Park, NJ’s first ever country duo continues to build the WHArmy nationally as Gordon Brown and Reagan Richards gear up for a busy summer ahead. No Umbrella, the next single from the duo’s self-titled debut album, has officially been released to country radio today (Tuesday, April 18) and fans can download it on all digital platforms.
Once again, Williams Honor is showing the world that Asbury Park isn’t too far from Nashville. “We’re really excited about the release of this song,” says Richards. “It was a song that seemed to resonate with our fans since day one. We wrote this in Nashville right on Music Row with (Billboard hot country artist) Cyndi Thomson and we knew right away that we stumbled on something special.”
This talented duo is gearing up for exclusive private events in New Jersey for the next few months to promote No Umbrella and will be doing a media tour in Nashville the week of the release with appearances all over town. They just wrapped up their very first music video for their previous release, Send It To Me (#55 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart). This video showcases their favorite places, streets and venues on the Jersey Shore and Nashville. Shot during last year’s CMA Music Festival by Nashville’s Over The Cumberland production team, the scenes filmed along downtown Broadway showcases prominent venues like The Ryman Auditorium, Tootsie’s, and Bridgestone Arena. While in Asbury Park, the duo shot with Cinecall filmaker George McMorrow along Cookman Ave and at classic Jersey Shore venues like The Saint, McLoones on the Asbury Boardwalk, The Wonderbar, and The Stone Pony. The official video will be released next month and sneak peaks were already shown on the NJNews12 broadcast which was aired April 15th and 16th.
ABOUT WILLIAMS HONOR: Straight from Asbury Park, NJ’s legendary music scene, comes an unstoppable collision of likeminded influence, chemistry and a true love for country music. The duo consists of powerhouse singer and performer Reagan Richards and producer/multi-instrumentalist Gordon Brown. After spending years separately in Nashville and never running into each other, they both were writing, recording and touring for other projects and artists. The two met while doing a benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims in NJ and fueled by the memory of their fathers, who were both lost way too soon, Williams Honor was born the summer of 2014.
This duo wrapped up an extensive national radio tour last year, visiting close to 40 stations and performing shows in many of the cities they traveled to. They had their first live network feature interview and performance on NBC’s Today in Nashville and participated in Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar earlier this year doing endless media interviews, appearances and performances. Their debut album is available wherever digital music is sold, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, etc. and signed physical CD’s are available on their website.
