“It’s the start of a brand-new year, a chance for you to start fresh, refocus and see what is really important in this life,” shares MARKS. “This new song is all about good times, re-connecting with family and friends. Committing to yourself to make things better in the year ahead and not taking those special things for granted. It’s a country song for country people, so cheers. Here’s to you, here’s to me and a different kind of year!” 

MARKS’ 2020 groundbreaking debut album, Who I Am, landed at #1 on several Canadian charts including iTunes’ “Country Songs” and the Canadian Nielsen “Digital Sales Rock Genre” charts. The album featured the hit rock singleOutlaws & Outsiders,” which charted at #1 in the U.S. on Billboard’s “Rock Digital Song Sales” chart and #5 on iTunes “Country Songs. “Outlaws & Outsiders” made history in the U.S. by being the first-ever Top 10 rock radio charting single from a Canadian country act. The single has received over 144 million streams to date while achieving  Platinum certification in Canada (MARKS’ home country) and Gold certification in the U.S.  MARKS has since released three additional EPs and most recently collaborated with labelmates Eva Under Fire on the Top 20U.S. rock radio-charting single “Unstoppable” in the fall of 2023.
