Nashville-based indie country/Americana group Maybe April are set to release of their debut album, The Other Side, on August 9, 2019. With a sound that calls to mind great country voices of the 90s and early 2000s — when “country radio” was synonymous with Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Shania Twain, and the Dixie Chicks and “Bro-country” had yet to surface — the 10-track set was inspired by the moments that make life both hard and beautiful. Threading throughout the album are the experiences that mold a woman into whom she is meant to become and the courage it takes to emerge on the other side, always a little bit stronger and a little bit smarter. Ahead of the album's release, Wide Open Country recently premiered a fun, tongue-in-cheek video for their "breezy" new single, "Truth Is," a song about using light-hearted denial to get over heartbreak.

Additionally, Rolling Stone Country featured the intimate and affecting lead single “Need You Now” saying, "No, this isn’t a Lady Antebellum cover. Instead, Maybe April’s 'Need You Now' is a bright, summery salute to new love, laced with light touches of banjo and syncopated percussion. Bandmates Katy DuBois and Alaina Stacey share lead duties throughout, harmonizing their way through a song whose emphasis on togetherness could easily double as a message of sisterhood." The song previously premiered via Billboard along with the title track, which serves as a love letter to life on the road, on the stage, and in the recording studio.

A dynamic pair of impressive songwriters and vocalists who share roles as frontwomen, Katy DuBois (Bishop) and Alaina Stacey first met at a music industry camp in Nashville in 2012 where they formed Maybe April. The group penned a song together that would take them to Los Angeles for a GRAMMY week songwriting showcase, sharing the stage with Jimmy Webb, Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, Joy Williams (Civil Wars), John Reznik (Goo Goo Dolls), Gavin DeGraw, and Valerie Simpson. They have since opened for both Brandy Clark and Sarah Jarosz and began garnering critical attention when CMT named them one of 2018's "Rising Acts," calling their harmonies "as alluring as their lyrics." Maybe April teased the forthcoming release of The Other Side last summer with a music video for album track "You Were My Young" that was featured by Paste Magazine, Wide Open Country, and The Boot.
