If there ever was a time to release a song about the so-called “American Dream,” May 15th might be it. American Dream is best described as an old school 90’s country song that mixes John Cougar Mellencamp with some current perspective. Written by songwriters Jason Hamor, and Braeden Counts – Bernard worked with legendary producer Bill McDermott (Kylie Trout, Joey Feek, Nascar) at Omni Sounds Studio in Nashville to record what will be his first radio single.
“As Americans, we have all been inspired by the idea of making our dreams come true. It is possible in America. I grew up with a dream to serve my country and play music and hope to bring joy to others while being lucky enough to play music. In our country, we share so many of the same challenges, especially in current times, and all have our own version of the American Dream. I am inspired every day by those who go after their dreams. All dreams have challenges, and what’s really important is to enjoy the journey,” Bernard said.
Houston Bernard brings an upbeat relatable song to life with his powerhouse vocals and a touch of 90’s country twang. American Dream transcends age, economic barriers and resonates with a large audience. He’s gained early support from not only a new group of country listeners but his extensive fanbase.
Houston Bernard not only displays his potential as a trendsetter in country music but shows he is worthy of it is his newest track.
