New country artist Mark Taylor is kicking off the new year with a release all the 90s country fans will love. His new single, Brooks & Done, which pays tribute to many Brooks & Dunn song titles, is available on all digital streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, and more.
Mark grew up listening to 90’s country and his favorite childhood duo was Brooks & Dunn. When he sat down with fellow artist Dan Harrison and hit songwriter Steve O’Brien who co-wrote Rock My World (Little Country Girl) for Brooks & Dunn alongside other hits for John Michael Montgomery, Don Williams, and more, they started talking about how 90s country was one of the best decades for the genre. Those artists, including Brooks & Dunn, paved the way for some of the biggest stars today. “Dan brought this clever hook to us and before we knew it, we were name dropping many song titles from this iconic duo in our song,” says Mark. I am so proud of this song. We wrote it over a year ago and decided to wait until the right time to release it. Every time I play this song out, the response is overwhelming. I’m so excited to officially release it for everyone to hear. Take a listen and let me know how many Brooks & Dunn songs you hear.”
Virginia born, Maryland raised and now Nashville based country artist, Mark Taylor, is taking the music industry by storm with his 90’s country infused sound and soulful melodies. Having already opened for country stars Big & Rich, Bryan White, Joe Nichols, Jon Pardi, and Russell Dickerson to name a few, and played some of the biggest country music festivals to date, Mark and his band toured around the U.S. and completed multiple tours so far, becoming the new one to watch in country music.

Recently partnering with CALI Distillery, Mark Taylor launched his own honey bourbon whiskey – Steel String Signature. He took a hands-on approach with every aspect of this, from taste to name choice to design and packaging. “With the name of this whiskey that was inspired by the steel strings I had in my hand for as long as I can remember, I hope that you sit back and remember your favorite song as you sip a glass of my handcrafted Steel String Signature Whiskey.” Partnered with CALI Distillery, this limited edition spirit is currently available online through their retail partner, Great American Craft Spirits.
