Signing his first major record label deal with Warner Music Nashville at 27 years old, Wyoming country artist Ian Munsick is putting his spin on western country. Releasing his debut album, Coyote Cry, earlier this year, Munsick already has close to ONE HUNDRED MILLION streams. Self-proclaiming to be in the western pop-country genre, Ian says that his record is influenced by people such as Ned LeDoux and Post Malone. Rebranding country music and taking it to a new level, Coyote Cry will give listeners something that they haven’t really heard before. Just as Texas has “Red Dirt Country”, Wyoming has its own flavor of country music. From the LeDoux family to Chancey Williams, Munsick is making a place for his name among the list of greats from the Cowboy State.
In 2017, Ian released a self-titled EP, winning iHeartRadio’s Rocky Mountain Song of the Year for “Horses Are Faster” and becoming the only artist who simultaneously qualified two tracks as finalists in the NSAI/CMT songwriting competition. In addition to his previous accolades, on October 23rd, Ian was able to experience something that most musicians can only dream of; performing at the Grand Ole Opry. What made this particular occasion even more amazing for Ian was that he was able to share the stage with his father who is a fiddle player. Learning the love of music and how to play from his dad, Ian was able to pay those lessons back and show his appreciation in an incredibly special way.
Performing at events such as NFR in 2019 to gracing the infamous stage at Grand Ole Opry, Munsick is currently touring with fan favorites, Cody Johnson and Easton Corbin. Ian says, “being on tour with these guys is awesome. I’m on tour (with Cody) through the spring and releasing my first major record while on the road has been incredible. Cody’s fans are hardcore and they’re at the venues right when the doors open, so we always play for a full crowd. We’re excited to continue this for another few months!”
You can find Ian Munsick headlining the Hooey Party presented by Pendleton Whiskey, on December 3rd at the NFR over at Brooklyn Bowl. Ian will also be performing at NFR alongside Cody Johnson on December 9th at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
