Dallas, Texas -- Adrian Johnston is pleased to announce today's release of the lyric video for "Rather Have You." Penned by Johnston and Zac Maloy, who also served as producer, the lyric video features various footage from Johnston's live performances and studio sessions. Created by Two Beards & A Camera Productions (Nashville), the lyric video is available now at Johnston's YouTube channel and on Facebook




"Rather Have You" is currently #51 on the Texas Regional Radio Report and is being promoted by Dorothea Ivey of Cabin Creek Promotions

A take on the "wanting what you shouldn't have" dilemmas in life, "Rather Have You" is full of attitude and sass. Johnston's spirited vocals are on fire through the many lyrical twists and turns and the true country fiddle and driving backbeat provide the heart of this upbeat tune. A song where grit and twang are in perfect harmony, Johnston's inspiration came from the line, "I'd rather have wine than dinner."

"I played one of the silly voice memos I had on my phone for Zac of me horribly singing 'I'd rather have wine than dinner'," said Johnston. "We played with the idea of wanting what you're not supposed to have and ended up with some complimentary lines like 'a little truth but a little more dare' and 'rather ride a roller coaster than sit on a merry go round' and ran with that edgy-side."

Radio has weighed in positively on the single.
"Adrian's got a strong, smooth voice and she knows how to deliver!  On top of that, she's a TCU Alum!  We're proud of her and love the new single."
Russell Scott | KTCU | Fort Worth, TX

"Adrian Johnston's new single "Rather Have You" is Top Shelf! Everyone should hear this song! The most important thing is the true country sound, it's truly a great song!"
Ryan Burden | KMOU | Roswell, NM

"Adrian Johnston's newest single is an energetic, sexy, upbeat song that says exactly what every woman wants to say when she is with a man that brings a little fire to her soul. When you hear it, you may feel inclined to do a bit of chair dancing, or pour a sultry glass of Merlot and just skip dinner altogether."
Caren Quinn | The Bull 103 | Fort Worth, TX

"Sultry can have a dusty road covered perspective and Adrian Johnston with her newest single, "Rather Have You,' captures the gritty anthem of love and attraction. Adrian delivers with strong lyrically driven rhythm strapped tightly to a full on small town country band with a big time country sound."
Charley Jordan | Lone Star 102.5 KHLB | Mason, TX

"Adrian Johnston's "Rather Have You" stands out by not being a 'sound-alike' with a driving back-beat moving the tightly produced package with a real ending, not a perpetual fade."
Ken Bass | Variety 95.1 FM - KALH | Alamogordo, NM























Johnston, a Dallas native, hit the ground running in 2014 by releasing a self-titled EP that became a Top 200 iTunes Country Album. To date, she has had four songs on the Top 100 Texas charts with "Just Another Blonde" (#94), "Avalanche" (#21),"It's A Song" (#36) and the current single which is quickly moving up the charts. In addition to radio success, Johnston was nominated for "New Female Vocalist of the Year" for the Texas Music Awards in 2015. 

"Rather Have You" is from Johnston's forthcoming EP which is being produced by Maloy and due out in spring 2017. The single is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and other popular digital retailers.
