Award-winning Canadian country star, Andrew Hyatt recently brought his catchy song Still Somethin’” to Canadian country radio

Produced by Scott Cooke (Chase Rice, Dallas Smith), “Still Somethin’” is about the nostalgia of music and how it connects to those moments in life that make us who we are. The song is one of eight tracks from Andrew’s current highly admired EP Four Good Years (604 Records).

In just a few short years, Andrew Hyatt has achieved remarkable success in the music industry, accumulating over 41 million combined global streams. He has secured Top 10 positions on major market stations and has been recognized for awards including the 2022 Canadian Country Music Association Award for Rising Star and multiple Country Music Association of Ontario Award nominations.

Andrew also previously secured the highly coveted “Top of the Country” title from Sirius XM, solidifying his status as an exceptional artist. And has had the honour of performing in high-profile slots on prominent festival stages and tours alongside renowned stars such as Dallas SmithDean Brody, and Tim Hicks, among others.

I had the opportunity to chat with Andrew about his musical journey so far, his new single, and what’s next.

Kat: Can you share with us a bit about yourself and your music journey so far?

Andrew: I was born and raised in northern Ontario. I’ve been playing music since I was about 11 and I’ve always known this is what I would do. I write and sing a mix of country/ country rock and Americana. I mean there’s a lot to say here but I’d say just check out the records and that’ll give you the stories!

Kat: You recently brought your song “Still Somethin’ from your EP Four Good Years to Canadian country radio. Can you share the inspiration behind the track and what the response has been like so far?

Andrew: This song is full of nostalgia for me. It took me back to my first mixtape (yes, I’m old enough to have made tapes) then takes me to my first mix cd, first set of wheels and first girlfriend. I love that the song really catches those core memory moments where music and life intertwine. The response to this song both on streaming and in the live performance world have both been overwhelming… It’s what led us to making it a single for radio.

Kat: What do you find is the most challenging part of your creative process?

Andrew: I think understanding that you can’t always be moving forward. Sometimes it’s ok to sit and be quiet and find peace. I have a tendency to be hard on myself if I take time to regroup and re-energize. Allowing myself grace to be ok is something I’m learning. 

Kat: What has been a career highlight for you so far? What have you learned along the way?

Andrew: I think it’s all highlights. I’ve been able to make a living as a musician for the better part of 10 years. Doing what I love and being surrounded by the best humans is the win for me. If I had to pick 1 moment in a do or die scenario it would have been playing a sold out Budweiser Stage. 

Kat: What else are you currently working on now, and what can fans expect from you for the balance of 2023?

Andrew: We just released a new single called “Still Somethin’” and I’ve got a full band and an acoustic ep ready to go. I always love to dabble in the duality of country and Americana records. I’m excited for people to hear the stories on these records.
