Country music’s hottest new husband-wife duo, Haley & Michaels (Shannon Haley and Ryan Michaels), grew up just 3 miles apart from each other in California’s ‘Niners’ territory as burgeoning singer/songwriters, yet they did not meet until both had relocated to Nashville in 2014. So, it’s only fitting the duo return to their roots in more ways than one with their debut album Hail Mary.
 
The duo co-wrote all 12-tracks on their upcoming album, set for release on Oct. 4 on Sony/ATV’s label imprint Hickory Records/RED Music.
 
“Every moment we haven’t been on the road, we’ve spent recording, mixing and mastering these songs until they felt the way we envisioned the day we wrote them,” shares Haley & Michaels’ Shannon Haley. “So, to watch these songs take on a whole new context in a movie such as Netflix’s Walk. Ride. Rodeo. and beyond with the NFL tapping the single for Monday Night Football, is really wilder than any dreams we could have had as a duo or as singer/songwriters.”
 
Earlier this year the duo learned the album’s title track and lead single, “Hail Mary,” had been chosen by the San Francisco 49ers for their 2019-2020 season. Furthermore, the duo filmed its music video for the song, directed by the team’s VP/executive producer Rob Alberino and produced by the 49ers, in the stadium of their hometown team. Haley adds, “It’s where we each learned the meaning of teamwork and it’s not just an energizing source for us as football fans…performing here as artists and working with the team is actually living out our dreams!”
 
“We’re releasing a body of work we’ve spent our whole career creating,” adds Michaels. “This album has everything from the first song we ever wrote together to brand new music nobody has ever heard.” He continues, “Since we wrote our wedding song ‘Giving It All (To You),’ we’ve performed everywhere from 'The Today Show' and The Grand Ole Opry to Waffle House and now Levi’s Stadium. We’ve really gotten to live so much of this unique and incredible life together. And since we wrote ‘Hail Mary,’ we’ve spent the past year traveling and performing our music. We’re so excited that we are finally ready to release our first full-length album and celebrate those moments with the fans and share the music with them.”
 
The duo’s recent organic success with “Hail Mary” sparked interest from more than just Sony/ATV and country radio. “Working on high-level productions like the shoot that occurred at Levi’s Stadium is something our production team looks forward to,” explains the 49er’s Alberino. “Anytime you can turn a world-class venue into a stage while a band like Haley & Michaels puts on a show, the final piece is amazing and that’s exactly what happened.”
 
To date, 45 radio stations have played “Hail Mary,” and the song has been featured on some of Spotify’s most premier playlists, landing the duo opening performances for Jason Aldean at Country Stampede as well as ACM Awards’ Party for a Cause.
