NEEDTOBREATHE AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD DELIVER “SHOWSTOPPING” PERFORMANCE OF “I WANNA REMEMBER” ON THE CMT MUSIC AWARDS

Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 12:00pm

GRAMMY Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE gave the debut television performance of their new single “I Wanna Remember” featuring seven-time GRAMMY Award winner Carrie Underwood on the CMT Music Awards last night, Wednesday, June 9, garnering applause from critics and fans alike. Watch the performance HERE.
 
Crowned as one of the most showstopping moments of the evening by both 
US Weekly and ET Online, Billboard shared that it was “one of many strong genre- and gender-blending performances” featuring “Bear Rinehart and Underwood’s vocals intertwining like leather and lace,” and praising, “the love song about wanting to remember an especially romantic moment felt particularly poignant as we head into a summer where new memories will be made after putting dreams on hold for more than a year.”
 

American Songwriter boasted, “Underwood’s powerhouse vocals blended with Bear Rinehart’s warm rasp effortlessly, delivering a goosebump-inducing performance,” while CMT.com shared “NEEDTOBREATHE’s pulsating rock joining with Carrie Underwood’s airy, insistent voice has made their latest single, ‘I Wanna Remember,’ a quick-rising 2021 favorite. The rock quintet performing in the round with the most-awarded artist in CMT Music Awards history yielded a strong, heavy take on the track.”
 
“I Wanna Remember” will appear on NEEDTOBREATHE’s forthcoming studio album, Into The Mystery, which is due for release on July 30 via Elektra Records. The album is available to pre-order and pre-save 
HERE. Limited edition merch offerings are available exclusively through NEEDTOBREATHE’s online store HERE. The album’s full tracklist features additional collaborations with Jon Foreman of Switchfoot and Natalie Hemby of The Highwomen. Into The Mystery was announced last month alongside the release of the album’s lead single and title track. The band also shared an accompanying music video that premiered on People.
 
This Fall, NEEDTOBREATHE will embark on their massive Into The Mystery Tour with support from Switchfoot and The New Respects. The 38-city trek will visit iconic venues such as Denver, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Los Angeles, CA’s Greek Theatre, and see the band perform their first-ever headline show at Nashville, TN’s Bridgestone Arena. The Into The Mystery Tour will kick off on September 7 in St. Louis, MO, and wrap on October 30 in Atlanta, GA. Tickets for all dates are available now 
HERE.
 
The past 12 months represent one of the most prolific periods in the band’s career thus far. They recently unveiled Live from the Woods Vol. 2—a live album recorded during three sold out, socially distanced outdoor concerts at Pelham, TN’s famed The Caverns. The band previewed the album with an appearance on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden, performing “Alive.” 
Meanwhile, Out of Body debuted in the top 5 across three Billboard charts, and received critical acclaim from Billboard, Spin, Southern Living, American Songwriter, Taste of Country, and more.

About NEEDTOBREATHE:
Since 1998, NEEDTOBREATHE have quietly emerged as a dynamic force in rock music, topping the charts, selling out historic venues, and generating hundreds of millions of streams to date. The band have gathered one platinum single, four gold singles, and a gold album. Along the way, “Multiplied” notched their first GRAMMY® nomination. Simultaneously, they performed to sold out crowds at arenas and amphitheaters coast to coast. In addition to garnering two nods at the Billboard Music Awards, they’ve attracted acclaim from People, Rolling Stone, Forbes, and many more. In 2020, they sowed the seeds for rebirth with Out of Body. It bowed in the Top 5 of three Billboard charts and reeled in acclaim. Within weeks of its release, the quintet—Bear Rinehart [vocals, guitar], Seth Bolt [bass, vocals], Josh Lovelace [keys, vocals], Randall Harris [drums], and Tyler Burkum [guitar]—stole away to an old historic house in Columbia, TN where they lived together, ate together, laughed together, and recorded together for three weeks in the fall of 2020. They returned home with their eighth album and documentary Into The Mystery [Elektra Records]. It’s the kind of record that could only be made by a band who has been through it all and still has enough faith to keep encouraging one another. It’s NEEDTOBREATHE.
