Night in the Country Presents TRISTON MAREZ
This sell-out series continues June 18th with the prestigious Houston Rodeo’s talent competition winner Triston Marez. Inspired and invigorated, Marez moved to Nashville at 18-years-old and quickly got to work. He played four-hour shows on Lower Broadway, fine-tuning his work ethic along the way. He also hit the road, opening for Texas titans like Aaron Watson and Randall King while promoting EPs like That Was All Me and Until I Found You. From the start, he was a distinctive artist, blending the rugged, rule-breaking spirit of Texas country with the melody-driven songwriting he’d sharpened in Nashville.
That sound is whittled to a razor-edged point with 2021’s Triston Marez. Produced by David Dorn and Alex Torrez, the album strikes a balance between youthful enthusiasm and focused maturity. Marez co-wrote nine of the album’s twelve tracks, with modern-day legends like Chris Stapleton penning the remaining songs. Another legend — ’90s country kingpin Ronnie Dunn — appears on “Where the Neon Lies,” turning the song not only into a show-stopping duet, but also a nod to the next generation of melodic, story-driven country stars.
