16/1/2018

Runaway Dixie - Fishin' In The Dark (Digital Download Only)
It has also been released for radio airplay through CRS. (Tuesday 16th of January.)
This is the first single from Runaway Dixie's forthcoming 5th album to be released mid 2018.
South Australian based three-piece band, RUNAWAY DIXIE, has had great success with their own original material, which has seen them become Golden Guitar finalists in 2016 and 2017 and their original 'Southbound Train' has secured a finalist in the 2018 Golden Guitar Awards.
They have also had great success with their revival treatment of established songs, such as the Oak Ridge Boys classic “You’re The One (In A Million),” and others.
“Fishin’ In The Dark” was a No. 1 hit in 1987 for The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and RUNAWAY DIXIE have reinvented it with a fresh approach in their own style.
This track is the first single from the forthcoming 5th album release from RUNAWAY DIXIE.The single is available for purchase via the digital product download page.
Thank you for your support of Runaway Dixie. :)
