Backwoods Creek Release New Single ‘Better Days’
The BCMA has teamed up with national promoter MAM Roots to spotlight a new release from an upcoming artist each week. We’re delighted to announce that our Country Release Friday artist this week is Backwoods Creek. Backwoods Creek’s new single ‘Better Days’ is available now to buy or stream on all major platforms and you can catch a live video of the single on @mam_roots IGTV from 2pm today.
Backwoods Creek take us back to ‘Better Days’ with their hard-hitting new single. A tried and tested singalong anthem, this is one for all those fans reminiscing back to the days before the world went on pause. Lyrically ‘Better Days’ tells a deep story of hardship and overcoming, ending with an uplifting & very relevant sentiment ‘I’ll see you again’. Of course the song wouldn’t be complete without the signature Creek sound – driving drums, deep bass, dual guitars and powerful vocals – starting the fire for when things return to normality.
Despite festivals and shows being postponed, Backwoods Creek see no reason to sit back and watch the world go by. Instead of a filled touring schedule, the Creek boys are keeping fans warm with a constant stream of content for them to sink their teeth into, including multiple new releases and their ever-popular video series, the ‘Creek Cave Sessions’ (click to find out more).
You can be sure that once fans and newcomers alike experience The Creek from their desks at home, they’ll be counting down the days until concerts start again!

From the heart of London town, Backwoods Creek bring something to the table most choose to shy away from. Unashamedly ready to make you sing, laugh and cry, this quintet are picking up the broken pieces of the world and putting them back together, one show at a time.
Since early 2017 the Creek have been carving out their own unique path playing multiple sold out shows and festivals (such as AEG’s Country2Country and Manchester’s own Buckle & Boots Festival) whilst also receiving countless nominations at various UK award shows – going on to win the BCMA “Video of the Year” award for their mid-2018 single – ‘When I Grow up’.
In between their uncompromising tour schedule, the Creek Boys followed up on 2018’s ‘It’s About Time’ EP with this year’s singles, ’Coulda Been You’ & ‘On the Line’, both of which were well received and featured regularly on BBC radio and Country Hits radio.
Building on this success of their previous releases, ‘Better ‘Days’ will aim to further establish the band in the both country & rock scenes, with a powerful message behind a unifying singalong sound. Quoted as being reminiscent of Zac Brown Band, Eagles and maybe just a hint of The Allman Brothers Band, Backwoods Creek are proving that you can be an authentic country rock outfit while being from the other side of the pond.
