Rising country star Nathan Merovich’s natural twang and four-octave range will pull you in right from the first note. The 23-year-old Dillsburg, Pennsylvania native began playing guitar at the age of seven. He drew inspiration from the greats: Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, Willie Nelson, and Hank Williams, Jr. Today, Nathan is steadily making headway in the country music world, opening for acts such as Big & Rich, Chris Janson, Dylan Scott, Cowboy Troy, Filmore, Seaforth, Caylee Hammack, Sam Grow and many more. July 2019 saw the release of his first single, “90 Proof Pour.” It’s since accumulated more than 175,000 streams. “Mama’s Song,” Nathan’s second single, was released last fall. It has already garnered more than 80,000 streams. His upcoming debut album was produced by Ace Lutz and recorded at Nashville’s County Q Studios. It features contributions from Bruce Bouton, Dane Bryant, Carl Minor, Paul Scholten, Sam Hunter, Tim Galloway, and the late JT Corenflos. Touching upon everything Nathan enjoys and holds near to his heart, the record has a song for everyone.
For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!
To describe my music in three words I would say truth, life experiences, wholesome. I wanted this album to give my fans the ability to have an up close and personal look into my life and my thoughts and feelings…even if they never personally met me.

What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
Definitely performing and recording. Performing because it’s just awesome to watch someone’s face light up in the crowd when you play just the right song! And recording because there’s nothing better then having something you made yourself come to life.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
Oh man, one of the coolest experiences in life. Having the studio musicians just come in and start all playing together and it sounds like everything you heard in your head…it’s mind blowing sometimes.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
You can definitely find me…or not…dressed in camo in the woods somewhere, or a creek fishing. I am an avid hunter…one of my songs on the album, make em drop is about my favorite season, waterfowl..but I love it all. I have a couple buddies who own different hunting shows, if I wasn’t doing music, I would definitely be with them hunting every week!
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
I’m a huge fan of Riley Green. His music just speaks to me and we have a lot in common (based on what I know) so I think that’s why. I’d love to share a stage with him someday!
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
For me, there’s two. The first would have to be Mamas song. My mom actually wrote that song about our relationship, struggling with the hard things in life and how we get through them. The second would have to be It’s Me and Tennessee. Tia and I started that song at a time when I was reeling from driving 13 hours home to Pa from a Nashville trip and I just didn’t want to leave. I had such a pull to stay there, I still do so we are working on a plan for me to get there by next year more full time but that song just talks about the journey back and forth and let’s everyone know where I really want to be.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
Oh yeah, we already have enough for another EP but we are so proud of this album that we know we have to let it ride out for a little. With that said…definitely expect some new stuff by the winter and early 2022. I have some bigger shows in the work for later in the year too so stay tuned for those announcements!
