"Cold Dead Hands" Ode to the American gun owner
(Nashville, Tenn. – March 14, 2017) – Country recording artist, Dustin Collins, is earning a name for himself with his current single, “Cold Dead Hands.” Debuting at #1 in its first week on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart, the track is an ode to the second amendment and takes a firm stand in support of an American’s right to bear arms.
“Cold Dead Hands” is the first single to hit radio from Collins’ newly released EP, delivering a real country sound that listeners today are craving.
Collins speaks about the track, stating, “’Cold Dead Hands’ was written as an anthem to the American gun owner. An anthem to everyone who is tired of being told the way they live is wrong and that there’s something wrong with them for having morals, values, and tradition.” He continues, “It’s not a gun thing, it’s a culture thing.”
