Rising country singer-songwriter Karissa Ella is turning up the heat with her newest single “Bad Summer.” With strong guitar riffs, a toe-tapping beat and catchy lyrics, listeners are immediately transported to a hot country night with a solo cup in hand. Written by Ella with Alex Seier and Tony McVaney, “Bad Summer” is the perfect way to celebrate finally coming together after being apart this past year. Whether you are tailgating, driving around or “kickin' in a parking lot,” you will want to turn this anthem up loud.
“I am so excited that “Bad Summer” is finally out! This song is a reminder to let loose and have fun. It doesn’t matter where you’re at or where you’re going, as long as you are doing what you love with people you care about, you just can’t have a bad summer! I hope listeners enjoy this new single and stream it all summer long!” said Karissa Ella.
Returning to her country roots after premiering with a pop-country sound, Karissa is following the road paved by her country music heroes. Prior to this original release, Karissa highlighted her love of country music with The Acoustic Sessions. It included covers of “Maybe It Was Memphis,” “Who I Am” and “You Can’t Make Old Friends” featuring Johnny Gates. Karissa is excited to be establishing her most authentic self as an artist with “Bad Summer” and looks forward to releasing more original music later this summer.
