Britain’s rising country stars The Shires have released their latest anthemic single, Independence Day. Taken from their upcoming fourth album Good Years, which is out on the 13th March via BMG, the single joins previously released cuts New Year and Lightning Strikes.

Chrissie Rhodes and Ben Earle sum up the song best: “Independence Day is a conversation to someone close to you who is going through a breakup. It’s like putting your arm around them and saying; I know it hurts right now but one day you’ll look back at this moment and realise it is the best thing that ever happened to you.”
