Country trio Honey County are releasing their new single “Woke Up Tired” on Friday, May 22nd, and Sounds Like Nashville has the exclusive first listen of the song. The flirty single finds the all-female group singing about waking up tired after spending all night dreaming about a special someone. The band members sing about this welcome predicament while blending their voices into tight harmonies atop upbeat country instrumentation.
“I woke up tired ‘cause I’ve been running ‘round with you in my dreams / I woke up wired ‘cause I’ve been chasing after you in my sleep / You’re the reason why, baby, I, baby, can’t get through the night and I tried but you’re all that I see / I woke up tired ‘cause I’ve been running ‘round with you in my dreams,” the group sings in the chorus.
The song follows their August 2019 single, “Under Your Influence,” featuring Spencer Crandall. “Woke Up Tired” also kicks off a new chapter for Honey County, as it is the first release to feature new band members Tracy Lambertucci and Sofie Lynn alongside founding member and lead singer Dani Rose.
“This will be our first release with new band members Sofie and Tracy and I’m so excited for everyone to hear them shine on this song,” says Rose. “It’s funny to think we wrote this with our good friend Kalie Shorr almost a year ago and how relatable it is right now. I can say with all certainty I’ve definitely been waking up tired.”

In these wild times we wanted to focus on some exciting positive things happening with Honey County🥁 We are VERY excited to officially welcome @tracy_lambertucci and @iamsofielynn to the band! Tracy has played with us since 2017 (you might recognize her from @stagecoach last year). She’s been a close friend of mine for years now and we are so happy to add her harmonies and outstanding electric guitar skills into our family. Sofie Lynn, literally slid into our DM’s in December asking if we’d be open to writing together and before we knew it we were welcoming her infectious positive energy and beautiful voice into Honey County. While @devonjanemusic & @katierosestump are taking time to focus on their own musical journeys, Honey County is continuing to create new music, working on a new single that we can’t wait for y’all to hear- plus a couple other surprise announcements coming soon 🤍much love & hope you’re all staying safe out there, Dani . 📸 @jadelorna @snapsbysullivan. costume designer @maranda.nichols.persico. 💄 @_wishingwellsnmagicspells
