"“Cowtown” by George Ducas"

What country music has right here is a new party anthem with absolutely no mention of dirt roads, moonshine, pink toes or tailgates.

What it does have is plenty of grinding guitars, thumping bass, pounding kick drum and Texas-sized attitude, justifiably. George Ducas is a homegrown Texan and he co-wrote “Cowtown” with another Texas-to-Tennessee transplant, Jim Beavers, so the lyric speaks to those country lifestyles that may have been cultivated more on a ranch than on a farm, more in the cow pen than the turn row.

George has also been penning tunes for others, like Sara Evans (“Real Fine Place to Start”) and Josh Thompson (“Won’t Be Lonely Long”).

Rocking and sassy, “Cowtown” salutes Friday night fun with enough adrenaline-pounding ampage to carry you through Saturday, too. Whether George is speaking specifically about Fort Worth, famously known for its historic stockyards, or any bovine burg out there, it doesn’t even matter.

If this tune doesn’t get you ready to slip on your boots and hit the hardwoods, have another shot. - Country Weekly

"George Ducas Celebrates Release of New Album “4340″ In Nashville"

With new music on the horizon, George Ducas threw an invite-only industry party at Nashville’s S.I.R. (Studio Instrument Rentals) last Thursday (September 26) where he treated party goers to new tunes that will be found on his 4340 album which hits stores next month.

With new music on the horizon, George Ducas threw an invite-only industry party at Nashville’s S.I.R. (Studio Instrument Rentals) last Thursday (September 26) where he treated party goers to new tunes that will be found on his 4340 album which hits stores next month.

Ducas mingled with those in attendance that consisted of close friends, fellow industry supporters, media, his key team and several of his co-writers that can be found on the album, including Jim Beavers who co-wrote the singer’s current single, “CowTown.” After enjoying a premier Bespoke Whisky Tasting Experience courtesy of The Whisky Dog (Nicholas Pollacchi, native of Scotland), Ducas treated the packed room to a musical sampling of songs that will be found on the 12-track 4340 such as “CowTown,” “White Lines & Road Signs,” “Ain’t That Crazy,” “Love Struck,” “All Kinds Of Crazy,” “Amnesia” and “Breaking Stuff.”

“For me, it was a really special night … one I’ll never forget,” Ducas told Roughstock following the event. “To have friends all come together in one night in one room to support me and hear my new music meant the world to me!”

Ducas’ 4340 album will be available for purchase on October 29 on Loud Ranch Records. The collection of songs is his first full-length studio album since the release of Where I Stand on Capitol Records back in the late 90s. Ducas’ previous hit singles include “Lipstick Promises,” “Every Time She Passes By,” “Teardrops” and “Hello Cruel World,” among others. - Roughstock

Amnesia, George Ducas

Most have forgotten how great Ducas' underrated '90s country singles Lipstick Promises and Teardrops were. Here's a reminder. - USA Today


Still working on that hot first release.



“I consider myself very much a singer and songwriter with an emphasis on performing and being out there playing for people is a chance for the songs I write to live and breathe.” 
A Lone Star native whose heart and soul are rooted in the honk tonks, roadhouses and dancehalls, George Ducas is a musical talent seasoned with experience, driven by passion and humbled by a God-given talent. With a string of Billboard charting songs that established him early as a country music trendsetter, George Ducas is a recording artist, hit songwriter, global entertainer and father to his children; his musical offerings encompass a creativity, sentiment, edge and wisdom of a man who lives life with a passion. 
Ducas entered the country music genre as a deep-rooted traditionalist and defined vocalist who brought a contemporary edge to the format in the mid-90s. A Capitol-Nashville Records artist, Ducas was among a hefty roster of award-winning label mates Garth Brooks, Trace Adkins, Deana Carter and Suzy Bogguss. 
Since his success as a national major label and critically acclaimed recording artist (with a string of hits including the Top 10 single "Lipstick Promises”), Ducas took an intended “recording hiatus” to devote his attention to raising his son and daughter (Will and Grace) in their early years. 
With a noticeable personal “presence missed” on mainstream radio in recent years, Ducas has remained a mainstay in the country recording industry –his talents for putting words into music have been recognized by his peers and heard loud and clear echoing throughout stadiums, across the dance floors, and booming from stereo speakers over the past decade. It is only his voice that has been quieted from the “front and center” over the airwaves. His reputation has made him a sought-after songcrafter. 
I laugh when I'm asked the question, “Where have you been?” I'm not coming out of the ‘Lost and Found.” I've been writing, recording and playing gigs for the last ten years… growing into my own skin to become a more confident writer, recording artist and producer. The music “switch” never turns off. I think that's revealed in my music today. 
Making a subtle yet impacting and lasting impression on the country audience and the music industry from the shadows, Ducas has become the “go-to” guy for good songs. His name can be found behind the pen of some of country music's biggest hits including: Sara Evan's No. 1 "Real Fine Place To Start," Josh Thompson's "Won't Be Lonely Long," The Eli Young Band's "Always The Love Songs" as well as cuts recorded by George Jones and Garth Brooks, The Dixie Chicks, Trisha Yearwood and the Randy Rogers Band, only to name a few. 
I’ve never stopped making music; I just stopped making records. In all this time, I have been growing as a man, which ultimately led my musical direction. 
The allure of the night and bright lights, and his fervor to be heard, drew Ducas back into the recording booth taking a short respite and detour from the miles of Texas roads where he’s performed again and again along the trails blazed by hero Willie Nelson and other Texan troubadours before him. Feeding the hunger to record his own new music, the highways nurtured his creative appetite and the call and answer from fans moved him to step from beyond the borders of the big sky and head back to the studio. The result: 4340 !
With a craft mastered by reflections of life lessons complimented by present day maturity, Ducas returns to the country music format to “voice” his songs, and without exception 4340 (Loud Ranch/October 2013) showcases Ducas’ talents to illuminate storylines with defining imagery that brings lyrics to life. 
Featuring co-writes alongside Keifer Thompson (Thompson Square), Jim Beavers (“Red Solo Cup”/Toby Keith, “5150”/Dierks Bentley), Radney Foster, Jon Henderson, Jason Matthews, Blake Wise, Richard Brodock and Jaida Dreyer, the album is stocked with radio worthy tracks and lined with carefully painted musical canvasses including “CowTown” “Ain’t That Crazy,” “Love Struck,” “Amnesia,” “Gimme Back My Honky Tonk” and “I Need To Love You.” 
4340 covers an array of topics. “CowTown” is three minutes of good times; “Amnesia” is a longing with regret (with which I’m very familiar); “Ain’t That Crazy” is a journalistic review of how things change over time, what was once ‘cool’ is no longer hip, unexpected twists and turns in love affairs and ‘changes’ (technological or otherwise) that historically become modern day. The album is relationship driven; what can be bigger than that?
A tunesmith who constructs lyrics that attract the ears of the deeply emotional, light-hearted and the little bit crazy, George Ducas is a captivating music poet and entertainer who satisfies the palate of even the most eclectic and thoughtful of listeners.
