Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) and recorded at Cobb’s studio in Georgia, Made by These Moments is filled with the band’s signature genre-blending sound, as they meld electric rock and roll with southern soul. Across these eleven tracks, The Red Clay Strays explore fundamental elements of the human condition, reflecting on faith, love and redemption.

Of the project, lead singer Brandon Coleman shares, “Made by These Moments shines a light on overcoming the battles we face in life like loneliness, depression, and hopelessness. We hope you listen and recognise that our pain has a purpose.”

With over 100 million streams to date, the track spent a week at No.1 on Spotify’s Viral 50 USA Playlist and six consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Americana Singles chart. The song also reached No.84 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, No.7 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart, No.16 on the Billboard AAA chart and No.18 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and continues to gain support across genres.
