IAN MUNSICK SHARES FAN-REQUESTED
WESTERN WEDDING EP, OUT NOW
Fans have long-shared with Ian Munsick how they danced to his songs, ruggedly earnest and humbly romantic, at their weddings. With such fans in mind, the Wyoming native has crafted an EP befitting of a Western Wedding (listen HERE). The eight-track project comprises four of his original songs, with both piano-backed and instrumental-only versions of each. See track listing below.
“Over the last few years, requests for me to make ‘piano versions’ of my love ballads have overflown my inbox,” Munsick shared. “I’m always so honored when couples use my music for their wedding soundtrack, or when one of my songs epitomizes a relationship between two people. All of these instances have inspired my Western Wedding EP. May your love grow as tall as the Rockies and last as long as the rivers winding through them.”
As Holler described, Munsick empowers listeners to “experience the emotional ebbs and flows of the Green River, feel the highs and lows of the Grand Teton and witness the wild, free-spirited euphoria of a band of mustangs riding off into the sunset.” Western Wedding follows his Me and A Fiddle EP (listen HERE), released in June alongside intimate live performance videos filmed in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Munsick released his full-length sophomore album White Buffalo earlier this year, earning accolades from Billboard, American Songwriter, GRAMMY.com, MusicRow and more. The album’s flagship single, “Long Live Cowgirls” (with Cody Johnson) has earned 105 MILLION streams and been certified Gold by the RIAA. A solo version of the acclaimed duet is due in September.
Fans can catch Munsick on Morgan Wallen’s One Night At A Time World Tour Aug. 30 at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, PA. This fall, the celebrated entertainer will embark on his headlining The Buffalo Roams Tour. The run will feature a rotating lineup of special guests including Giovannie & The Hired Guns, Randall King, Triston Marez, Catie Offerman, Tanner Usrey, Jake Worthington and Chancey Williams.

About Ian Munsick:
A native son of Wyoming, Ian Munsick is painting a stampeding, spirited portrait of the American West with his sophomore album White Buffalo, out now. The 18-track album spans unfiltered tales of romance and ranch life, hard-working anthems with honkytonk hooks and mountain-time odes to family and forever-young fun. It builds upon the spacious roots-pop beauty he introduced on his major label debut, Coyote Cry. Over the past three years, the 30-year-old has accumulated more than half a billion global streams and a host of accolades. He has been named an “Artist to Watch” by Spotify, CMT, Fender, MusicRow and more. A seasoned entertainer, having grown up tending cattle by day and playing music in a family band each night, Munsick toured recently alongside country music superstars Morgan Wallen and Cody Johnson. Beyond his noteworthy professional accomplishments, he has also become both a husband and a father. Now the Warner Music Nashville recording artist and multi-instrumentalist is representing his home, and its special cast of people, like never before. The first release from White Buffalo, standout duet “Long Live Cowgirls” (with Cody Johnson), hit No. 1 on SiriusXM’s The Highway Hot 30 Countdown, was named one of Amazon Music’s Best Country Songs of 2022 and recently received RIAA Gold-certification alongside “Long Haul” off his debut album Coyote Cry. Fans of Ian Munsick will always find an open heart, natural awe and plainspoken honesty as he rides on… bringing the West to the rest.
