James Dupré has been very busy since his time on NBC’s “The Voice,” and fans can check out what he’s been up to as his poignant new song “Stoned To Death” is now available on all major platforms, including iTunes. James and the new song have already received rave reviews from some of country music’s most respected critics, including Music Row which lauded him as a “superb vocalist” who “exudes charisma with every note,” and the captivating song, written by Nashville hit-makers Jessi Alexander, Jeff Hyde, and Clint Daniels and produced by Jordan Lehning (Caitlin Rose, Andrew Combs, Kacey Musgraves, Kree Harrison), as a minor masterpiece, “stupendously well-written, boasting both perfectly executed turns of phrases and a beautifully swelling melody.”
The release leads into an exciting weekend for the Louisiana native, as he joins his longtime musical hero and now mentor and friend, Randy Travis, in Opelousas at the St. Landry Cinema for his hometown premiere of “The Price," an independent film they co-star in. To celebrate the occasion, Rolling Stone Country is featuring James, one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” performing a stirring rendition of the Randy Travis megahit, “Promises.”
