Check out the exclusive premiere of Ags’ new song ‘Wrong Again (You Lose a Life)’ – from the forthcoming album ‘Wrong Again’ – thanks to Glide Magazine!
Glide says: “In an age where acts like Tyler Childers, Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price, and Colter Wall have been building huge fanbases for playing real deal country music, Ags Connolly is a must listen as he deserves to be right up there with all of these acts”
