Once again embracing her catchy positivity, country music sweetheart Tania Kernaghan’s new single Here’s To It is all about epitomising the good things in life. Tania’s outlook on life is certainly one of a cup half full, and it is hard not to get swept along in that buoyant feeling when listening to the music that she has been writing for her forthcoming album – slated for release mid-2020.
Here’s To It is the follow-up from her recent chart-topper Better Worn In, which debuted a fresh songwriting partnership between Tania, Nick Wolfe of The Wolfe Brothers and her sister Fiona. The new feel-good song is another track written from this exciting partnership, and produced with the help of Nick in his Tasmanian studios. The dynamic between the three is evident in the musical chemistry – there is something about this new music that Tania is creating that is more than a little special. Here’s To It is a summer anthem, a track that will end up as a soundtrack to many a get-together.
The track was penned at a songwriting catch-up one cold autumn morning at Nick’s house in Tasmania. It has a personal back story to Tania and Fiona. Inspired by a toast that their mother – Pam – makes during catch-ups with family and friends, when raising her glass; the song grew from there. “We were sitting around his dining table, huddled around the heater, throwing around some song ideas out there,” says Tania. “When we talked about the toast that mum is renowned for, Nick got very enthusiastic about pursuing that as a lyric. A big chunk of the chorus is how the toast is presented.”
The main message Tania hopes music fans take home from the positivity of Here’s To It, is to grab life by the horns. She is also extending her family tradition to other families. “I hope that it will be an extension from our family to everyone out there who are celebrating any occasion,” she says. “I hope they too will take on this saying and heed the advice!”
