Sean Stemaly is making traditional country cool again with the release of “As Far As I Know,” a heartbreak anthem that fans will instantly connect with.

The track boasts a throwback country sound and tells the story of a man who is trying to hold on to his small-town love for as long as possible, however, it appears she has her sights set on life beyond the county line.

The familiar storyline was one Stemaly, who taught himself how to sing while working on a tractor, connected with instantly.

“From the second my team played me ‘As Far As I Know,’ I immediately connected with it,” he shared in a statement. “It’s line for line a story I had actually lived. When I was 18 living in Evansville, IN, my girlfriend at the time struggled with our small-town life. Let’s just say she hung a left at the big church and I never saw her again. That’s why I knew I had to cut it – I can sing it every night at shows and tell a real story, and that’s what country music is all about. Thank you to Hunter Phelps, Justin Wilson and Jameson Rodgers for writing such a good, honest song and letting me bring it to life.”
