"That's REALLY hot," Denning exclaims as he devours the spiciest chicken on his plate.

Travis Denning is launching brand new weekly variety series, Travis Denning and Friends Do Stuff, and the first episode is premiering exclusively on Country Now

The chart-topping country artist showcases his vibrant personality throughout the series, which features special guest appearances from Denning’s friends and fellow country artists. Bobby Bones, LANCO and Adam Hambrick join the singer/songwriter for a game of HORSE, Kip Moore puts him through the wringer at the gym, Brothers Osborne’s John Osborne joins him for a guitar jam session and Jordan Davis invites Denning over for a backyard grilling session that is not to be missed. 

The first episode finds Denning chowing down on some Nashville hot chicken with his friends Maddie & Tae. They challenge themselves to see who can eat the most chicken without taking a sip of milk.

“The last person to take a sip of milk….you get an “ABBY” t-shirt and that’s it, that’s all you get,” Denning declares with a laugh.

Denning and Maddie & Tae do their best to spark up a conversation while eating the Music City-staple. They go on to recall a time when a few too many tequila shots led to an incident on an airplane as they made their way back to Nashville from a show in Georgia. 

As they prepare themselves to eat the spiciest chicken, the heat ultimately gets to them. 

“Jesus, take the wheel,” Maddie exclaims as she heat of the chicken intensifies. “That is just pain!”

She bows out of the competition first, leaving Denning and Tae to battle it as the winner.

Travis Denning’s latest single, “ABBY,” is a breakup anthem like no other. The cleverly written track initially has listeners thinking Denning is crooning over his ex, “ABBY,” however, in this case, “ABBY” stands for “anybody but you.”  

“And her name is Abby, that’s anybody but you / She’ll have a bad little body, be the life of the party / Drink a cold beer too / She won’t make me go crazy, like you-know-who / And her name is Abby, that’s anybody but you,” he sings. 

“ABBY” has raked in 20 million streams to date and follows Denning’s No. 1 and GOLD-certified single, “After A Few.,” Both tracks are featured on Denning’s EP, Beer’s Better Cold.
