The McClymonts commented on the support from the country music industry with Sam saying, “We’ve been planning for the release of the album and the tour for over a year and we had to make some tough decisions when it came to whether to release the album at this time”. Mollie added “We are so grateful to the country music community for getting behind us and showing us that we made the right decision to get the album out now.”
Brooke commented, “We can’t wait for everyone to hear the album and hope they can join us for our “Songs from Mayhem to Madness” album launch on Saturday.”
