Before kicking off an exciting season of globe-trotting for his headlining world tour, Evans used a live band for the first time to record the song which he co-wrote with Chris Destefano and Evan ‘Kidd’ Bogart at Nashville’s Southern Ground studios. He and Destefano, who also co-produced the track, then put finishing touches on the production 10,000 miles away in Evans’ native country of Australia.
“I wrote ‘Diamonds’ for my wife and I’m so stoked to release it as a single,” Evans shared. “It’s a fun love song, but deeper than that it celebrates that journey from lost to found you feel when you meet that person and everything changes forever.
“I handpicked my dream band for the session and I can hear each of their personalities in the record. It just sounds really fresh to me, I’m really proud of that and I can’t wait to start playing it live!”
With a career-total of 375 million career global streams to date, “The Nashville Sensation” (People) is known for his thrilling, one-of-a-kind performances and he continues to share his acclaimed live show with audiences on his 2019 world tour spanning eight countries and more than 24 headlining shows.
The tour included a run of UK dates in September which saw him play a sold out show at London’s O2 Academy Islington, as well as nights in Glasgow and Liverpool.

From chart-topping success with the gold-certified US hit single ‘Kiss Somebody’, followed by a 23-week #1 with ‘Day Drunk’ in Australia, countless awards and headline and support tours around the globe, it won’t be long before the whole world calls Evans a Country music superstar.
