A former Fayetteville resident and University of Arkansas graduate is finding success in the country music world with a new single released recently.
Country artist Mary Heather Hickman, an El Dorado native, who performed regularly with her band ‘The Sinners’ around Fayetteville while she attended the UA, has a new single that has been streamed more that 350,000 times on Spotify and Apple Music since it was released in late February.
The new song, titled “Treasure” is about Hickman’s – let’s call it questionable – taste in men.
“I was talking about how I have the worst taste in men with my best friend and co-writer, Stefanie Joyce,” Hickman said. “I always seem to date guys I think I can fix and we jokingly started writing a song about it. A little while later, and a few Tequila shots in, 'Treasure' was born.”
The track seems to have struck a nerve. A video of her singing the song has been viewed 2.8 million times on TikTok, and became the No. 1 most added song on the MusicRow chart last week.
The song also appeared on Spotify’s New Music Nashville playlist last week, and has been featured on the Women of iHeart Country syndicated radio show.
