New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Sharing "honest, heartfelt and simple" emotions with audiences throughout the Midwest, Country Rocker Zach Linley and The Rebel Daredevils (electric guitarist Jason Beck, lead guitarist Nate Van Vleet, bassist Chad Sherman and drummer Brandon Frederking) are grabbing the bull by the proverbial horns with their five track collection What It Takes produced by Erik Nelson, (Jason Derulo, Boyz II Men). They've been caught in a wild whirlwind these past few years, opening for an array of top country artists including Easton Corbin, Jamey Johnson, David Allan Coe, Gary Allan and Eric Paslay and earning praise from Nyhl Henson, Co-Founder and former CEO of Country Music Television, who called Linley "the Garth Brooks of the New Millennium".

The EP's first single, the high energy title track, is a powerful testament to the work ethic of the classic American working family man. The raucous excitement of "Cold Dead Hands" is the backdrop for his bold stance of railing against limiting his freedom as a gun owner. On the soulful, heartfelt "Honky Tonk Heaven," he talks about the the long hard road of becoming a professional musician. What It Takes also includes "Sick and Tired," a reflective ballad of addiction and the seeking of redemption; and "Don't Forget," a rollicking ride through the wise advice of Linley's beloved grandmother.

"[What It Takes] is my way of paying homage to the blue collar backbone of America, those guys who get up day after day, go to work and even if they never earn what they're worth, they do it anyway to support their families and pay their bills," says Linley. "What It Takes is a strong push from me and The Rebel Daredevils as to where we would like to see country music headed right now - a little less pop, and a lot more heart, a little less about the girl in the cutoffs drinking moonshine, and more about the hardworking people who are the backbone of this country. These songs are about real people, real struggles, and remembering where you came from and what you stand for."

"I love the way we get to interact with the crowds, and I'm always inspired and encouraged by the way they respond to the songs" Linley says. It's all about the opportunity to connect with people and make a difference in their lives."
