"The best part is I'm not 17 anymore. I can actually get in the places we play now" laughs Jamie .
Now almost four years later, the Nashville natives are working on new music, for a new album.
"It's a great song with a lot of energy a great first song to come out with" says Jamie.
"Hung Up" has been playing on the radio for a few weeks and was officially launched on Tuesday. From the first few notes, it's easy to distinguish that the song is a Hot Chelle Rae tune, but still different than any single they've released before.
"We've released a lot of songs about having fun, forgetting about ex, but this is the first love song that is up-tempo" says Ryan.
Over a year ago "Hung Up" was written on a whim and then randomly brought in as the single.
"Somebody was at a piano and we were about to sit down in studio and write and we walked in this house and was like what if itI was like, "I'm hung", but then like, up on you" says Nash.
"We are always writing on road. It eventually just made it's way back around. It had been there, but we did other songs and then we were like what about that song hung up" says Ian.
It's one of several dozen they've written since their last album release, but they aren't done yet.
"We have 60 songs written but only love about 5. So gonna keep on writing" says Nash.
Meanwhile they hope "Hung Up" soars, so they can release their new album - no later than this summer.
"Cant' say much about album but it's gonna be exciting" says Ryan.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
