For the first time in my life, there was no “happy” New Year. 2017 started out on the toughest note possible, with the death of my best friend and guitarist, Thomas Estep, who was killed in a head-on collision on New Year’s Day. I will have more to say about Thomas, real soon. For now, my band and I are pushing forward, rehearsing and preparing for our shows coming up this spring and summer. I am also excited to be working on a new EP, which I hope to release before summer.
After almost four years of not having new music to showcase I’m really looking forward to jumping back into the studio. It gives me the ability to bring my songs to life, it’s really a beautiful thing. I have been spending a lot of time writing and working on some new material that I have brewing up. Sadie (my 2-year-old Border Collie) hears all my latest tunes before anyone else. I believe she is diggin’ them, so I hope you all will, too!
My latest single, “To Pieces,” has been climbing the MusicRow CountryBreakout Chart for the last few weeks. In case you don’t know, MusicRow is an important chart in the country music world, so it is an honor to be on it. I worked extremely hard promoting this song on radio tour and I am so thankful to all the stations that have been spinning it. I also was really happy to see “To Pieces” has been on Europe’s HotDisc Top 40 chart for 14 consecutive weeks.
I have been really enjoying this process of writing and being creative with this upcoming project! I am just so dang ecstatic about releasing new music!
Until next time,
