Big thanks to Mary Brace for recording “I Talk to God”, a song I wrote a while back with friends Lauren Sanders and Doak Turner. It’s the title cut to Mary’s new record. It is now available for streaming on Spotify and should be available for purchase elsewhere soon. Check it out!
Oh…That Time I Sang Center Stage at The Grand Ole Opry
How in the world did this happen to me??!! It’s a little hard to say–but I’ll give it a shot.
Loving-kindness is how this happened to me. Angels conspired to allow me to play on the most famous stage in country music, the Grand Ole Opry, on February 27, 2016. People, many people, care so much about me and have offered assistance left, middle, and right. But in this case, they went over the top and put all of the pieces together–and voila, here I am sharing “The Safest Place I Know” with 3,000 or so of my closest friends.
ARK Project Now, The Kind Cake, YouInspire.org, The Opry, Mickey Guyton, Greg and Alisa Bieck, how can I ever thank you enough.
A Whirlwind and a Half
So much has gone on in the past few months. I hope to be able to put it into words–it has simply been overwhelming.
Looking forward to sharing more with you soon.
Thanks for visiting.
New Lyric Video
It has been quite an amazing time in the studio with Jordan Lawhead, Greg Bieck, and some incredible musicians. There’s a new album in the works. Hoping you will get a smile and some inspiration from this lyric video just put together.
Had a great write this morning with Elizabeth Marlowe and friends over at Rare Spark, then a jam with Kelsey K in the afternoon. Pretty whooped!
New Canadian Single – “Roll the Windows Down” Released by WYATT
Thanks to the band WYATT, “Roll the Windows Down” has been released as a single to Canadian radio.
Robert K. Wolf co-wrote the song with SB21 Music Publishing songwriters Kris Bergsnes, Jacob Martin, and Phil Roselle. Steve Pasch, SB21 president, immediately saw the potential. The song rocks with reminiscing about great times driving in the country, living fast and young. It’s getting great response with its infectious rhythm and anthemic melody.
“Roll the Windows Down” can be purchased on iTunes Canada.
WYATT is also entered in CBC’s Song of the Summer contest – please vote for the song here.
Writing, Living, Playing
Pretty soon I’ll be off to Berry Hill to get in the writer’s room with my friend E Marlowe. We’ve only known each other about a year, but we go way back. With some folks you just know this.
If I think of what my top songs are these days, invariably E collaborations are right up there. It’s been a bit of a challenge for me, but some new tunes have crept in to my performances–and I’m hoping to feel solid on some that she and I have done. One of my faves is from the female perspective, so that becomes somewhat of a challenge. But occasionally I can get into that headspace.
If you’re around and about, this evening I’ll be at The Commodore Grille in Nashville, with Jamie Jo and Harlan Pease. We’ll be doing a round at about 8:30 pm.
It would be wonderful to see you.
Off to practice. 🙂
Yeah, I laid it down.
This person has spoken. Waited a while on line with Lori. Exercising a cherished freedom. Hope you did too.
The Summer Onslaught
Running through summer here, jammin’ on new songs, making new friends, playing some great shows.
I’m a fortunate man to be able to do what I love and work hard as nails doing it.
More songs coming soon.
Wow. It is hard to believe we are in the middle of April already. The year has been steady-on relentless. No stopping it!
So much to do and so little time. And it already seems like there’s less time! Here’s to doing more with what we’ve been given.
