I'll be releasing a new single on Feb 14 called "I'm Your Man." This song is a re-recording of the opening track from my album "Get Summer Back." I asked my friend Jake Singleton to play drums on the track and the result is a song slowed down to half time, but one with a little more pop to it than the original recording (because of his skill and the way the drums are played). I also had my friend Dan Dugmore play pedal steel on the song to blend a twangy country feel with the rock style in the song. Dan is one of the best pedal steel players in the world and has been playing pedal steel since the early 1970s, when he toured extensively with Linda Ronstadt and recorded pedal steel on two of James Taylor's best known songs: "Carolina On My Mind" and "Something In The Way She Moves." Dan has also played on albums from a lot of country music's premier artists (Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Keith Urban and many others). Having Dan and Jake play on the song added so much texture to it and turned a good song idea into a great recording. Look for "I'm Your Man" on ITunes, Spotify and most other streaming platforms on Feb 14!

Get Summer Back, my new album, is available now on ITunes, Spotify, Google Play, Apple Music, Tidal and loads more digital stores and music streaming platforms. Listen and/or pick up your copy today!

I've worked really hard on this album in my spare time over the past two years and, although I've done a lot of it myself, I've also had a lot of help. More than a few great co-writers wrote with me on 5 of the tracks, some very talented musicians played on this album, a good friend of mine helped me produce one of the tracks in his home studio, and another good friend of mine arranged and conducted a string part for one of the tracks. I couldn't have done it without them and I'd like to give credit where credit is due. So here are the credits...
