NEW SINGLE “LONG AS I’M ALIVE” HITS COUNTRY RADIO AUGUST 29TH!

August 29th couldn’t have come quick enough, my next and BRAND NEW SINGLE, “Long As I’m Alive” hits country radio today!

This song is ME. If you don’t know me, you will feel like you will after you listen to this song.

I had the honour of sitting down and writing with Larry Mccoy, in Nashville and I told him I wanted to write about me and the original, true country. The kind of country music, that got me hooked, from George Jones, to Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Don Williams.

I love everything about this song, from lyrics, to the magic put in to the music. I hope you all enjoy as much as I do and understand who I am after you do.

LYRICS

Daddy spent more time out in the shed
With a beer in his hand when I was a kid
Listening to country music
On the radio

I’d sit right there underneath his feet
Find the groove and feel the beat
I’d learn the words
So I could sing along

It was “Walk the Line”
“The Race is On”
“Rainy Day Woman”
“That’s the Way Love Goes”

I find peace of mind
When a steel guitar starts to wind
Crank it up all the way to 10
Push rewind man play it again

Drink a little drink smoke a little smoke
Long-haired country boy takin’ a toke
As solid as the ground I’m standing on
As long as I’m alive it’ll never be gone

Now that I’m grown I’m a music man
I love the way this Gibson feels in my hands
I got a shed in the back
Some kids of my own

A couple nights a week me and the band
Do a little three chord five piece jam
A bottle of Jack bringin’ country back
Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on

I find peace of mind
When a steel guitar starts to wind
Crank it up all the way to 10
Push rewind man play it again

Drink a little drink smoke a little smoke
Long-haired country boy takin’ a toke
As solid as the ground I’m standing on
As long as I’m alive it’ll never be gone

So when you see me up here on this stage
I want you to know how I was raised

I find peace of mind
When a steel guitar starts to wind
Crank it up all the way to 10
Push rewind man play it again

Drink a little drink smoke a little smoke
Long-haired country boy takin’ a toke
As solid as the ground I’m standing on
As long as I’m alive it’ll never be gone
