A look back at Tug Of War/New Video 

Back in June I released my seventh album, Tug Of War, on Blue Élan Records. Now that I've just finished recording my eighth album and am preparing for that release, I'd like to take one final look back and share one more song from Tug Of War before I release my new music.  

I'm incredibly grateful for the amazing response to Tug Of War from fans and critics alike, and to the radio stations and publications all over the world for embracing it. The album placed high on the Bluescharts and hit #1 on the Tennessee Roots Music chart for several consecutive weeks. It debuted at #3 on iTunes and has had a song in the top Blues Hot Tracks for over 9 months now.  

Many of the songs on the album are about coping with life's tumultuous moments and coming out on the end stronger than before. Many of the tunes are extremely personal but being able to write songs about things that trouble me is truly the silver lining. Thank you so much to everyone who supported this very personal music, I appreciate your support immensely. 

Before I release my eighth album, there is one last song from Tug Of War that I'd like to share. It's not a personal song, but it definitely comes from a place of frustration and sadness. It's undeniable that there's a tremendous amount of tension, hostility and division in today's political and social climate that seems to be growing worse with each passing year. The stress of this situation has taken a toll not only on our country and leaders, but on our own day-to-day lives, as it has nearly consumed us and, in many instances, destroyed lives and personal relationships. 

So with great compassion for everyone struggling through uncertain times, and with great hope for a peaceful tomorrow, I'm proud to present to you the official lyric video for "Never Gonna End" off my album Tug Of War.  

Thank you so much everyone, and please stay tuned for more music this year.

Tonight is the night  

Here I am...

Getting some work done in the hotel room before the first night of my 2017 Tug Of War summer tour. Tonight is the night. The culmination of months and months and hours and hours of non-stop work and dedication to booking nearly 50 summer shows. Beginning tonight I get to enjoy the fruits of my labor--the results of working at my computer until 2AM, waking up at 7AM to start again, and spending all day, everyday on one of my many electronic devices, hustling and emailing and calling and texting and staring at maps and routing and planning shows and sometimes wanting to cry from discouragement and scream with frustration.  

This is not easy work, and while I'm in the thick of it I have to forget about balance, forget about songwriting, forget about being an artist, and forget about having a social life. Making stuff happen becomes my full-time job and there's no time to be wasted. Doing all of this is time consuming and often incredibly draining, but it's gratifying and exciting at the same time.  

It's something I do not only out of necessity because I have no one else to do it for me, but because I long to travel and perform. This is my passion, and to be able to create the opportunity for myself to get out there and perform in amazing places is an incredible feeling. Every tour I do is that much more fulfilling knowing that I made it happen for MYSELF and by my own design.  

Right now I'm out promoting my 7th album, and what I truly believe is my best album, Tug Of War, which officially comes out this Friday 6/2 on Blue Élan Records, a label I'm privileged to be a part of. The album is about that perpetual fight between good and bad, one I've experienced a lot of in recent years. Through it all I've learned I'm a fighter, and I'm a survivor. I fight for happiness, I fight for what I want, I fight to get up when I fall down, I fight for my career, and I fight to keep going in a business that often insists on fighting me back. It's a struggle and it's battle, but this album is my victory and this tour is proof that I'm surviving.  

It's truly a Tug Of War.  

So tonight it all begins at a venue with great fans that I always enjoy returning to -- Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
