Upcoming Dates

Country, Americana & Christian

Three new songs were released this month:

Willie and Cowboys

This song is about Willie Nelson and some other Country singers who were or still are influential in this genre. It's sung as a duet with Waylon Jennings undertones. The song has received great reviews when given to selected people for comment before it was released.

The Land of the Free

The song is Americana at its best. It's about service personnel defending Democracy and reminding people that the freedom they enjoy comes at a price. It's 'home made apple pie and mom' type song.

To The Lord my Friend 

The lyrics have been described as beautiful and the vocalist, Ms Sarah Burk, sings like an angel. Her voice is similar to Crystal Gayle. The song is a true story of a couple who were struggling and found purpose and strength through Christianity.

Exciting news with two more releases before Christmas:

When did Love Die in this Relationship

Wow, this is a Pink type song similar to Raise Your Glasses. There's a lot of excitement surrounding this song. There's attitude and of course a full band playing behind the vocalist.

The Longest Day of my Life

This is an unabashed love song. The song reflects that the man is so in love with his wife that the day is never ending because each day is the longest day of his life because he's with his partner. A wonderful song written for the romantic in us all.

2 New Songs released
2 New Songs Released

Two new songs released today as follows:

Please No More (I've had enough today) This song is about domestic abuse. The lady in the song was upbeat and looking forward to her new relationship with her partner. Unfortunately, her partner starts beating her up. She feels it's her fault and apologies for getting in his way. Eventually, she realises that she is not the problem and leaves her partner. She now knows it's not her fault and looks forward to a bright future.

Strings of my Heart. This song is about a partner who knows that the other one is cheating. He allows her to continue for awhile hoping that they'll still be together. However, in the end he tells her to go.
