My new single "When All The Stars Have Died" is out now!

My new single "When All The Stars Have Died" is out now!

Sometimes songs are written and sometimes they are received. This was one of those songs.

I was driving in my car in silence (without music blaring or podcast distracting my mind like I usually do). Sitting in a little bit of traffic, I began singing this chorus.

Word for word.

Melody was so clear to me.  

I made a voice memo and took it to Gabe Dixon the next day and we finished what has turned out to be maybe my favorite song I've been a part of.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year Campaign

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year Campaign

I was recently nominated to be a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign. My wife Katy and I have several close friends who have been affected by leukemia, so I decided to look into it more and was impressed with everything I discovered about the organization and the work they are doing. 

Becoming Man of the Year is all about dollars raised, and I am asking you today to join me in my ambitious campaign.

Thank You

Thank You

The Getaway Tour with Parachute is over now. Songs were sung. Friends were made. Buses were set aflame. I'd call it a success.

I can't say enough how much respect and love I have for Parachute and the people they surround themselves with. They were so gracious to Andrew and me and they put on a great show every night.

To the fans of Parachute that offered up your emails, all I have to say to you is that you were incredible to play music for. Thank you for that. Hopefully, we will see you around in your area again!

Until then
