New Single "Set For Life"
It's been over a year since I released any of my own music. I had to find the right time, and the right song for you to hear. I'm hoping that now just so happens to be that time! Stream it on Spotify here.
Pure Country Pure Heart
I remember seeing "Pure Country" as a kid & I also remember wanting to produce a soundtrack. Well, this little gem comes out today and I was fortunate enough to produce 7 tracks on the album ...I even play the voice of the Dad in the film. So thankful to all the people involved in the making of it and for letting me hear Willie Nelson through my own studio speakers! :)

Excited to hear this song I wrote with Charlie Peacock & Jillian Jacqueline tonight on Nashville! Tune in at 9/8c!
1. I wrote this song with two of the most fearlessly creative songwriters I know: Luke Dick & Natalie Hemby.

3. You KNOW you need a summer jam with some funk! Listen here.

Congrats to my friend and to her fans who have waited years to hear that voice in their stereos!
