Have you ever been that guy? A guy who has learned his lesson. What lesson do you ask? You know the one who regrets messing around on his significant other! 'Hell and Back' is about that guy. It's a reminder to be faithful and true to your loved one. Going down the other path can get you in trouble quick and why hurt someone you love anyhow. 

How do you create your music?

I build each song like a house. It's well thought out with each single able to stand on its own foundation. Life experiences inspire me to make music. The fact that music is universal drives me to keep writing, recording and making an impact!!! 

In the past, I have also accepted other songwriters' material that meets the standard but it's a careful consideration when you set out to invest so much time in each release. 

 
 

How do you think this release represents your current direction..

The current direction of my music takes you back to the era of early country music. In the early days of country music, there were many poor musicians. They performed live music at certain times just to feed their families. Not much of a glamorous life but necessary to survive. Their songs seemed to resonate from the soul to express what they were going thru. I believe that Country music should stay within these guidelines! To me, there is nothing better than an honest lyric. 

What most inspires you? 

I would have to say nature and the outdoors really inspire me. I enjoy traveling around just to check out new sights. Going through a big city or just a tiny town gets me ready to crank out a new tune. New experiences like zip-lining behind Barbara Mandrell's mansion in the hills. (inside joke).

There's nothing like the feeling you get when your mind is blown by a melody, guitar chord, lyric, performance, etc. That feeling stirs my soul and compels me to keep creating even when it seems like no one is listening or no one cares.

Behind The Music with Jon Hannz on A.T.L.I.G and remembering where you came from

Artists I’ve been hearing are making very good music but sometimes it’s just for the industry and not something that resonates with me. I try to make music for the people that had to grow up like me and could not make the changes I did! So I try to empower my generation to do all and be all!

Sirens and Shelter talks about connecting with people through music on behind the music

I have very little interest in the music business. For me, creating, releasing and performing music is about connecting with people, not the number of likes, downloads, views, streams or sales. I take pride in my work and that will always trump trying to “make it”, whatever that means.

Behind the Music with Cabela and Schmitt on Dancing Shoes

Music serves us in so many ways. We may not always be able to choose what life brings us, be can choose to put our dancing shoes on and stomp away. If you stumble, make it part of the dance. 'Dancing Shoes is about that free going spirit you get when you're stomping your feet and dancing to the beat of your own drum.
