"Thank God It Didn’t Work" is easily relatable to folks everywhere who have been faced with challenges in their life and then looked back later grateful that they didn’t work out.

"Thank God It Didn't Work" and my 'Halfhearted" album are all original songs that I wrote mostly after my time on American Idol.
The album title can be interpreted in several ways — which was also my intent. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I want people to take "Halfhearted" on a soul-to-soul level.
I want my fans to connect with each tune personally and, hopefully, it’ll help them in some way and ultimately bring joy. For me, "Halfhearted" is about the duality of everything, from the macrocosmic concept of good versus evil to the darkness and light within each and every one of us.
It’s about taking the two extremes, finding a balance, and living your best life, even when we’re dealt a bad hand and embracing trials and hardships, because they are a part of something much, much bigger.

My new album, "Halfhearted," has just been released. It's been a Top 10 Country Album on iTunes and has received over 2.5 million song streams. Check it out!
