I’m happy to announce I’ve begun work on a new album. Coming early 2013.
Good things, (very) soon.
Backseat Goodbye | Nowhere Kids
Here’s one of the more upbeat tracks from my new album.
Backseat Goodbye | Happy Human Holiday
Here’s the first single from my new album!
Backseat Goodbye | Long Night Drive
Just realized I hadn’t shared a full track off my brand new album yet! So, here you go :)
P.S. - Tomorrow I’ll be posting the first single from the album!
So, I was sitting here and decided to refresh the iTunes charts, and the funny thing is, I just happened to be listening to my favorite song from my new album, the last track (“Stay Young”), and the part that was playing was the end when I sing “I need a sign tonight” over and over…
And then I realized my album had broke into the top 10.
I’ve got so many thoughts running through my head right now…
Life’s a funny thing.
Is it weird that I’m trying not to cry?
I’ve poured so much of myself into this project over the years.
It probably seems dumb to be so excited over such a little thing, but it just means a lot, you know?
I’m just a kid from a town in Tennessee that felt the need to start singing.
Holy shit. My new album just hit #13 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts! If it reaches the top 10, I don’t know what I’ll do for you all, but it will be something even more awesome than I was going to do before.
P.S. - I wish you all could have seen the look on my face when I refreshed the charts and it had jumped all the way to #13
P.P.S. - This will be my last post about this tonight, unless it breaks the top ten, in which Tumblr will just shut down because my tears of joy will be flooding it
Tumblr, I need your help!
My brand new album just hit iTunes & it’s currently @ #38 in the iTunes Top Singer/Songwriter charts! Now, that’s awesome and all… But I’ve never had one of my albums break into the top 20, sooooo, I’d kind of LOVE to see that happen ;)
And please, feel free to reblog this! I did something crazy & I literally wrote/recorded this album on my own in my bedroom over the past 5 days, so no matter what this already amazing to just go for it and see it get this far.
P.S. - If it does happen, I’ll do something special for you all and give you a free b-side track or something!
In regards to my last post…
Here’s the song I just sat down and wrote, I don’t think it’s quite finished, but I think I’m gonna put it on the album.
Everything’s gonna be alright
Even if I don’t believe it now
I’ll wake up on another flight
It’s a fifteen hour drive
The days fade as the music plays
I’m a singer in these dreams I made
Saved some money from some songs I wrote
About the way I used to be
Just wait I’m gonna prove you wrong
Yeah it’s a mad world out there
But I’ve waited too damn long
To finally be happy
I love my mother and my father too
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To let them know that their son’s so proud
Of the things they’ve done, the plans they’ve made, the lives they’ve changed, the love that never fades
I could never thank you two enough
I hope I can make you proud
Someday I’ll buy you both a big house
And you’ll never have to worry
And we’ll all be happy
You see I love my friends too
Yeah the ones who call and the ones who never do
It gets hard to keep in touch
But that don’t mean a thing
‘Cause we’re all fighting this war
To hell and back with scars to show which side we fought for
