Covid-19 Confessions 

It's True COVID-19 is effecting us all over the world.  I watched Zac Brown break down because he had to layoff 90 people he'd just spent the last 5 years with and I wouldn't wish that on any one.  It's bad enough all my local friends who depend on the venues, the cooks, waitresses, bartenders and owners.  It sort of feels like a bad reality tv version of punked only it's not funny.

What's Next?? 

After Freaking out for a bit because there's no way in hell this is only impacting 14 days I'm going to take this as a sign. 

Funny story 2nd time I went full time into music it was by necessity.  I got laid off  from my truck driving job and then started gigging in 3 projects

NO GIGGING ALLOWED right now sooooo a ton of my friends are going live and or you can join me in watching the replays on Midwest Music TV

April 1st is less than 13 days away lets hope things get a little closer to normal by then.

Would You Guys Like to See Me Go Live?? When?? Make sure to reply with your preference Friday, Saturday or Sunday and what time I'll take the most popular requests and Go Live on the bands Facebook Page check back tomorrow for pinned post.

All the Best in 2020 

You know who you are but communication is important and this means a lot to me I want you to understand that I am eternally grateful to everyone of you listed in the liner notes of the 17 singles and 2 EP's You supported this year.  Thank You.  I really see this whole year as a growth year in our relationships which all started from a simple desire to make #moremusicin2019 

The years not over.  It's an ice skating rink, literally, as soon as you step outside here in MN and I'll be driving to the gig here in an hour or so after I grab a bite and finish thanking you again for hanging in there with me. It's not always easy but we made it. We literally couldn't have done it without your support. 

We also got help from Midwest Country Music Association, SongTown, SongTown Midwest Skycircie, 6 Figure Songwriting, Don't Keep Your Day Job,            Sync Cohort, Triple Threat Artist, Schwilly Family Musicians and What the Bleep Podcast

We listened to you.  Started paying more attention to what you asked us for and as a result we have a new website you can connect directly with us from to download, subscribe for rewards and we even put in a few free downloads just to make it worth your while to explore and to say thanks for the kickass year.

#moremusicin2020 I hope you'll join us this year as we attempt to produce more and better music make more friends and relationships and certainly adopt more members to our Dirty Country Family.

Start A Revolution 

Just take a look on here and you'll find the Spotify PreSave for Start A Revolution.  Hands down the heaviest song I've written all year.  Written with a Zombie tv show in mind we think it couples well with the zombie apocalypse.


For my musician friends in the area I'll see you at the Midwest CMA Songwriters Conference next weekend.



Available through all of the major distributers or directly from me if you're on our Email List

Ordinary Hero is available just about everywhere but Spotify Now and will be there I imagine shortly.  Funny story it was scheduled to come out November 1st but when I submitted it I apparently put September 1st for the release date so Poof 2 new singles this Month.

And as previously mentioned Ain't My First Rodeo
