Howdy y’all! I know, I know…. it’s been too long since my last record, “The Ranch” was released. Thank you for your patience. I’m happy to say a new album is underway! I’m very excited about these new songs and can’t wait for you to hear them. I feel lucky to be working again with Memaw (Loretta Lynn) and a handful of other extraordinary musicians in Tennessee. Some of the same crazy crew of musicians will be adding their touch to the analog tape, in addition to some amazingly-talented special guests! When all is said and done, this album will be pressed to vinyl ! (as will “Bittersweet Batch” !) All of this costs money, as you might imagine, much more money than I have. But we’re all much stronger in numbers. So I’m grateful to have teamed up with PledgeMusic, who has put together a way to bring YOU onboard for the whole experience!
Here’s how it works:
1. MAKE A PLEDGE!
I’ve come up with various exclusive items / experiences which are listed at the right hand side of this page. You will receive a digital download of the new album before its official release, just by making a pledge.
2. SPREAD THE WORD!
Please forward, repost, retweet, share the link, tell your friends, + scream it out your windows! This project only happens if we all come together.
3. RECEIVE EXCLUSIVE UPDATES!
Once you pledge, you’ll instantly have access to the Private Update Section of the PledgeMusic website.This will include pledger-only content with behind-the-scenes special features. These updates will range from photos and video footage of the studio, never-before-seen videos of some new songs, and general progress reports that will let you know where the project is at.
YOUR pledge will help cover studio fees, musician + arranger fees, manufacturing costs, distribution + promotion. PledgeMusic is a special platform that builds a direct, personal connection between the artist, the music, and the audience, all while embracing the future of how music is produced. Everyone becomes actively involved in this album release. It’s a community project by the people, and for the people!
When the target goal has been reached, a portion of what you pledge will be donated to the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV). Not only will you be part of this exciting, music-creating process, but you will be helping NNEDV to provide training and resources about domestic violence for communities, advocates and victims. Awesome!

Please consider pledging whatever you can.
Thank you so very much for your support !
Big love to all of you. ❤️
PS. The Record Release Party will be held at my home (The Finger Farm). We’re going to be having a HUGE house concert, and ANYONE WHO DONATES GETS TO COME FOR FREE! 🙂
