He’s back today with another new single from his forthcoming Little Songsalbum called “Corralling the Blues.”
This new tune finds him being pretty dang honest about the fact that he has to keep himself busy and his hands working, so his mind doesn’t wander and start spiraling about all of the fears and anxiety that come to him at the end of the day:
“If I keep my hands workin’ It holds off the hurtin’ For the work is all but true But when the days at a close And I’m all alone
You can guess where my mind wanders to And it’s a feelin’ I have known Since before I was grown I’m howlin’, corraling the blues”
It’s a great play on words and song title for the Canadian country singer, who spends much of his time in his native country working cattle and being the authentic cowboy that he is, which is a prominent theme throughout a lot of his music.
After almost three years without a new project, I think we’re in for something really special with this new album, which is slated to drop here soon on July 14th:
“New Single out today. ‘Corralling the Blues’ is a simple little waltz I wrote some time ago. Hope you all like it! Available on all streaming platforms.”
This will also be the first album he’s released since signing a deal between his current, indepdenent label La Honda and major label RCA Records.
