“Watch out for sharks and real smooth talkers ...Keep away from Johnnie Walker ...And I know you’ll make it in this town”
Ladies, gentlemen, button pushing cowboys & wide-eyed dreamers, here is my new single release, a small hand-drawn double A-side valentine to the bright lights of Music City.
“Now You Know Nashville/Half A Man” is what some generations may call ‘old fashioned country’, I call it authentic. And when you add Carmen’s experience-etched voice to tales of dreaming big and the wonderment, woes, and characters of Music Row…you have all you need to create your own cinematic imagery.
