NEW SINGLE release! I'm so excited, y'all! It's been a minute since I released a new song, and this time I invited my friends Grammy-nominated Aaron Nigel Smith and Andy Ferguson of Red Yarn to join me. At this live streamed event, Aaron and I will be chatting about "If I Needed You," what the Townes Van Zandt's song means to us, and why we decided to record it for families in this moment in time.

The song was produced by the amazing Andy Ferguson. We can't wait for you to hear it.

You'll also get a sneak peak at the lyric video! Tune in, y'all!
