Country music and R&B music have often been painted as incongruous musical genres. It has been my assertion that this continued misrepresentation (maintained since the birth of the corporate music industry) was/is attempt to keep people at odds. In reality, soul music and country music share origins, histories, and heart. The genres have come together more times than most people know, sometimes being interwoven so much it's impossible to differentiate.

I've chosen to throw a party celebrating these two seemingly different genres harmoniously intersecting. It's an experiment and I hope you'll join me in taking this musical adventure.

Your Pal,
