Wednesday’s luncheon included a live preview of five songs including “Friday Night;” a catchy rocking’ tune “Keep On Fallin’;” a reminder of the power of compassion and forgiveness with “Less Than Whole,” written with Big Kenny; “Country Side of Heaven” featuring Little Big Town‘s vocals on the record; and ‘Song about a Girl,” a co-write that “’aint about tailgates, bonfires, water towers, back roads, hometowns or Chevys. ”
