Williamsport, PA (PRWEB) July 10, 2010
Confederate Railroad, Randy Travis, Neal McCoy, David Lee Murphy, Hank III, and Chely Wright are just a handful of the Nashville recording artists that Pennsylvania native and country music veteran Johnny Jolin has shared the stage with in his career.
Its no doubt why his fans have highly-anticipated his new single “Blue Collar Man” which has been released to radio and is available for download.
As a veteran of the U.S. Army, Jolin has always been one to show his patriotism in his live shows. However, with the release of 'Blue Collar Man' he hopes to share his admiration for the hard-working blue collar folks that he says 'make this world go 'round.'
I recently sat down with Jolin to ask him about the song and the upcoming album:
JM: So Johnny, what was the message behind your new single?
JJ: The message was simply to remind folks of their parents or grandparents, or maybe even themselves. So many people can identify with the guy I’m singing about in this song.
JM: Who does the song speak about to you?
JJ: I really feel it speaks about a lot of people I’ve known throughout my life. It reminds me of my Grandpap and just a lot of the hardworking in-the-trenches folks I’ve met out on the road over the years. Those are the people I play for and I hope to connect with.
JM: When is your album due out Johnny? And why is there 7 songs on it?
JJ: The album will be released to iTunes by the end of July. Well the project started as a “6-pack” like what Blake Shelton has recently made popular. But then a good friend and co-writer Cal Phillips passed away and I really wanted to honor him by putting a live version of a song we wrote together on the project. And so it became a “7-pack” I suppose. (Johnny laughs)
JM: Where can fans download your music at?
JJ: The best place for most folks would be iTunes. You can download “Blue Collar Man” at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/blue-collar-man/id381245787
JM: Thanks for your time, Johnny
JJ: Thank you, and thank you fans for sticking by me all these years. This one’s for you.
