Lady A’s Charles Kelley is today releasing his goodbye letter to alcohol, sharing the confessional “As Far As You Could.” Aided by the gift of desperation, Kelley co-wrote the redemptive ballad after a public decision to stop drinking and begin addiction treatment. After an outpouring of support, the next months were filled with reflection, accountability and songwriting, with the powerful “As Far As You Could” marking a turning point in Kelley’s recovery.

“Draccus” embodies what The Motet have concocted with All Day, an album that will retain the infectious grooves arrangements that The Motet have become known for. But by recentering the listening experience around the playing and composition, All Day emphasizes the band’s instrumental mastery molded by two decades of shared musical chemistry.

Bryan Ruby has literally had one ‘Hell of a Year,’ and to celebrate has released a holiday surprise cover song for old and new fans alike. The reflective lyrics and pensive tune were originally recorded and written by Parker McCollum.  “I love this song and I wanted to do this track as a little extra bonus ‘thank you’ to all the folks who  I’ve met out on the road this year,” stated Ruby.
