Surprise! New 3-song super-single out now on digital platforms everywhere.
It’s been a while since you received my last SongWire, and I owe you an update! Much has changed in my world since the last issue: I’ve gone back to a full-time desk job, we moved home to Texas, and I’m about to release my first solo material as a recording artist, rather than just as a writer.
Can’t Get Over You — Featuring Trysh Hill & Danny Stevens (vocals). Written by Davis Branch, George Irwin & Katie Pappas. Produced by Casey Henderson at Westwood Studios & George Irwin at SongWire Studios in Nashville, TN.

Or one of the writers may be in the midst of experiencing some strong feelings that we talk about and shape into a song.
A Girl That I Used To Know — Featuring Mark Leach (vocals). Written by Davis Branch, George Irwin, Mark Leach & Josh Withenshaw. Produced by Josh Withenshaw at Laughing Heart Studios in Nashville, TN. Cover photo by Shaina Hedlund.
