Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver Bring A Little More

"Life To My Days" With New Single

Track Premieres On THE BOOT Today

 

Nashville, TN (July 21, 2017) - Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver bring a little more "Life To My Days" with the first radio release from their upcoming Mountain Home Music Company project, LIFE IS A STORY, due out August 25.  Popular online destination The Boot will premiere the song today; fans can pre-order the digital album release HERE and receive "Life To My Days" as an instant "grat-track."  Radio can access the single now via AirPlay Direct

The uplifting message and rolling melody combine to showcase the timeless style of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.  The band's nuanced ability and versatility is legendary, and Eli Johnston takes the lead vocal on "Life"-  and owns it.  Three top tunesmiths wrote the compelling song: Jerry Salley (2003 SESAC Songwriter of the Year and writer behind hits for Reba, Brad Paisley, Rhonda Vincent and more), Lee Black (prominent Southern Gospel writer and multiple Dove Award nominee) and Devin McGlamery (Dove Award Winner, successful singer/songwriter and lead vocalist for Ernie Haase & Signature Sound). 

Doyle chats about single 

The song resonates with positivity as the protagonist vows to dedicate himself to giving more to each day instead of focusing on the limitations of life:

 

So if I'm one of those travelers whose journey gets cut short

And leave the ones I leave behind, wishing I had more time

All I can say is I can't add more days to my life

So I'll add more life to my days (Salley, Lee, McGlamery)

 

The tune's message immediately grabbed Doyle's attention.  "I reached out to Jerry as soon as we started looking for songs for this project," Lawson notes.  "He's been a favorite writer of mine for years, and a good friend.  When I heard this, it really hit home for me.  It's certainly good advice for us all." 

For writer Salley, having DLQ record the song meant a lot.  "As soon as we finished this song, my first thought was about how my friend, Doyle, is always moving ahead, never slowing down, adding 'life' to every single day," he recalls.  "He was the first artist to hear the song, and he loved it.  As writers, we couldn't have asked for a better interpretation of the song," Jerry adds.  "It almost sounds like it was written for Eli's voice ... he sings it perfectly."

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
