NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Dec. 4, 2015) –  Born and raised at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Hokes Bluff, Alabama, Drake White grew
up scanning his radio dial for anything he could relate to from country
to blues to rock ‘n roll. In the rural south, White’s musical tastes
knew no boundaries, labels or discriminations, a trait that has taken
root in his performance style with Rolling Stone Country observing,
“He doesn’t play music so much as become possessed by it,
shaking, clomping and hopping up on his toes like a cowboy Michael
Jackson. It’s a celebration of his country roots and, really, of being
back in control.” That verve is encapsulated in White’s new single
“Livin’ The Dream,” and it’s a message he knows audiences worldwide need
to hear.

Written by Tom Douglas, Jaren Johnston and Luke Laird, the lyrics for
“Livin’ The Dream” celebrate life, and even though there are struggles
— “Lots of reasons just to give it on up/Leave your soul on the shelf
collecting dust/Live in a world with broken promises/And empty tanks…”
— White reminds us to denounce the negative and celebrate the little

“‘Livin’ The Dream’ is a reminder of how blessed we all are even though,
especially times like now, it may feel like our world is falling apart,
and so, if we can help remind folks to celebrate the little moments,
celebrate life, love and music, then it really does feel like we’re at
least attempting to live up to our objectives musically,” shares White.
“In the past, music has not only been my vehicle for escape but also for
unification, and with this subtle reminder, we’re hoping to give
audiences reprieve if even for three minutes and 11 seconds.”

Produced by Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover, “Livin’ The Dream” brilliantly showcases White’s bluesy twang, a voice the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel dubbed as “…one of the most boisterous and soulful male voices in country music.”

Having performed over 100 shows in 2015 inclusive of tour stops with
Little Big Town and Zac Brown Band, when not on the road White has been
diligently working on his forthcoming album for Dot Records Nashville,
expected for release in 2016.
