Taken from the upcoming album ‘I Am Not Cool‘ (out on State Fair Records on August 20th), this upbeat duet with Carrie Norwood finds the pair exchanging “Dear John” letters.  It’s a sassy take on the form, with great lyrical hooks – who could resist listening on after hearing “I hope this letter finds you well but I need some time to myself…PS: here are my regrets” ?  Having reeled you in the Dallas based singer-songwriter makes the stay more than worth the while.

Chris told us this about the song “This is a classic Chris and Carrie Norwood duet.  It’s definitely a love song, but it’s a 10-year marriage kind of love song. ‘Cause your heart breaks harder over someone you sleep next to every night.  And in the end, you realize ‘I hate when we’re apart.‘”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
