Kip Moore Announces SLOWHEART Track List with SWM Cut

Kip Moore has announced the track listing for his upcoming album, Slowheart.  Included is the song “The Bull” written by Still Working Music Writer Jon Randall with Luke Dick.

“…For the first time, Moore chose two outside songs for Slowheart. One is ‘The Bull,’ written by Jon Randall and Luke Dick around percussive plucks of guitar. Hanging out one day, the eccentric lyricist Dick mentioned to Moore that he’d like to play him a new track he’d just finished, and he decided to cut it instantly…’That’s my song,’ says Moore.”

Exclusive: Songwriter Tommy Lee James Celebrates 25 Years, Preps ‘The Wontons’ Release

After 25 years of success writing hit songs for the industry’s most dazzling vocalists including Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Reba, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, and Ronnie Dunn, Still Working Music writer Tommy Lee James is set to release his own album.

On April 14, Tommy Lee James will release his album The Wontons, with the album title taken from the name of a fictitious band his daughter created. James played nearly all the instruments on the album (with the exception of drums), sang all vocals, and wrote all of the songs for the album, which he describes as “early ‘80s, jangly guitar, garage pop.”

He recorded the album over a six-month period at Roy Orbison Jr.’s home studio, and says the process “brought me back to the love of music.”
