(EBM) On his upcoming album White Buffalo, due April 7, fast-rising country artist Ian Munsick details the people and places, from the Rocky Mountains to Music City, that have influenced his story.
His new track, penned alongside Adam James and Ben Simonetti, "Little Man" is an ode to his son - to the simple virtue and wholesome integrity of a child - and, ultimately, a reflection on the kind of man Munsick has grown up to be.
"The best songs are the ones inspired by life-changing events," Munsick shares. "First love, true love, heartbreak, death, birth... as a songwriter, these monumental experiences continue to bring out the best music in me. Becoming a father is no exception. My life changed forever when Crawford came into this world. Suddenly, nothing was more important. Snow cones, Tonka trucks and sleepless nights began to take over my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm a better man because of my little man."
"Little Man" is one of 18 tracks on Munsick's robust sophomore album White Buffalo (pre-order HERE). The forthcoming project, which comes three years after his critically acclaimed debut Coyote Cry, is an ode to his homeland and serves as a raw, untamed depiction of the American West. White Buffalo has already yielded standout duet "Long Live Cowgirls" with two-time CMA Award winner Cody Johnson. "Long Live Cowgirls" has topped SiriusXM The Highway's Hot 30 Countdown and has accumulated upwards of 85 million global streams. Other fan-favorite pre-release tracks include "Dig" (listen HERE) and "River Run" (listen HERE).
After a brief vocal rest, Munsick continues to travel the nation on his headlining Long Live Cowgirls Tour. The run features Ashland Craft, with Ned LeDoux, The Munsick Boys, Ryan Charles and 49 Winchester announced as special guests on select dates. He will also hit Stagecoach Festival on April 28 before heading to Nashville, TN for his sold-out, headlining debut at the world-famous Ryman Auditorium on May 16.
