Happy Thursday friends! I have been scouring for new music lately and was fortunate to fully discover the Pete Scobell Band. I say fully discover, because last year, I was lucky enough to see him during the Patriot Tour. I have a special fondness for Navy SEALS, since I claim one as my cousin! It was an amazing experience to hear some of their stories and just their sheer tenacity.
Pete Scobell is a Navy SEAL, who suffered a traumatic brain injury during one of his tours overseas. While recovering, his doctors encouraged him to play music as a form of therapy. He had a chance encounter with Wynonna Judd, who encouraged his music and was a guiding hand for him to record a full album. The Pete Scobell band’s album Walkin a Wire will be released this Friday. He has tapped into a raw nerve that needed to be filled (in my opinion) in country music. The honesty and raw lyrics make this album a must listen. My fave songs so far are, "Walkin a Wire" and "Disappear". You can buy "Walkin a Wire" here on iTunes. Here is Pete Scoball Band’s video for his single, “Wild”.
I have a signed copy of Walkin a Wire up for grabs for one lucky reader. Leave a comment below why you would love to win the album. There is also a chance to win an awesome Orca Cooler, to enter to win, click here. Have a great Thursday!
