The Singing Sportswriter (that's me) has returned with a full-length, original country song. It is a midtempo tune called "Letting Go," written by my friend Alan Cherry of the band, The Fibes. The vocal here is by me, but the song -- lyrics and music -- is all Alan.
Click on Letting Go to hear my version of the song, and let me know what you think. Be honest. I can take it.

Thanks to 790 The Ticket radio and my buddy Dan Le Batard for airing the song in its entirety just past 5 p.m. Tuesday. Click here for the radio performance (with surrounding banter) now posted on YouTube.
Thanks too for the song being plugged in Broward New Times by Bob Norman in his very good blog, The Daily Pulp.
Now, the humbling accolades continue as my version of "Letting Go" is featured No. 1 in today's/ Wednesday's Miami Herald online What the 5! feature -- including mini-reviews by some colleagues. Click here for the What the 5! spot.
This has just a fun little project for me. No, I am not quitting my day job, much as many readers would probably like me to!
