A wonderful, sentimental song written by Lori McKenna and originally performed by Tim McGraw. Very important message behind the song - to always stay humble and kind, no matter where life takes you and how temptations will try to change the person you truly are. Hope you like my rendition!

A great session from Grand Boulevard during the 30A Songwriter Festival with local girl Kelsey Waters. Raised on 30A, Kelsey grew up in the music saturated orbit of a mother who loved to sing and a father who loved to listen. Kelsey moved to Nashville at twenty and quickly began making inroads on Music Row. She signed a publishing deal with Little Extra Music and now works with some of her songwriting idols, including Lori McKenna ("Girl Crush", "Humble & kind") & Tia Sillers ("I Hope You Dance", "There's Your Trouble", "Blue On Black”), building a growing catalog of songs that are both universal and reflective of her unique slant on life. Working on a new album, she debuted one of her songs entitled "Cool Cars" for us live in the 30A Radio airstream studios. Enjoy today's release of our latest SWF session with Kelsey Waters!

I'm posting this unreleased acoustic demo I recorded back in 2010 in honor of my dear friend Felix McTeigue who I just found out passed away. He wrote this song before I met him and we joked about it and so many other things during our decade of working together in NYC recording studios, where he was a producer and songwriter and I was his hired gun "Ol Spot On" (when I was doing well) or aka "Jeff Ditz" (when I wasn't doing well haha). I learned so much from Felix, as a studio musician but also as a friend. He was like an older brother to me and we were there for each other, riding high in the good times and thru the dark times. This song blew up once country artist Dallas Smith picked it up, setting the stage for Felix's move to Nashville, where he co-wrote songs for Lori McKenna, Florida Georgia Line and many others, in which he was nominated a Grammy for. But he always stayed humble, kind and gave me a ring to talk stupid, to make each other laugh, or if he wanted a web site designed, wiki page built or some guitar tracks to a new artists he was working with. I love that guy and his enormous talent but most of all, his kindness and friendship. This is all so surreal and a shock. Life is too short and precious-be kind to each other. Rest easy, dear Felix. - Jason "Ol Spot On"
