Good Monday morning and afternoon. I will be adding three songs to the GSOTD post and playlist. All three songs are coming from @jmyers81 and from his playlist that he had shared here in the community. The name of that playlist is called Delton July '21 by jaymyers 1981. Thank you @jmyers81 for sharing your music. Country: Heart On fire by Eric Church. Heart On Fire "'Heart On Fire' was the first song we recorded when we got to North Carolina. I already had pretty much, I wrote this song by myself, but I already had this song on the rails and we were heading down the path of what this was going to be," said Church. "I thought we needed to kind of break the ice and get started on something, you know, we were doing something that was tough to do – writing the song the same day we were recording it. This was the song that was kind of the icebreaker for the whole project, and I credit this song a lot for getting us to where we ended up getting to with the project." Country: 7 Summers by Morgan Wallen. 7 Summers "7 Summers" is a song by American country music singer Morgan Wallen. He first performed a portion of the track on his Instagram, whereafter it was released on August 14, 2020, following its popularity on TikTok. Country: Drive (For Daddy Gene) by Alan Jackson.

What is the main story or is there several stories in your music you are trying to tell through your music? The various story lines in my music are the different experiences I’ve had to live through growing up in a city surrounded by drugs, violence, and crime. It also depicts my lifestyle and the future that I want for myself. Despite my surroundings I still managed to escape by creating music. How does making your music influence you? My music influences me because it helps me stay out of trouble also helps me stimulate my mind and increase my vocabulary. It also influences me because it’s a great way of making revenue. Also you are a great composer and lyricist do you play any instruments? I don’t play any instruments but I used to play the trombone in middle school. Do you have any family members that do music too? My older brother is an artist as well that goes by the name of “Eckotherapper710” and has been rapping before me. Also who taught you how to do this or are you self taught? I was taught by observing my older brothers freestyle and write music.
