My buddy Arkansas native and country singer-songwriter Blane Howard has been practicing social distancing like everyone else during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He's been staying busy writing some new music all the while waiting for his first baby to arrive this week. In addition, he just released a new single this morning, "Keep Me Busy," a fun uplifting positive song we could all use right now. However, Blane Howard needs your help on getting the single up the iTunes chart. Fans can help by sharing the posts, sharing the link, or downloading the single via iTunes.

According to his Facebook page here are some thoughts about the single from Blane Howard.

Y'all are the best fans ever, and so many of you have been with me through my entire musical journey. I know this is a long time coming, and even though it's not exactly as planned... I'm thrilled to be able to release one of my new singles... "Keep Me Busy"

I wrote this with my band member and good friend, Mr. Joey Wengerd a couple of years ago. We love to see you all dancing to it at our live shows.

Some of the lyrics...
Feeling, I've been feeling
Like a train running wild
Trying to hold these tracks...

I know many of us are feeling that way and I just want you to know that I'm praying for all of you. I know we are all in different boats but we're rowing in the same waters.

We hope this song will "keep you busy" having fun, dancing with your loved ones, and having some feel-good moments.

Friday the song will release to all of the online stores. I hope you'll take a minute to find it and play it!!
