Jonathan Singleton & The Grove release debut single

Wednesday, March 18, 2009 – Jonathan Singleton & The Grove just released the lead single Livin' In Paradise from their forthcoming debut album on Universal South. Dann Huff produced.

"At the time when we were writing this song, my wife and I were pretty broke," said Singleton. "This song basically says that it's not the big things, it's the little things that keep you going, that make your paradise."

Jonathan Singleton & The Grove packed the van last week and joined Eric Church's "Young and Wild" tour of 40 clubs in 60 days. The tour will stop in major markets across the country including New York, Chicago, Nashville and Dallas.

Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music.
