Levi Hummon plans debut EP
Monday, March 14, 2016
– Levi Hummon will debut his self-titled five-song EP on April 1.
Hummon, the son of songwriter Marcus Hummon (Dixie Chicks' "Cowboy Take Me Away" and Rascal Flatts' "Bless the Broken Road"), contributed to four of the five tracks on the Jimmy Robbins-release on Valory.
In 2014, Hummon caught the attention of Hall of Fame Songwriter and publisher Desmond Child, which led to to his song "Make It Love" being featured in Two: The Story of Roman & Nero. Hummon also helped write Steven Tyler's current Country single "Red, White and You."
Songs on the EP are:
1. "Life's For Livin'" (Levi Hummon, Matt Jenkins, Jimmy Robbins)
2. "Chain Reaction" (Levi Hummon, Jon Nite, Jimmy Robbins)
3. "Love You Hate You Miss You" (Ryan Hurd, Jimmy Robbins, Laura Veltz)
4. "Guts And Glory" (Levi Hummon, Tom Douglas, Travis Hill)
5. "Window Down Days" (Levi Hummon, Jon Nite, Jimmy Robbins)
Hummmon has been on the road opening shows for Kelsea Ballerini, Sam Hunt, Alabama, Dwight Yoakam, David Nail, Maddie & Tae, Dan + Shay, A Thousand Horses and Cam. This spring Billy Currington will feature Hummon on select dates of the Summer Forever Tour.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
