Marty Raybon, releases his third single, A Little Bit Of Living
Award winning artist, Marty Raybon has just released a new single A Little Bit Of Living from his soon to be released album Just Above Water, on Billy Blue Records.
Last Thursday, Marty Raybon’s legendary supergroup, Shenandoah, played to a packed-out Nissan Stadium during the CMA Music Fest. The award-winning vocalist is still considered one of music’s most talented vocalists.
Written by Music Row stalwarts Jessi Alexander, Matt Jenkins and Josh Osborne, this fun, up-tempo song expresses the lyric and sentiment of the song as only the voice of Raybon can deliver.
“A little bit of this, and a little bit of that,
A little bit’ll be the best you ever had.
If you ain’t got a little bit, get you some.
A little bit of living never killed no one”
From the first time I heard it, I knew it was one of those songs that would accent the essence of what truly living is all about. In the world in which we live, there’s always the point made to excel, and that’s a wonderful trait. Life don’t have to always be about that, though. That’s what this song says to me. It’s a song about life and living every minute of it – Marty Raybon.
Marty’s personality is infectious. His voice, simply legendary. The opportunity to work with Marty Raybon and represent his brand of bluegrass music is one of the greatest honors in my career. He never has forgotten, and never will forget, his roots in bluegrass music. Enjoy his latest single, ‘A Little Bit of Living.’ It’s sound and message is vintage Marty Raybon – Jerry Salley.
The accompanying lyric video is coming very soon, and Marty’s new album, Just Above The Water, coming this fall on Billy Blue Records and distributed through New Day and The Orchard (Sony)
