Meet this week’s #FeaturedFriday artist: David Britt

Welcome to this week's #FeaturedFriday.

Meet David Britt. He and I have been chatting on Twitter for a while now and I'm happy to welcome him as this week's #FeaturedFriday artist. 

David is one of those people who you meet who is so talented, both as a songwriter and as a singer, and it makes you wonder why you haven't heard him on the radio. 

I often hear country fans gripe about the state of country music radio and I just shake my head because there are so many people out there who are actually putting out music you want to listen to, you just have to spend a little extra time finding them. David's one of those people: a musician who you could skip the radio waves and buy his music instead.

I don't think you can categorize David's music as one specific type of country music. If you want sort of silly bro-country songs about sexy women and trucks with a little country rap thrown in, listen to Country Flow. You want music that gives thanks to God? Listen to God Was Looking Out For Me. You want a song that walks the line between pop and country? Listen to Sweet Becca Jayde. You want a song to help you get over a break up? Then listen to To Hell With Your Love in the video below. It sounds like a Brantley-Gilbert-penned tune and it's pretty damn good. 

Seriously, folks, if you're done with the radio and all of it's frustrating musical politics, just find some great artists online and support them by purchasing their music. David Britt's music is a great place to start.  

Check out some questions he answered for me after the jump …

Hank Williams Jr. has always been a huge supporter of the military and on New Year's Eve he was honored with the 2013 OTA Patriot Award from Operation Troop Aid to honor that support. 

“I am extremely honored to award Hank Williams Jr. the 2013 Patriot Award,” OTA founder and Executive Director Mark Woods said in a press release when it was announced that Hank would be receiving the award. “His art, legacy of family and spirit of patriotism is exactly why this award exists. He never forgot his roots and why we have the freedom we do in America.”
