Y'all, I've been so dang busy since the last update I haven't taken the time to let y'all know what's goin' on...AND A LOT IS GOIN' ON!!!
I got my first sponsor!!! Gone Country Hats is sponsoring me on their site! I'm SUPPOSED to tell you that they're the best cowboy hat I've ever worn. But I'm not one to be scripted, so what I WILL say about them is...it really IS the best hat I've ever worn!!! I have the Timber Rattler and the Hicktown designs and I love them both! They even let me keep my Redneck Rockstar hat band that my wonderful mother-in-law made for me!

My new album has been distributed to all digital outlets and will be released on Friday, 2.19.21!!!
Preorders should start on Monday, 2.15 on iTunes. Those that do preorder the album will get to download one of the unreleased tracks immediately as a thank you for showin' me your t-t-t-t-t-t-TIPS! (I bet y'all can figure out which song you get to download early by this not-so-subtle hint!)
When you get the album, by what ever medium you use I truly hope you enjoy what me and my team have created for you. If y'all do enjoy it, PLEASE share it with your world!!!

After 2.5 years of writing and 6 months of trying to record an album during the worst pandemic in over 100 years...WE HAVE A FINISHED ALBUM!!!
We're just days away from announcing when it will be turned loose on digital platforms like Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music and the like...but it's being processed as I type this to y'all. Physical copies are getting ready to go into production as well. For now those will be available during live performances. Trust me when I say that y'all wanna come see a show if you haven't already!
Next steps are to start finding avenues to pitch the tunes to Nashville. My Redneck Ways will start spinning on Texas radio on 2-8, so feel free to start requesting it then...and often!!!
Thanks again to everyone that gave their hard earned TIPS money to make this album happen. And a HUGE thanks to my team: Jeremy, George, Owen, Wendy, Sarah, Grace, Linnea, Logan, Steve, Jay, Dan, Wil & Tim. None of this could have came REMOTELY close to what it is without y'all.
Get ready to crank it up and play it loud, y'all!!

Friday, 1-22-21 Sit Here & Drink Beer drops on Spotify y'all!!!
This is the last single before the entire Redneck Rockstar album drops in a few weeks. Over the past two years I have written, cowritten, practiced, polished, hired players WAY better than me and produced something near and dear to my heart.
Please give it a listen and if you think it's good (you will) share it to your world. I want the whole world to hear these songs!
Also, I'd LOVE your feedback on the songs. That's how me and my team make them better with each project!

I gotta tell y'all a secret...
Managing all of my social media by myself is pretty difficult on top of still working for our family business and managing a billion (slight exaggeration) of honey-do projects. That's why I haven't posted any updates since September and I apologize. How about I make it up to y'all with a little bit of GOODe news:
Our album is still underway and it just got some HUGE legs underneath it...in the form of Nashville musicians lending their talents to the project!!!
If you dig Luke Combs, Sara Evans, Dierks Bentley or Brothers Osborne then you'll wanna read on...
Wil Houchens is one of the best and most sought after piano players in Nashville. He tours with Billy Ray Cyrus and has worked with legendary Collin Raye and a pretty popular feller y'all may have heard of...Luke FREAKIN' Combs!!! He is playing piano for us on My Redneck Ways that will hit digital outlets in a couple weeks. We hope to land him for a couple more songs on this album because even though he is one of the best players in the business, he's just a great dude.
Tim Galloway has more stars under his belt than Orion. (Well, Orion only has three so that's not hard to beat, but I digress...) Here's a small list of the artists he's recorded and/or toured with:
Big and Rich
Just a small list...showoff...
And he still made time to track THE MOST amazing guitar track for our single!
Between these two the song has enough firepower to turn heads in Nashville, Texas and beyond. But no...we had to go a step further by adding a fellow Hoosier, Sarah Yingst and her AMAZING fiddle skills as well. Y'all, I can't begin to tell you how spectacular she is. We brought Sarah on for Nobody Like You and we all fell in love with her style of playing. We knew she could land a strong ballad, but could she hang with the big dogs on a honky tonk tune??? Uh, yea! She was the missing puzzle piece to make this bird take flight. She's also just an amazing and humble human and we love having her presence in the studio.
This album will be the absolute best that I can bring to y'all. And by absolute best, I mean the people that have agreed to join in on our project. They're all not just the greatest players, hands down...but they're just the greatest people you'd want to work with.
Get ready, y'all. It's about to get loud.

I have a small solution: Come to my Facebook page and I'll give you a live show!
Head over to facebook.com/mikeygoodemusic every Saturday night at 8 p.m. EDST and I'll put on a show for you, complete with fun videos, collaborations and of course; live music!
One thing this quarantine state of mind has taught us is that even though we can be huggin' we can still be together. I've seen it through Zoom meetings, Facetime, group chats and collaborations with some of my favorite singers and musicians. Head over to my Facebook page to see more!
Remember, EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT you get a free live show from me until we can all get together again!
