John Dennis – They Tell Me It’s Time [Video Premiere]

John Dennis tells his own story of hope, healing, and rebirth with this summer’s Second Wind, the sophomore album from the young Americana musician. The album, set to release July 28th, finds Dennis sharpening his mix of folk, southern soul, and stripped-down country. It’s a warm album, punctuated by swells of pedal steel and swirls of B3 organ. At the center of the sound is Dennis himself: a clear-headed singer, songwriter, and storyteller who’s coming to terms with the tragedy that sent him spiraling into a period of depression and addiction.

 The first single from the album “Til The Morning” premiered on American Songwriter last week and CMchatLive is excited to premiere the video to his second single, “They Tell Me It’s Time.”  John’s songwriting is raw yet relatable–we’re highly anticipating his album, released July 28 on Rainfeather Records

“‘Til the Morning’ began as an attempt to write a lullaby for a friend of mine who was struggling with depression and with several of life’s bad breaks all happening on top of each other—as they are so apt to do,” Dennis explains. “Musically, it draws from traditional Irish and Scottish folk music, specifically the 18th century melody ‘The Caledonian Hunts Delight,’ which was used by Robert Burns as a setting for his poem ‘Ye Banks and Braes.’”

 The first single from the album “Til The Morning” premiered on American Songwriter last week and we’d love CM Chat Live to premiere the video to his second single, “They Tell Me It’s Time” (with an interview if you’d like).  John’s songwriting is raw yet relatable–we’re highly anticipating his album, released July 28 on Rainfeather Records.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
