AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce that Collective Evolution client Dennis Ledbetter’s new single “Open A Vein” has debuted in the #93 position on the Texas Regional Report this week!

The first radio single from Dennis Ledbetter’s sophomore album “Open A Vein” is a tribute to the late, great, legendary songwriter, Guy Clark, who passed away on May 17, 2016.  In the lyrics someone asks, “Mr. Clark, where do your songs come from?”  After a contemplative moment, the reply comes: “It’s easy son.  You just sit down, tune up your guitar, and open a vein.”

"Open a Vein was written by my friend, Martin Flanagan," explains Dennis Ledbetter. "The lyrics exemplify the genius and simplicity that defined Guy Clark.  We were jamming on the back porch swapping tunes about 4 years ago when I first heard these lyrics.  I knew immediately that I wanted to record the song."

Ed Spacek from The Spacek Company is handling radio promotions for this   single.

"I am so pleased to be working with Dennis Ledbetter on his new single OPEN A VEIN," says Ed Spacek. "The Spacek Company.  Dennis delivers a masterful  performance on this powerful anthem that speaks to the core of what country music is about."
