You Made Me Stronger

  • "CARRY ME" HAS BEEN LAUNCHED TO RADIO

    CARRY ME, the latest radio single release from THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT, is the catchiest song from the album, YOU MADE ME STRONGER.

    It follows on from our number one hit single from the same album entitled FIFTY BUCKS AND A CASE OF BEER.

    This country Gospel song starts out hot from the gates with a banjo leading into quickly-paced power chords.

    It’s about a man in need of a helping hand, a man begging the Lord for help: “Carry me, Carry me / down to the river where my soul will be redeemed."

    Simply put, it’s a feel good tune at its finest that has the heart pounding from the word go!
