Giddy-up friends and bear down on this! When I do country I really like to do country, my environment and all. I’m going to rent myself a cabin with no running water or electricity and lock myself in, with occasional trip to the outhouse, and listen to this song all weekend long, it’s just that good. Country doesn’t have to be your thing to appreciate good music
Out country artist Drake Jensen is back with his brand new album OUTlaw, which features the lead single “When It Hurts Like That.” A video for the single is now up on Drake’s YouTube channel. Produced in Canada by Ottawa’s Jonathan Edwards, OUTlaw is now available for pre-order on Drake’s website before its official release on March 12.
Drake began making his mark on country music with his debut album On My Way to Finding You, which charted at #16 in the European Country Music Association’s top 100. His single “All You Need” achieved top 20 status in France, and the groundbreaking video for “On My Way to Finding You” was awarded by Montreal’s “Fondation Émergence.” Drake was also included in Towleroad.com‘s roundup of “The 50 Most Powerful Coming Outs of 2012.”
Born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, Drake Jensen is a unique figure in the world of country music: a voice for the LGBT community who speaks through his music. Gaining fans who are rediscovering the genre and can now feel included in it, he touches the heart and soul of listeners through his rich, warm voice that tells not only the stories, but conveys deep, sincere emotions. Drake is leading the way, not unlike his idol Garth Brooks, by bringing LGBT fans back to listening to country music.
