Writing, Traveling and 500 Songs for Kids

I've been playing, traveling, writing and meeting folks...very busy and haven't had much time to write in the ol' blog. So I'm catching up today! Looks like we are going to be finishing the entire record before too long. I'm excited about the new songs and going back into the studio with Jeff Tomei! Also, I wanted to let you know about a great event and cause, 500 Songs for Kids/ It's a non-profit organization that reaches out to sick kids through music. Songs For Kids sponsors performances for kids in their hospitals and hospital rooms even. So anyway, I'll be participating in 500 songs for kids which is a countdown of the 500 most passionate songs performed by musicians from all around Georgia. I'll be performing, "Summer of 69" by Bryan Adams on May 2nd at Smith's Olde Bar. See ya there!

Living Room Tour...Thriving Ivory...I'm Beat!!!

Well, I have been so busy I've hardly had time to write! The Atlanta LRT was great! About 50 folks showed up! Then it was off to Mobile to play for a few days before a SMALL but much needed break. Then Friday I was at Q107.3 promoting my single "Lay Me Down" and the Thriving Ivory show! Friday night it was to Atlanta to play at Smith's Olde Bar and then Saturday morning to Nashville to write with some guys for the weekend...Then back late Sunday night before my show as the opening act for Thriving Ivory on Monday night at Oxygen in Columbus, GA...(following this?) So needless to say, it's been quite a week (plus a few days!) I'm worn out!!!

Awesome First Week of the Living Room Tour!!!

This past week was the first week of the Living Room Tour! I played in Columbus, GA, Auburn, AL, Troy, AL and Lake Charles, LA. I had an awesome time meeting new fans and playing for them. I could not believe just how many folks showed up! In Troy there were so many folks we had to relocate to a bar/restaurant to have room for everyone. In Auburn it was a flat out party and in Lake Charles some of the most hospitable folks I've met! Thanks to everyone!

The Ryan Hamner Stimulus Package

I honestly hate's like a train wreck, you can't help but watch (or is that Joaquin Phoenix?) Anyway, I was really hoping it would NOT come to this, BUT with all of these politicians that just can't seem to get their sh-t together. All of those guys that can't pay their taxes but still demand we pay up so that they can fly in their private planes and be treated like big babies, well I'm going to have to do it! Today I'm proposing the Ryan Hamner Stimulation Package!

It's a very simple plan!...and one that gives you options! No tax increases to save rats in California or for research on those same rats to see how they respond to Viagra...none of that BS! My plan is short, and well under 1,000 pages. Right around 999 pages shorter!

Plan A
Take your credit card and download the new Ryan Hamner EP for just $5.94 on itunes,, Rhapsody or emusic. (Stimulate your ears and the economy all at once!)

Plan B
Take your credit card and download any of the songs off of the new Ryan Hamner EP for just 99 cents. (This is for those folks that are really in need of some stimulation their selves…not to be confused with self stimulation!)

Plan C
Take your credit card and buy the CD on (Stimulation that will arrive to you in your mailbox…so this means that you stimulated your ears, the USPS bank account and mine just a little.)

Plan D
Now this is the best! Come out to a live show! Buy a drink or two (economic stimulation at it's best), bring a friend or meet someone and buy them a drink (oh man, can you feel the stimulation?…This is stimulation that actually may lead to other forms of stimulation!) buy a Ryan Hamner CD (even MORE economic stimulation!) Then just kick back and listen to some live original music and if you are lucky, maybe you'll have someone for after-show stimulation!
