In these difficult days of isolation, social distancing and downright depressing news all around us, substance abuse and self-medication can be the crutch that far too many turn to, to “get by”. We all seem to know someone who has struggled with alcoholism or drug addiction, and country singer-songwriter is no exception. In his new single release, the self-penned “Starting Now,” Lynch tells the true-to-life story of a person’s road to recovery and redemption through Jesus Christ. The single hits radio airwaves this week, with retail release scheduled for May 18th. Pre-sale begins on May 11th. Lynch’s fans can download the single directly from his website, available now.
“The song tells the story of someone overcoming addiction and homelessness by turning his life over to the Lord,” says Lynch. “A lot of us know or are related, to someone in that situation. I know someone who had been an alcoholic from a very young age. It led them to some dark places…a very tumultuous life. I pray that this song can give people, who are struggling or know someone who is some hope. I want to let them know that God can sort it out for them if they just give it to Him.”
