Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Black makes his entrée into country music after honing his performance and songwriting skills over the past several years. The uptempo track sings the praises of trying to live right and not “like Saturday night was the last one I ever got.”
“I really appreciate songs that are real and raw and speak life’s lessons – I think we’ve all been there in that fight between doing what’s right and doing what’s fun.” said Black. “When I first heard the demo, I played it for my dad and it became a favorite that we played together. I lost my dad to cancer last year suddenly and I knew our song, “Right Church, Wrong Pew,” had to be the first one I cut as an artist. I’m excited to release it in his memory on the one-year anniversary of his passing.”
Black inherited his love of country music from his grandfather, Floyd Black “Junior,” who once played banjo and guitar in Johnny Cash’s band, and from his father, Allen Black, who sang country music and influenced his musical style as a young boy.
