Also, a shout out to our friends at Music City Light for donating a few beers to the project and one of their finest for the role of “Johnny”. Good times with good friends. Hope y’all enjoy it!” “A rollicking, rowdy time, Carothers’ “Sinners & Saints” video flashes between party time at a honky-tonk and prayer time in church pews.

Listen Now: Tulsa Red Dirt Artist Jake Flint – Long Road Back Home

Jake Flint - Tulsa Red Dirt

Tulsa Red Dirt Artist Jake Flint Releases Poignant Up Tempo Single “Long Road Back Home” Oklahoma Red Dirt artist Jake Flint has released his sophomore single “Long Road Back Home,” the highly anticipated follow-up to his successful debut release, “Cowtown,” which was well-received by radio and fans alike. “Long Road Back Home,” co-produced by Flint with Red Dirt hit-maker Mike McClure is a lively up tempo song about the excitement of returning to beloved family and friends, and vividly captures the emotional anticipation of going back to your roots. Tulsa-based singer-songwriter Jake Flint is deeply entrenched in the Red Dirt music scene. Following the release of “Cowtown” in late-2017, Flint’s career took a sharp upward swing as his easy going style, quick wit and exceptional performance talents were embraced by the Texas/Red Dirt community of radio programmers and earned him a coveted slot as a featured performer at the recent TRRMA ‘Future Faces Show.’ The recognition and support of radio in building his awareness has given Flint the opportunity to greatly expand his touring base to reach a growing legion of fans. “I am super excited about and very proud of ‘Long Road Back Home,’ Flint states“It is a veritable testimony of the bittersweet conflict of feelings I personally get when leaving the gratifying hard work we put in on the road meeting people and performing and returning to my family and friends, home cookin’ and soft bed that I miss so dearly while away. I can imagine that many different types of people could relate to this feeling. From coming home from a semester away at college, a soldier from a tour of duty, or just someone who lives far away from their childhood home. It’s that feeling you get when you can see the finish line and you just know a big hug from mom and dad, a hot, home cooked meal and an impatient dog at the end of the driveway is eagerly awaiting your arrival.” Watch the Official music video for “Long Road Back Home” at this link:  https://youtu.be/-j0LA-i0VDE Radio programmers can download “Long Road Back Home” at CD Tex: http://www.cdtex.com/broadcast_downloads.html “Long Road Home” is available for purchase at iTunes at this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/long-road-back-home-single/1410540134 For more information about Jake Flint, connect with him online: Website: www.jakeflintmusic.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JakeFlintMusic Twitter: https://twitter.com/JacobDFlint
