From Rowdy To Sentimental, Tender To Towering, Disc Available
For Pre-Order Now
Nashville, TN -- Singer/songwriter Jimmy Charles’ debut EP, HARD WAY TO GO, is set for December 7 release. Charles wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs withpartners whose credits range from cuts by Country legends (Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis) to young guns (Chris Cagle, Hunter Hayes, Eli Young Band). The disc includes the previously-released “Superman” and his current single, “I Am Not Alone.” His music is available to radio via Play MPE and AirPlay Direct and music lovers can find “I Am Not Alone” now on iTunes, Amazon and other popular e-tailers.
Fans eager to hear more will thrill to this seven-song outing.Six of the tracks were helmed by respected producer Paul David (CeCe Winans, Andre Crouch, Jonny Lang) and recorded at Ocean Way studio in Nashville with some of Music City’s hottest pickers. “I Am Not Alone” was produced by Grammy Award-winner Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell (Rod Stewart, Al Green, John Mayer) and recorded at the famous Royal Studios Memphis.
From rowdy to sweetly sentimental, from tender to towering, Jimmy’s latest music shows why his popularity has grown from year to year and from show to show.
HARD WAY TO GO kicks off with shredding guitars and a pounding bass and drum line set the stage for a rocking ode to paradise on “Blue Spaces.” The tempo and feel change dramatically with Jimmy’s emotive vocal and the tender “home is where the heart is” message of “She’s Where I Belong.” Charles fires it up to tell of the challenges he’s faced while chasing his dream with “Rollin’ On,” a new Southern Rock classic ala Lynyrd Skynyrd that highlights edgy guitar riffs and a vamping chorus. Tasteful acoustic guitar, mandolin and Jimmy’s raw vocal vulnerability shine through on the whisper-soft “God And A Woman,” which conveys the amazing grace found in both love and faith. The tune is a perfect segue to “Superman,” which was written specifically for ZERO Cancer, a support organization. A perennial fan favorite due to Jimmy’s powerful performance and his work as the organization’s national spokesman, the production perfectly mirrors the dramatic highs and lows found in the fight against cancer.
“I Am Not Alone” is another purpose-written song about battling this disease. An anthem-like rendering, it shows Jimmy’s dedication to cancer awareness, prevention, and aid. The EP closes with the title track, “Hard Way To Go,” a song that takes the Maryland native to a “different place” every time he sings it. “This is raw and true and deep,” he says. “It’s about addiction; about not giving up.” The track opens with an echoing, acoustic guitar and the lyric is stark. The vocal is a triumph; need, hopelessness, faith, and forgiveness are all conveyed here, and it is a poignant close to this project.
“If my music helps just one person get through their hard times, then I’ll be happy,” Jimmy says. “People face struggles in this life, and I hope they know they’re not alone. People do want to reach out and give back.”
Giving back is something Jimmy has been doing since joining Zero Cancer as a spokesman in 2014, and he expanded his outreach with the formation this year of his own nonprofit, #IAMNOTALONE. The EP is the culmination of two years of writing and honing his craft and Jimmy is excited to share it with the world. “I’ve come a long way since American Idol and Nashville Star,” says the laid-back vocalist. “I had a blast making this record and I hope everyone who hears it takes something positive away from it. That’s part of my message – and I want to share it.”
1) Blue Spaces (J. Charles, L. Wilbanks, B. DiLuigi)
2) She’s Where I Belong (J. Charles, M. Bollea Rowe, T. Castellano)
3) Rollin’ On (J. Charles, K. Bergsnes)
4) God and a Woman (J. Charles, C.J. Garton)

My Pet & Me Guide to Disaster PAWparedness
What Your Pet Needs YOU to Know to Save You Both
“Whether the wind blows, the ground shakes, the flames rise or snow and water fall from the skies, YOU must be prepared for your pet’s sake!” says Denise Fleck aka The Pet Safety Crusader™. “Disasters aren’t always on a regional scale. Power could go out on just your street or in only your building. A tree could fall on your roof or a water pipe could break in your home alone. Even without your neighbors being affected, your household of two-legged, four-legged, feathered, finned or scaled family members could be in distress.”
In “The Pet Safety Crusader’s My Pet & Me Guide to Disaster PAWparedness,” Fleck, who has personally instructed closed to 20,000 humans in animal life-saving skills and millions more on national TV segments, lays out the steps your pets need YOU to know to be READY, REACT and then RECOVER. “Training, supplies, a positive mental attitude and a plan can make all the difference,” she says. In addition to preparedness tips for humans and their animal companions, the author provides templates for your family's emergency plan, what to have on hand and skills to possess, suggestions for specific disasters ranging from earthquakes, hurricanes & chemical disasters to tsunamis, power outages and civil unrest. The book concludes with a comprehensive manual covering basic first-aid – should the worst happen – for those who walk on two-legs, four paws or hooves, fly, swim or crawl.
DENISE FLECK advised the Department of Homeland Security on their K9 Border Patrol First-Aid Program and drafted the Animal Emergency Plan for the City of Burbank, California. She has been twice-named a finalist as Pet Industry’s Woman of the Year, authored ten books (“The Pet Safety Bible” coming this June) and developed a line of pet first aid kits. Fleck recently relocated from Los Angeles to Atlanta where she resides with her husband Paul and their canine pack. Learn more at www.PetSafetyCrusader.com.
Available on Amazon or with other items at www.PetSafetyCrusader.com.
Denise covers an extensive amount of valuable information and the organized format and easy-to-understand “ready, react, recover” steps make it a resource that all pet owners can implement. The inclusion of the first-aid basics is a real bonus. Denise has, yet again, written a must-have title for every pet owner’s bookshelf!
--Beth Stultz, Vice-President, Marketing & Operations, PET SITTERS INTERNATIONAL
A must-have for every pet parent, charity and government agency! Denise's creative and insightful PAWparedness is stellar and spot-on. Buy two - keep one at home and the other in the car.
--Lynn Molnar, Founder
You may think you understand all you need to know about pet safety, however, your eyes will be opened after reading "My Pet & Me Guide to Disaster PAWparedness" by Denise Fleck. This is a book to read, relish, and USE! I immediately downloaded a suggested AP on my phone, have printed the cards to carry in my wallet and feel so much better about how my pets will survive during and especially after, a disaster. Denise is an amazing expert on all things pet safety and this volume is her best yet. They say it's not IF a disaster happens, but WHEN. Read this book now so you & your pets are safe. I'm so glad I read it and I know you’ll love it too!

THE REVOLUTION IS MEOW
From Francesco Marciuliano, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book
I Could Pee on This, comes the political cat book today’s felines (read: humans) so
desperately need. Written in the style of free-verse poetry, CLAW THE SYSTEM
(October 2018, $12.99) echoes the fears, frustrations, and concerns conjured by
today’s political climate through the mouths and typing paws of cats.
Watch the uprising unfold through anthems such as “I Need This To Stop,”
“What Do I Do with My Anger,” “How Can You Sleep?” and “A New Dawn.” Show
support for your feline friends and try to understand why they’re so spitting mad.
Wise beyond their appearance, these cats dauntlessly articulate their dread, their
anger, and their resolve, imploring humans everywhere to rise up with them.
Ultimately, CLAW THE SYSTEM is a book of action by authors who never doubt
themselves, never question their belief in what is just, and never for a moment
consider that you have a good sense of interior design as they bring down the
living room curtains.
