Guitarist/singer-songwriter/producer Ricky Byrd releases the second single from his album “Sobering Times” today, March 19.
Following the release of first single “Together,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer presents his second single “I Come Back Stronger.”
Continuing Byrd’s journey as a recovery troubadour, “I Come Back Stronger,” co-written with Richie Supa, spreads a message of hope and resilience to those who struggle with addiction and substance abuse.
“It’s about the lessons life puts in front of us at every turn,” Byrd said in a prepared statement. “Whether we are willing to learn from them is the big question. I believe we can learn way more from our failures than our successes. So in the words of Mr. [Frank] Sinatra … pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.”
As Byrd says, “with music and lyrics we press on and pass it on….”
“Sobering Times” will be released on April 9 via BFD/The Orchard.
