A look inside the world of Pat Monahan of the band Train
So ya know
I wrote a blog a week ago and deleted it on accident. Bummed me out so it took till now to try again. Just wanted to wish you all a happy 2013 and let you in on what is happening in our lives, or at least what’s happening with Train.
We have our first song on country radio, Bruises, and we are so excited to have this chance to be on country radio and on CMT(one of my favorite networks). We’ve written county style songs since our beginnings but this is our first stab at entering this new family. We never wanted to try it in an inauthentic way. We loved doing Crossroads with Martina McBride and I hope to do lots more with her in the years to come. And now we are joined by my good friend, Ashley Monroe, who has a new album coming soon. It is an amazing album too. I’m so proud of the great work she’s done.
We also released Mermaid to the Hot AC format of radio. We shot a video for it in the Bahamas and even though I don’t know when it will be ready, I am really excited for you to see it. Plan on seeing some greatness.
We do Leno next week and then head to Hawaii for the pre game Pro Bowl. I shoot an episode of Hawaii 5-0 while I’m there as well. Then we head to New Orleans for a week on The Talk and the VH1 Pepsi Smash. Fun and its in Hawaii(my favorite place on earth).
So there it is. And then of course we head to the UK and the Netherlands in February.
Please be safe and take care of the love you’ve got.
See you soon.
