Paragraph Description

Easterling's career has been full of chart-topping songs including cuts with Dierks Bentley, Joe Diffie, Billy Joe Royal, Paul Thorn, Neal McCoy, Sons of the Desert, Robby Hecht and others but these days, Easterling is embracing the life of a troubadour, focusing his energy on bringing his music and his stories directly to his audience. His new collection of songs, Fro Where I Stand, is due out July 29th, 2022  T

Wyatt is a master storyteller and nowhere is this more apparent than on his new album From Where I Stand out July 29th, 2022. This album is perhaps a new blah, blah, blah allowing this batch of songs room to be what they need to be from the up-tempo Throw Caution To The Wind to the intimate lament Love Says It Best in memory of a close friend. As an artful observer o the world around him Wyatt shares his view of  life in such a way we can all relate. With his smooth vocals and gritty lyrics, punctuated by intricate guitar work, Wyatt knows his way around a song and how to deliver it.  

Divining Rod

In the tradition of the great American

storytellers, Easterling sings of the struggles,

the resilience, perseverance, and courage

of the human spirit in Stumbling Towards

The Light, Scars and Don't Cry For Me.

Easterling accomplishes this without being preachy or judgmental, but rather from the eyes of a fellow traveler.

Wyatt first arrived in Nashville as a folk singer/songwriter on the verge of signing with CBS Record when Sony acquired the label, and the deal fell through. Undeterred, he signed on as a writer with a new publishing company opened by former CBS label head Rick Blackburn.

 

After a couple of years there, Blackburn brought Wyatt on as head of A&R at Atlantic Records where Wyatt signed some of country music’s biggest names including John Michael Montgomery, Tracy Lawrence, Michael Johnson, and Neal McCoy. He also began working as a producer, guiding Montgomery’s debut album Life’s A Dance to an impressive three million copies sold.

 

After Atlantic, Wyatt opened Bugle Publishing Group with partner Miles Copeland, where he signed a number of artists, most notably Keith Urban and Paul Thorn. At Bugle, Wyatt co-produced Thorn’s debut album Hammer and Nail and got the future superstar Urban his first record deal with his production.

 

During that period, Wyatt and Miles had the inventive idea to turn a chateau in the south of France into a writers’ den they called “The Castle” where they began pairing their Nashville songwriters with big-name artists Carole King, Cher, Peter Frampton and Olivia Newton-John. In time, Wyatt was ready to move on from the publishing world, and he signed as a writer with DreamWorks Publishing, API and EMI where he had numerous songs recorded by the likes of Dierks Bentley and Joe Diffie, including the gorgeous title track from Bentley’s album Modern Day Drifter.

Today Wyatt is setting the stage for the release of his 4th album From Where I Stand scheduled for a July, 29th 2022 street date.
