Singer-songwriter, Jonathan Freeland releases new single I Left My Heart In Powder Springs available on all streaming platforms.
“The inspiration is pulled directly from my experience growing up in a small town in Georgia and not being able to wait to leave. I wasn’t fond of being “southern” and didn’t feel like I belonged in that type of scene, so I couldn’t wait to leave the south,” explains Jonathan. “It wasn’t until college (in Pittsburgh) / moving to NYC that I realized how much I appreciated all that I had been immersed in during those years, and so this song is somewhat of a reflection on the idea of being able to appreciate that and not being in such a hurry to “escape” everything that doesn’t seem perfect at face value.”
Growing up just outside of Atlanta, GA, Jonathan was raised on the sounds of classic country greats from Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, George Strait, and Charlie Daniels to the popular rock-influenced country radio artists of the 90s, Tim Mcgraw, Travis Tritt, and Garth Brooks. Whether it was long toss before the big game or hauling hay across the pasture, these songs were the soundtrack to his life long before he ever had the desire to pick up a guitar.
