Joey Hendricks Shares the Story Behind the Song “Hollywood”

Back in March Joey Hendricks released his debut EP, Between the Clouds, which features his song “Hollywood.”

Joey says that the music on the EP actually influenced the project’s title, “I named the EP ‘Between The Clouds’ because writing these songs have been little moments of clarity and light in between a lot of confusion and anxiety that I’ve dealt with over the years.”

Joey shares the story behind his song, “Hollywood.”

He also adds, “I hope that people love the song as much as I do. I think if you’ve ever been in love or are in love you can relate to it. So grab your special someone, turn it up loud and scream it at the top of your lungs.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
