When Brooke and I first started listening to Steve Moakler he was a singer songwriter similar to Dave Barnes, Ben Rector, Andrew Belle + Mat Kearney and we loved listening to him. As his career progressed we noticed that his songs were drifting from the singer/songwriter genre toward the country genre.
At first I was a little nervous because I am not the biggest country music fan and I thought he might be headed in a direction that I didn't like. Then I heard Steel Town and in my best Tom Haverford impression I turned to Brooke and said, "That's doooooope!"
I wanted to share about him on our blog because we love connecting you with inspiring people doing inspiring things and I am inspired by Steve's journey through music from one genre to another, something that is not easy to do.
Here is a really great video highlighting that journey:
