Ty Stone goes out in style

– Ty Stone released his debut single American Style
to country radio today, July 11. The song is currently available at all digital retailers and is the title track for the Detroit natives Top Dog/Atlantic Records debut, executive produced by close pal Kid Rock.
Written by Stone and Marlon Young, the song is an overtly autobiographical song, which riffs on actual family as well as the extended one that makes up the American community. Its the true story of exactly what was going on, said Stone. I feel like Im telling the story of my father sometimes, because he was that steel mill worker at a plant that shut its doors for good one morning. Hes 62 years old now, still working at Chrysler, even after they took him away from being a machine repairman and put him back on the motor line at 60.
Kid Rock took him out as an opening act on two arena tours, the latest of which was last spring. He will be hitting the road again this summer.
