The disc has already generated two major hits: his current upbeat U.S. single and nine-week No. 1 international smash “I Like You” (MUSIC ROW No. 56, Power Source Magazine Country Top 75 Chart No. 64), and the compelling “Going Home” (Power Source Magazine Inspirational Country Top 100 Chart No. 42).

Glasmire also enjoyed entertaining the crowds during the 2012 CMA Music Fest Week with performances at Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau Acoustic Stage; BB King’s, Whiskey Bent Saloon and Music City Bar & Grill.
