Hal Ketchum Releases Comeback Single [AUDIO]
‘I’m the Troubadour’ is set for release on Oct. 7, six years after 2008’s ‘Father Time’ hit stores.
“I just kind of lost my powder for a while,” he tells Billboard. “I just didn’t feel like playing or writing. One day I just said, ‘This is a gift that God has given me, so I better get back to it.'”
Ketchum took a break from the industry five years ago after symptoms related to multiple sclerosis flared up. After focusing on his health for a few years, the singer decided it was time to get back into the music business.
“I started writing a handful of songs while living in a log cabin in Wimberley, Texas. It just evolved from there,” he says. “I’m very happy. It’s an amazing gift to be able to come back this strong. I feel like it’s the best record I’ve ever made.”
