Songs About You will be out on June 17th and Eldredge just released the title track. He actually came up with the melody one day and recorded a voice memo of the melody and the lyric "songs about you." Then he took that voice memo to the song written with Ben West and Jessie Jo Dillon. While Eldredge isn't currently living the song's storyline, he shared that he's once been there or experienced something similar in his life to be able to write about it.

 Eldredge confessed that he's experienced love in his life, but he doesn't believe he's ever been in "deep love" before. Phone Screener Abby asked how he's still single when he's "such a catch." Eldredge admitted that he's always put love off to the side and been focused on his music career. In the last few years, Eldredge has been focused on getting to know himself more so at this moment he feels like love is likely coming around the corner for him. Adding that he has been manifesting a deep love. In getting to know himself better, Eldredge enjoys his alone time. He spends time reflecting while on drives or going out into nature.

While manifesting-love, Eldredge is also still looking to the future with his career. He said he would do a Broadway musical for a short run. Back in high school, he was known as the singing guy and the class clown. He never really had just one group of friends, he hung out with several different groups. One of those groups was the theater kids because he was in the school's musicals for Grease to Oklahoma!. Eldredge recalled borrowing his dad's wedding ring for a scene in Grease and when the other actress threw the ring at him, they lost his dad's wedding ring for a while.

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
