The West Texas-raised, Nashville-based singer/songwriter Ryan Culwell ain’t your ordinary troubadour. After dropping out of his successful time at Texas A&M as an economics student to become a musician, he eventually set down the guitar. He then took up a gaggle of jobs, including cow bile cooker, FedEx worker, server, roof salesman, furniture mover, sports radio editor, telemarketer, mail sorter, and fence builder. Now, eight years after stepping aside from his musical career, he’s writing music once again, and he’s taking all he’s learned from his hodgepodge of jobs during his absence from the music scene. In explaining his return, he points out, “When my daughters are grown they deserve a story that doesn’t include the woes of West Texas bars or a recounting of daddy’s touring history to explain why he left their mom. I left the scene so those stories wouldn’t write themselves over the top of me, and it was worth it.” With strong tunes like “I Think I’ll Be Their God”, the video of which you can watch exclusively below, it’s easy to see that the wait was worth it all along.
