Written and produced by Stone, this good-time anthem has already hit #1 on the New & Active Charts and is rapidly climbing the Billboard charts and has hit Top 50. His unique sound blends the soulful grooves of the Allman Brothers and traditional values of Hank with the rockin' contemporary production of Jason Aldean.  His debut country EP Honky Tonk Superstar, featuring 4 original tracks written and produced by Stone, was released digitally in November 2012.
