Fresh off the SiriusXM Outlaw Country presents Jamey Johnson Tour, country music’s ultimate storyteller Erin Enderlin adds yet another page to her budding success story with the release today of her EP Chapter One: Tonight I Don’t Give a Damn. The EP, which takes listeners on a journey through the exquisite and often raw songwriting of Enderlin, is now available for download HERE.
Enderlin shines throughout Chapter One: Tonight I Don’t Give a Damn on the heartbreakingly beautiful “Broken,” the incredibly honest “Till It’s Gone” and the soul-bearing title track.
“I love storytelling and developing characters,” Enderlin recently told The Tennessean shortly before taking the Grand Ole Opry stage for a fifth time on April 23. “I’ve been told I slant to the dark side of life.”
Of course, this unique slant to the Arkansas native’s songwriting is what makes Chapter One: Tonight I Don’t Give a Damn downright irresistible, and continues to follow Enderlin’s drive to create characters that materialize within the lyrics of each of her songs. Chapter One: Tonight I Don’t Give a Damn tells the continuing story of the hurting woman featured in the song “Broken” from her most recent project Whiskeytown Crier.
“For me, it was interesting to think about how her situation was going to affect the rest of her life,” says Enderlin, who will quickly follow the EP with Chapter Two this June as well as both Chapter Three and Chapter Four before the end of the year. The project is a collaboration between Enderlin’s Black Crow Productions and label partner Blaster Records, with management by music industry veteran Marty Winsch.
