Ladies, do you like the kind of love song that says you are everything that your guy needs? Guys, want to find a song that will absolutely melt your lady when you play it for her? Chad Sullins & the Last Call Coalition have just released the song for you both.
Earlier this week the band launched a grass roots campaign release of their newest single "Only Girl" from their 2012 album Incommunicado. Tired of waiting for the powers behind the scene to put it into rotation the band took charge and pushed forward. With what they called "help from friends in radio and one badass friend" they are right now promoting "Only Girl" to dang near every radio station on both sides of the Red River line.
The song itself is amazing. It puts that old "you're the sun and the stars" love song stuff in terms that regular folks like you and I can actually relate to. See for yourself...
"She doesn't know what she does, when she does what she does to me..." It isn't cheesy. It isn't overly dramatic. I get that.
"I love the look in her eyes, night after night, when I walk in... And I hate to see her cry, when the fault is all mine. It's the ultimate sin..." The good and the bad. That's real. This is a love song from an everyday kinda guy to his only girl.
So start calling up your local stations and requesting "Only Girl" now. Support the music that tells your story. Support the bands that are doing it without major backing and going at it on their own. I can promise you, one listen and you will get it. You simply can't not love this song. And when you love this song, make sure you check out the band's website and Facebook for more.

The destruction is massive and resulted in 6 fatalities and an enumerable amount of injuries. Currently there are still 7 people of an original 14 unaccounted for.

The line up has gone from the original 3 of Mike Ryan, Phil Hamilton and The Rankin Twins to no less than 10 more performers set to appear Sunday. The day of music will be in benefit for our neighbors who suffered and lost so much to these powerful storms. The Red Cross is asking that only cash or check donations be made at this time.
