“When I first heard the demo for this song, it was a very simple acoustic guitar and vocal arrangement. I was completely blown away by the imagery and knew immediately that I had to cut this song,” said Ken Wilber. “When we finished recording the tracks at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville and started playing it back, I was amazed at how big the production had become. Each instrument and voice really comes together on this song to create something truly special that celebrates everything that is great about the U.S.A.”
“No other song in my professional songwriting career has ever excited me as much, and frustrated me as much, at the same time! It took 10 years of writing, putting it away, coming back to it, to finish ‘If I Was A House.’ When I finally wrote the last verse, shortly before going in the studio, I felt I had something special, but what would Ken think about it,” said Sonny LeMaire. “When he heard my simple work demo he immediately said he had to record it! The arrangement was simple but powerful and Ken’s passionate, heartfelt delivery proved that indeed it was very special and that he had made ‘If I Was A House,’ his signature song! I am extremely proud of the song and proud to have someone like Ken be the voice of this tribute to an America we all love!”
“As a brand new Artist fresh to Nashville, this being his second release Ken is quickly mastering his craft with strength, a wealth of talent and 100% honest enthusiasm,” said Producer Tony Cotrill. “Award Winning Songwriter/Producer Sonny LeMaire beyond the shadow of a doubt brought the production vision to this one. Ken is a pleasure to work with, a true Entertainer and “If I Was A House” will quickly put Ken Wilber on the map!”
Ken’s music is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and download on Google Play, Amazon Music and iTunes. Stay current with Ken Wilber on his website www.kenwilbercountry.com on social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
