Cam soars with "Redwood Tree" on ‘Good Morning America’

Sharon Ochs/RCA RecordsCam delivered a stunning acoustic performance of her new song "Redwood Tree" on Good Morning America today.

The singer sat down with the morning show for a virtual segment streaming from a music studio. Flanked by guitar and according players who were both wearing bandanas over their faces, Cam offered a stirring, soulful performance of the song inspired by the redwood tree she used to climb in the backyard of her childhood home in California, her voice capturing the poignancy of the lyrics.  

"I wrote this song looking back at my life...just thinking about how I've lived my life and when I was living it for myself and when I was living it for others," she explains. "I think that's something that a lot of us are thinking about right now, how we can try and be better at living for other people."  

"Redwood Tree" will be featured on Cam's highly anticipated sophomore album, which she describes as a "mix of darkness and light." It's expected to be released sometime this year.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out Friday

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
