Drew McAlister has long been recognised as one of the nation’s premier songwriters and performers. In addition to penning scores of enduring country-rock classics as one half of barnstorming duo McAlister Kemp, and as a solo artist, Drew has composed hundreds of tunes both with and for artists here and in the United States.
Since the release of his last solo album, Coming Your Way, Drew has been working on new music and produced the first single, The Stranger, written with Mike Carr and Travis Collins. The track was produced by Grammy and Emmy award winner, Jamie Tate.
As Drew describes the song, “The nature of the first responders is to show up to a typically bad situation, do their job and in many cases save lives and then they are gone and move on the the next job. In this song I want to say thank you to those who don’t expect to be thanked.”
