Country-Soul troubadour Drake White delivers moving new track “Life, Love and War,” sharing the hand-me-down wisdom of a country life – at the very moment it all changes… with parenthood. Available today across all streaming and digital platforms, listen to “Life, Love and War” here.

Co-written by White with Erik Dylan and Andy Sheridan, the big-picture ballad captures the epiphany of suddenly seeing your place in the world – a homespun message of hope from a proud father to newborn child that draws from White’s deeply personal experience with his son Hawk following his emotional journey with his wife Alex through IVF.

Co-produced by Jonathan Singleton, the song features an acoustic guitar highlighting White’s tender Southern vocal. All throughout, he explores the thoughts racing through a new dad’s mind, and the genuine wish all parents have for their sons and daughters: To flourish through “Life, Love and War.” 

“My wife and I battled infertility for seven years,” White explains. “When I finally became a father, I was overcome with joy, but I also had fear. Was I enough? Would I be gone too much as a musician? Would I be able to catch his fastball with my left hand? Would I be able to father him as well as my amazing father did for me? So I wrote. I wrote him a letter. I wrote him this song. To all the men out there with their heels in the mud doing the best job they can, happy Father’s Day!”

Life, Love and War - Drake White


Arriving as a new creative chapter unfolds, “Life, Love and War” follows the May release of White’s mischievous do-it-all anthem “10lbs of S#!T,” a track overflowing with lightning-quick lyricism and unbridled Country-Rock joy. 

Both new tracks come on the heels of a big year, as White celebrated the release of ‘The Bridge’ EP in 2023. Featuring seven songs filled with inspiration, love and conviction, each track on ‘The Bridge’ was co-written by White with a cast including Maren Morris, Ryan Hurd, Leslie Satcher and more, combining all-new tracks with reimagined versions of fan favorites and a collaboration with Colbie Caillat.

Recently, the critically acclaimed artist-songwriter wrapped up the first leg of THE BRIDGE TOUR in Detroit, Michigan (5/4), and will continue with nationwide dates scheduled across North Carolina, Kansas, Iowa, his native Alabama and beyond – including select dates with Jamey Johnson. White’s 2024 run is currently set to finish September 14 in Savannah, Tennessee. For complete tour details and ticket information, click here.




A Country-Soul troubadour with charisma to spare, Drake White pours every ounce of his unbridled passion into songs that brighten the spirit. For the latest turn in a dynamic career that’s included scoring four Top 40 hits, White recently kicked off a thrilling new era with his spring 2024 single “10lbs of S#!T” — a fun-loving anthem dedicated to letting the good times roll and living life to the absolute fullest. After getting his start singing in his church’s youth choir, the Alabama native broke onto the scene with his 2013 single “Simple Life” and released his debut album SPARK in 2016. As he gained a devoted following for his soul-stirring songwriting (also showcased on the back-to-back EPs 'Pieces' and 'Stars'), White collapsed on stage due to a hemorrhagic stroke in August 2019, then underwent a series of operations to repair his Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). Once recovered, he returned with his critically acclaimed sophomore LP THE OPTIMYSTIC: a 2022 release praised as an “extremely accomplished album” (American Songwriter) full of songs that “offer hope to anyone dealing with difficulty in their life" (E! News). Maintaining that unstoppable momentum, he next delivered the 2023 EP 'The Bridge,' a powerful seven-song project featuring collaborations with the likes of Maren Morris and Colbie Caillat. Over the years, White has shared the bill with Country superstars like Luke Bryan, Eric Church, and Zac Brown Band and brought his electrifying live show to a number of headline tours, including 2022’s THE OPTIMYSTIC TOUR (with dates in the U.S. and U.K.) and 2024’s THE BRIDGE TOUR (a 24-city nationwide run). With his many accolades including winning the British CMA Awards’ International Song of the Year, landing on Rolling Stone’s 10 Country Artists You Need to Know list, and earning recognition as a GRAMMY Artist of Tomorrow, White is now at work on more new music built on his freewheeling sound and emotionally charged yet quick-witted lyricism.
