Garrett Walker: “No songs about pickup trucks, I write about what matters most”

Garrett Walker is an activist-musician out of Nashville who plays great music, but also tries to be a good person. He says when he is not on stage he is out amongst the "homeless people singing songs". Check out a small excerpt of his "Profile" from his SoundCloud site below, and then under that check out a video of the great song called "My Father's Gun".

Garrett says, "I am an artist through and through. I am a left handed illustrator, designer that writes, creates and sings. I believe in God, Jesus and that the Holy Spirit stays with me every second of every day I live. I always make it a deliberate effort to do the right thing. I find myself helping others more than I should, especially when it comes to those less fortunate. A lot of times on a Friday and/or Saturday night, instead of finding me singing at a bar or event, I can be found sitting around a bunch of homeless people singing songs and just talking about life. I do my best to make sure others know that Jesus loves them, but I do not "Pound the Bible".

No one on this earth is better than I am, and I am no better than anyone else. I don't understand the term "illegal alien". We are ALL God's children and our land is not ours, it is GOD'S! Politics do not concern me, but you do. I may forget what you say or what you do, but I will never forget how you make me feel.

I am extremely sensitive, almost too sensitive. We can never take back a first impression, so I try to make mine a good one. I pray every day for others and my heart truly hurts for those in pain. I believe anger is a choice and that madness starts with sadness. I do write music, but have no songs about Pick-up Trucks, Tractors or my dog. I do have two songs about mama. (I am a Mama's Boy, and damned proud of it). I primarily write about what matters most. Ballplayers make way too much money, I hate guns, I cannot stand people that talk only about themselves." – Garrett Walker
