NASHVILLE, TN – (March 27, 2013) – Songwriters Hall of Fame member John Oates has released the new single Stand Strong from his upcoming GOOD ROAD TO FOLLOW project. The single, which is available on iTunes, was recently featured as the theme song for ESPN2’s telecast of the NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.”It’s about getting people to capture the moment, capture their attention and getting them to respond to it,” said Oates of his forthcoming project.

“Almost every song is done with a different producer and a different co-writer, so I get to step into the worlds of other people. Some people I’ve worked with in the past, some people I’ve never met.”

The GOOD ROAD TO FOLLOW project is a journey through John’s musical life with songs spanning several different genres and styles. Rather than a traditional full album release, Oates will be releasing a new single every month beginning in June. Fans can visit for free download of exclusive acoustic tracks from Oates
