Drake White is a touch of fresh air and has much to celebrate with the release of his debut album, “Spark” on Dot Records. This first effort debuted on the Top Country Albums chart, which is a 12-track labor of love coming from years of hard work and dedication to perfecting his sound.
“Thanks to all of my fans who have supported this release,” said Drake. “To be in the Top 5 with Dolly Parton, Chris Stapleton and Justin Moore, it is surreal.”
Drake shared his passion for music last week with fans while he traveled coast-to-coast as part of his “Flight to Light the Spark” initiative. Beginning in New York City with a performance at the Housing Works Live From Home: Songwriters’ Night as well as a national television performance on ABC’s Good Morning America, the whirlwind trip ended in Joshua Tree, CA where he celebrated 100 Years of US National Parks Service with the Opry National Parks Circle Throwdown performance of his Top 25 hit “Livin’ the Dream.”
In between, he hosted the “Flight to Light the Spark,” a 17-hour trip which stopped in each time zone across the US to highlight this charitable initiative. Those impacted included Friends of Firefighters (New York, NY); Musicians on Call (Denver, CO); North Texas Food Bank in partnership with the Ford Community Fund (Dallas, TX); The Boys & Girls Club (Wichita, KS) and the Western Surfing Association in partnership with Salt Life (Los Angeles). From meeting with brave firefighters, to conducting science experiments with students and visiting our country’s honored war veterans, Drake continues to highlight the spirit of giving.
