Tim Lovelace will bring his multi-talents to the forefront with his new DVD/CD combo for StowTown Records, Living In A Coffee World, that releases Sept. 29. The project will showcase Lovelace's comedy, musicianship, award-winning songwriting talent and his motivational speaking skills, which will provide great entertainment for the whole family.
Recorded at a live performance at Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn., the project gives the listener a front row seat to the comedian's unique brand of humor that has kept people around the world laughing and inspired for three decades. Distributed through Sony/Provident Distribution, the project will be available at all retail and digital outlets.
Tim shares his enthusiasm about the project, "I'm overjoyed to have completed my first project with Stowtown Records. They have given me an abundance of creative freedom. I can be my zany self, play different instruments and still share my heart. I hope this project brings laughter to many. I think we can all agree, now more than ever, that we need joy in our lives."
Nate Goble of StowTown Records explains, "When planning for this project, we wanted to showcase Tim's talents as a comedian, musician, and songwriter, while also showing depth as a caring, thoughtful, intellectual artist." Those points are all achieved in this project.
Living In A Coffee World features eleven new musical comedy songs/routines, including the title track which delivers a humorous look at our coffee addictions by sharing what happens when Tim drinks a "freight train espresso." Other highlights are "What Happened to Tomatoes," which spotlights how the flavor of the garden tomato has turned into wet cardboard and "Some Assembly Required" that has parents up all night on Christmas Eve trying to decipher an instruction booklet. The lively "Mercurochrome" tells about how the burning medicine used to be a cure-all for youngsters.
The humorous "Black Belt to Black Eye/Anti Bullying Talk" has a serious underlying message from Lovelace who, as a youngster, was the victim of bullying. The audience might be laughing, but the message hits home on what the impact can be for a young person facing this abuse. Even though Lovelace has achieved great success throughout his career, hosting The Music City Show, performing with such high-profile acts as the Oak Ridge Boys and appearing on the stage of such iconic venues as the Ryman Auditorium, the scars from bullying never completely go away. As a result, Lovelace hopes to bring this problem to the forefront and expand his role as a spokesman for this topic throughout his career.
Lovelace will be touring this fall to promote Living In A Coffee World with dates that cover Oregon, Illinois, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and Indiana.
