Holliday native Luke Robin-
son is taking off with his musi-
cal career. Recently releasing
his new album Swerve, Rob-
inson is traveling across Texas
promoting his new album and
song ‘Ship Faced.’ Swerve
contains 16 songs, 12 of which
Robinson co-wrote; the album
that has been in the making for
four years now.
The single ‘Ship-Faced,’ has
been out on radio in Texas for
just two weeks. At the time of
the interview, it was only lack-
ing 50 spins from going on the
charts. You can view the video
and purchase the album on
is now available on itunes.com
and amazon, com.
Robinson has spent several
years in Nashville developing
his song writing skills and his
own sound. He has just begun
his radio tour traveling out west
to Stephenville, San Angelo,
Sweet Water, Big Springs, and
Robinson has also release his
first professional quality video
‘Ship Faced’ which can be
found Robinson said, “I am re-
ally proud of the video and song.
It’s a good summer anthem and
I think the timing for releasing
it was just perfect as people in
Texas got out on the lake or cel-
ebrated Memorial Day. “
Robinson said, “I am so very
proud to be releasing it in Texas.
This is not a back- up plan. This
is it. I’m a native Texan and there
are a lot of great writers and
musical artists in Texas. This
has been a great adventure and
the people I’ve met are great. I
wouldn’t trade it for anything. I
got so much experience in Nash-
ville just with writing and mar-
ketability, being unique yet true
to myself while having it appeal
to as many as possible.”
When asked about the possibil-
ity of ‘Ship Faced’ being picked
up by a Nashville label, Robin-
son responded, “I feel like there
is an opportunity that a national
act like a Luke Bryan could pick
it up and put it out next summer.
Just because a song has been in
Texas, there are still 49 other
states. So there is a real good
possibility for someone to pick
it up and put it out again and
go nation-wide. That happens
often. Or, a label could hear the
video, like it and pick me up to
put it out nationally.
Regardless, Robinson is proud
of his Texas roots and being a
part of the great Texas music
Robinson said that locally,
94.9 Outlaw is playing Ship-
Faced. He states that the way to
get it heard more is to call and
request that they play the song.
The more requests they have,
the more it will be played.
Robinson said, “94.9 Outlaw
has supported me so much, even
back from my last album when
I was 17. James Cook Program
Director and Big Jim Russell
are such a great support group.
They are glad to have my new
music so they could play some
Luke Robinson some more.”
Archer County has a chance
to hear Luke Robinson and his
band on June 20th at Texas
Night Life for the Internet Blast
party for Ship-Faced. Robin-
son and his band will play three
one hour sets, and want you to
