On March 28, 2013, country singer, songwriter and Broken Bow recording artist James Wesley chatted via telephone about his newest radio single “Thank a Farmer,” which was co-written by Josh Thompson, Steve Bogard and his fellow label-mate Dustin Lynch
“This song is about who I am. I grew up in a small town in Kansas and everybody was involved in farming. I grew up raising animals on a small farm with a huge garden. I’ve been around farms my entire life,” James shared. “I’ve raised goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks and just about anything that would run and breathe,” he added with a laugh.
According to James, he remarked, “I received a call from the owner of the label who called me about a song that he found. I went over to the studio and we tracked this song 'Thank a Farmer' and it just happened. It was just amazing how well it all came together. Everything happened so quickly and I definitely feel blessed to have this awesome song. I performed it on the Grand Ole Opry this last Saturday for the first time.”
He continued, “The reaction I got from the crowd that night was phenomenal and the stories that people have been tweeting me and telling me on Facebook are incredible and moving. You don’t realize the impact that a song has until the people come up to you and tell you what it has done for them.”
James Wesley’s previous hits “Real” and “Didn’t I” both peaked in Top 25 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Charts and he has shared the stage with such noteworthy female vocalists as Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert. He has over 11,000 fans on Facebook and over 12,400 followers on Twitter.
