NEW RELEASE | “Texas Without You” by The Country Duo + Friends


Addiction and mental health issues do not represent the heart of the addict or the depressed. Rather, they speak loudly to a situation that must be met with compassion, connection, and awareness. There is no shame in addiction and mental health instability. It’s hard to know how to help those that are closest to us. Perhaps we can be brave enough to make the mistakes by being willing to have the dialogue. #UseYourVoice #SpeakUp

Kasey Rausch wrote this song after she lost a childhood friend to suicide.
