“You Can’t Slow The River Down” is an uplifting tale of hope, encouraging folks to value every piece of their human experience. You can’t slow the river down or turn back the tide, or shift the wind’s direction, no matter how you try. Life happens while you live it. Live it up until you die. The song is the fourth release off of Uncommon Sky, his third album as a solo artist.
