After months of anticipation, Blues Guitar Unleashed founder Griff Hamlin has released the debut album, I’ll Drink To That, from his new group, Griff Hamlin and the Single Barrel Blues Band. Featuring 10 original songs, Griff’s fiery guitar work, and powerful horn arrangements by Nashville veteran, Tim Akers, the record navigates effortlessly through traditional slow blues and modern blues/rock.

And with over 30,000 Facebook Followers and over 75,000 YouTube followers, it’s no surprise that I’ll Drink To That hit #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart within hours of its release, and debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart the following week.
