Lenny Cooper Releasing ‘The Grind’
Average Joes artist Lenny Cooper is releasing his third studio album.
'The Grind' will be available on Aug. 26, and include collaborations with Bucky Covington, Colt Ford, Bubba Sparxxx, former ‘American Idol‘ contestant Sarah Ross, Tyler Wood from Discovery’s hit reality series ‘Moonshiners,' and several more.
“This album is a game changer for me,” Cooper says. “I’m proud of 'The Grind' and really think the fans are going to love it. I can’t wait to play the new songs on the road!”
Cooper rose to fame thanks to a YouTube video he posted of his song, 'Mud Digger,' which quickly earned more than two million views.
"My friends knew I liked to write music; it was kind of my hobby then, so they asked me if I would write a song about going muddin'," he explains. "I went home that night and wrote it and recorded it and went back the next day and gave them about five CDs that I burned. They all loved it. I ended up sticking it on YouTube and tagged Colt Ford on the video. In four to six months, it went over two million views."
The North Carolina native gave The Boot an exclusive look at the trailer to the video for his first single from the album, 'Lights On.' Watch the trailer here.
