What is Special About This Song – By Andy Stokes
This song is important to me. When Kashif, the great producer/songwriter, played me the first version of the song ‘I Don’t Give A Damn’. It just got me. I heard and felt so many emotions in the music and the words. It is an intense message – about facing your mistakes and coming to terms with what is really important. He told me ‘…you are going to have to be brave to sing it’. He told me to take it home and make it my own. I sat on it for a while – life got in the way –then I started to sing it at a few shows. People went crazy over it! I mean, I had MEN AND WOMEN chasing me down in the parking lot asking me about it … ‘are you gonna play that song? It’s my jam!’. I knew then it was special. I know that now is the right time to release it. This is my tribute to Kashif.
