*This year has been great. Been writing a ton with other artists and now I am beginning to envision my next record which I may start in March or April of 2014.

*Had another new song placement on the CW's Hart of Dixie. They used my song 'Hell To Pay' off of my 2009 release, Wheatfire Collections. Here is that song - HELL TO PAY

*Some man over in Instanbul, Turkey made a great little animation video using my song 'Terrible Tommy' that was on FX's Sons of Anarchy. Here is that video - THE TRAVELER

*A song I co-wrote with a good friend up here in Nashville that she recorded was on the featured playlist on Delta Airlines for the month of August this year. She will be releasing the song sometime.

07.09.12 - The Life
Forgive us here at www.ryanhorne.com. I have played some shows in 2012 but not as many as usual and for that I apologize. My creative mind, my songs, and my craft have been much more focused on the writing side of music. I love writing songs. I am obsessed with creating the perfect song. Most days, when I am home, I am sitting at my workspace in Nashville writing with different artists and different genres (country artists, folk artists, blues artists, soul artists, pop artists, etc.) I have had two great placements in the last six months, one with Sons of Anarchy on FX & one with a television commercial. I promise I am trying to work on more tour dates and I know for a fact I will see New York, L.A., and a few other choice cities in the near future this year. Appreciate all the support over the years and promise all the music I put out will only get better. - RH

12.04.11 - Terrible Tommy - chord chart

C#m G#
I've been up and down in prison, I have lived inside this cell
F#m C#m
Surrounded by these demons and the fiery gates of hell
C#m G#
I blame my mother and my father for the man that I've become
F#m C#m
I was born into this family, I was born the devil's son
G# F#m G# C#m
No I aint gonna see my freedom until the day they lay me in the ground

A C#m A C#m
It's such a hard way to fall, such a hard, a hard way to fall
A C#m G# C#m
No I ain't gonna go to heaven, they have locked me in these walls
A G# C#m
It's such a hard way to fall

I got 20 years behind me, almost all that I can take
I've built up this rage and anger, filled my soul with void and hate
I got no hope left inside me, there ain't no joy left to give
Cause I am just an animal to all my prison friends
There ain't no good reason why I should still be alive today


BRIDGE - F#m, C#m, F#m, C#m, F#m, C#m, G#, G#7
Oooooooh, ooooooooh, ooooooooh, ooooooooh

RT @jesseruben : Writing this with @nathanangelo and @ryanhornemusic was one of the best experiences I've had since this pandemic started. Picturing what life would be like, after this is over. Come for the song. Stay for Nathan's voice. It's """ https://t.co/J1eZyKQwRb
