“Oh I’ve been down this road before
Seen my curtain call
I’ve played my hand like any man
not afraid to lose it all
You better get your house and daughter
Pride comes before the fall
You can try to stand your ground
but I’m coming off of this mountain
Like a cannonball”

Ross is bringing a fresh take on the combination of both country and rock music with his sound and we are here for it. Whether you want to vibe at a honky tonk downtown or have the energy of Warped Tour, “Cannonball” is satisfactory to both and is a song you don’t want to miss!
