It’s been a few months since we’ve checked in with Colorado singer/songwriter R Michael Rhodes, who is premiering his music video for “The Only Song” today. “The Only Song” is the first single to be released off his upcoming EP After All These Years, which will be available September 2016.
In April, Michael and the 7&CO Productions team traveled to the gorgeous mountain landscape of Fairplay, CO to craft the story and film the video. We brought you coverage on that awesome production in detail here. “The Only Song” is a symphonic ballad about longing, love lost, and grand gestures. Actress Laura Lee co-stars in the video with Michael, and helps bring the beauty of the song to life.

Fans of James Taylor, Garth Brooks, and John Denver are bound to be drawn to Michael’s music. It’s not about the flash, but rather the integrity of the words and the feeling put into the songs. “The Only Song” is no exception to this mantra, as Michael belts out:
“You’re the only song I couldn’t write
And you’re the only one who knows me at all
And my dreams fade in the night
I can still remember how you used to call
When you called my name”
“The Only Song” leaves much to look forward to, as Michael’s upcoming EP After All These Years reveals an intimate scrapbook of his life. The five-song EP, which was recorded at The Spot Studios, is honest and heartfelt, yet still carries an easy listening feel to it that is hard not to like. It has hints of rock’n’roll, country, and Americana all wrapped up into one package.
After All These Years will be available for purchase September 2016, but in the meantime, there is an exclusive presale promotion starting now. Fans who purchase the EP on iTunes can receive the single for “The Only Song” free! It’s a hard bargain to pass up, so go check it out now!
