We want to share with you a song called Somewhere In America. We have been working on this song in various forms for many years, but I made a commitment to myself to finally finish it in recent months. It is a very personal story, but unfortunately it feels as relevant as ever.

To clarify any confusion, Somewhere in America is written from my point of view, and the story is mine. It is not written for sympathy or remembrance. It is about empathy. It is inspired by the feelings of anger, sadness, hopelessness, and guilt I feel every time I hear of another life lost and family shattered by gun violence. My story is over a decade old, but new stories are occurring every single day.

If you are reading this, then you most likely have helped support AR over the years and we can’t thank you enough. Regardless of where you stand.

I hope you listen to Somewhere In America with an open mind. I hope you it leaves you inspired. I hope it is outdated in the very near future. It is possible. If we want it to be.  – ERIC DONNELLY, 2016

Compelling, Must-Hear Single – Somewhere In America – The Alternate Routes

The Alternate Routes recently released a single called Somewhere In America. This song is… well… wow. It’s heartbreaking. It’s beautiful. It makes me cry. And I can’t stop listening to it, over and over, with tears and hope.
