LA Music Awards Singer Songwriter of the Year and San Diego Music Awards Nominee Alex Woodard is giving back to his fans with an ambitious new project. It's a simple concept: pre-order Woodard's new self-titled album (out 8/19 via Woodshack Music/Adrenaline Music Group), and he'll write a song for you.

Woodard will be penning personalized tunes for each and every patron, contacting fans himself to get the details he'll use to write their unique, one-of-a-kind songs. In addition to the special tune, each pre-order will come with a limited-edition t-shirt and access to an exclusive section on Woodard's website called "The Woodshack," where fans can check out photos, videos and never-heard demos, and get details on special meet-and-greets.

Alex has been getting a reputation for changing the way an artist connects to the fans, by playing in their living rooms. "The Woodshack" will be another opportunity for fans to register for these "personal" concerts.

Woodard is drawing comparisons to Tom Petty for his story-driven, country-rock sound and honest, gritty lyrics. Allmusic.com raves, "Like John Cougar Mellencamp, Woodard pens tales instantly recognizable, for they're American stories we've all lived and shared, with the album holding a mirror to us all."

Download.com observes that Alex's "cool folk melancholy sounds especially fine next to gleaming country-pop guitars," and Today's Country Magazine says: "Woodard crafts his lyrics in a way that delivers the stories perfectly."
