With more than 500K YouTube views, 250K Spotify streams and 4 #1 international iTunes hits, one could say that any new release from See Your Shadow Songwriting is a sure bet. The recent Prayze Factor Gospel Awards winner (for “I Will Tell Jesus You Said Hello”) is raising the stakes by dealing a brand new single on September 24, 2021.

The single, “Showdown” joins an already impressive catalog amassed by songwriters Michael “The Metropolitan Cowboy” Coleman, in collaboration with long-time See Your Shadow partner, J. Richard Murray. This rocking country single weaves intricate metaphors with colorful imagery to cast a narrative of a young boy becoming a man.

Coleman tells the story of the song’s genesis: “A while back, Rich approached me about a writing competition he had heard about. The competition was taking place in Nashville over a weekend, and we were not told who we were writing for, or what we were being asked to write about until the day of the competition. We would then have one day to write the song and then present it to a celebrity panel and audience. The task was to come up with a piece that had a poker related element to it, as who we were writing for was a singer who was also a competitive poker player on the Vegas circuit. Our result was, ‘Showdown.’ While it was the crowd favorite at that competition, it wasn’t selected by the panel. I am just glad that we are now able to give this piece a new life and share it with our fans.”
