“I won’t deny that one of the most incredible feelings on earth is being on stage singing for hundreds/thousands of fans,” says LeBlanc, “but there’s something magical when you’re sitting by a campfire with family and friends, and everybody sings along to some classic campfire songs.”
“Campfire Song” is both a tribute and an invitation to reflect on the meaningfulness of gathering and connection, especially when bolstered by the magic of nature and music. It captures the essence of a campfire gathering and evokes cherished memories of warmth, camaraderie, and summer fun. On the track, LeBlanc shouts out John Denver, Chris Stapleton (George Jones), and The Beatles; but more importantly, he calls out to all listeners to embrace the shared experience of singing around a campfire. Everybody knows that true cool kids will always sing along! Listen on Spotify here: open.spotify.com/track/0fEduD5gRORwA80E2ymX9y?si=5b182018c21f4673&nd=1
