Presenting the premier of Andrew McConathy’s new song ‘Beat Up, Beat Down and Broken,’ written in tribute to a dear friend he lost just hours after sharing a cup of coffee. “We held a service for him in the middle of a snowstorm on top of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and then a few weeks later an ash scattering ceremony in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in California. During the ash scattering ceremony, a man that I had never met spoke, and his words really struck a chord inside of me. ‘We are all broken,’ he said. ‘But we all still shine.’ I wrote ‘Beat Up, Beat Down and Broken’ the day I got home.”
