Chicago cowboy crooner Andrew Sa changed lanes from folk to country after opening for Lavender Country in 2017. When meeting the late Patrick Haggerty, who released the first known gay-themed album in country music history in 1973, Sa sought to write a new collection of songs from the new perspective of his queer country crooner persona, Lonesome Andrew. With several half written songs in tow, he set out to finish them on a writing retreat with his close friend Liam Kazar.
