Welcome to Radio Feedback, Radio.com’s weekly feature where we ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio.

His third single off the album was “Follow Through,” and while driving around Washington, D.C. he heard the song. In an interview with Radio.com, he explained why hearing this song came full circle.
