Most holidays are celebrated with song and dance and merriment, some more represented than others (lookin’ at you Christmas!) and yet there is one that is too often neglected; Groundhog Day.
Joe Abbott remedies that next Friday, July 8th, with the release of “Six More Weeks of Winter,” his first single with Baby Horse Records.
