"Broke it Down," written by Callihan, Harrison Kindy and Larry McCoy, finds the Georgia native taking "a classic country tune, spinning lyricism that shows the vulnerability of his past, and transforms his sad story into something beautiful (Parade)." The music video exclusively premiered withSounds Like Nashvilleand has received over 100,000 total views.
Born and raised on a small farm in South Georgia, Callihan played baseball and football but found his true passion when he started listening to Keith Whitley. Finding inspiration in Whitley’sGreatest Hits, he purchased a guitar (with extra money earned from catching overpopulated wild hogs on the weekends) and began playing and writing his own music. In 2009, Callihan moved to Nashville where he began co-writing with Cole Swindell, Josh Thompson, Adam Sanders and other hit Nashville singer-songwriters.
In 2011, the hard work paid off when Callihan signed his first publishing deal. Since then, he has written songs that have been recorded and performed by Cole Swindell, Dylan Scott, Trent Tomlinson, Halfway To Hazard and many others. As an artist, Callihan has shared the stage with many mainstream country music artists and has played major festivals such as CMA Fest, Key West Songwriters Festival and The Suwannee River Jam.
