Welcome to BuzzMusic, Jim Peterik. We adored every second of your heartfelt and genuine new single with Toby Hitchcock, "All That's Mine To Give." What inspired you to create such a sincere and thoughtful ballad like this?
Good question, BuzzMusic. I’ve been happily married to my high school sweetheart Karen since 1972. Sure there have been a few rough patches, but we knew what we had was real. Now our son Colin is 33. He is a successful singer-songwriter, studio owner, and loving husband and father to Maisy, five years of age, and Colby, who is 3. This song is my homage not only to our marriage but sharing the hope that you can enjoy the same kind of longevity. I set out to write the perfect song to share with that special someone in your life. What was your collaboration like with Toby Hitchcock and Mark Scherer for "All That's Mine To Give"? Was this your first time working with these artists?
Toby Hitchcock and I are about to complete our 8th worldwide release for our band Pride of Lions on the Frontiers label out of Italy. Marc Scherer is also an incredible vocalist. I wrote and produced his 2016 Frontiers release Risk Everything Regarding the "All That's Mine To Give" lyric video, who helped bring that to life? Why did you want to capture various scenes of couples enjoying quality time together?
The lyric video was created by Cathy Richardson, lead vocalist of Jefferson Starship and a Grammy-nominated videographer. She captured the emotion of the song to a tee.

I never stop looking for things in life that move me. Writing a song is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration. It takes both to create a truly meaningful song.
