One of the old sayings in Nashville is that it's a "10-year town." Meaning, those who are able to make their dream come true in Music City, it generally takes 10 years.

For some artists and songwriters it may take less time, but for singer-songwriter Ben Gallaher, it was literally a 10-year journey.

The Pennsylvania native celebrated his 10th year in Nashville last month, and he's also celebrating the fact he has his debut single at country radio.

Gallaher recently signed with new label Quartz Hill Records, and released his first single to country radio in September called "Every Small Town."

Written by Gallaher with Jim Collins and Ash Bowers, the song talks about the millions of hard working Americans that make an honest living in their small town that most have never heard of. But everyone has a dream. The beauty is that everyone's dream is different. These small towns are what make this country great. That's country music through and through.

The song is included on Gallaher's EP of the same name.

Ben spent some time with WYRK as this week's featured artist on the "Nine O'clock News."

He talked about "Every Small Town", his musical journey, and his Pennsylvania State Prison tour.

Listen below.
