"Work in Progress" is a sweet sentiment regarding her introduction to the Music Industry co-written with hit songwriter Marcus Hummon and well known studio producer Greg Bieck. Her current single "Along the Way" is available on all digital platforms.
Colleen co-wrote the song with Marcus Hummon, the hit songwriter behind the Dixie Chicks' "Cowboy Take Me Away" and Sara Evans' "Born to Fly," and studio engineer Greg Beick. Its lyrics admit that there's always room to grow without conceding long-term goals ("I'm the best I've even been, but not the best I'll ever be").
"When I walked in the studio that day with Marcus and Greg, Marcus already had the entire song structure minus the chorus when we all sat down," says Colleen in a press release. "For the first time I wasn't worried about how commercial the song was or what everyone else was going to think about the song. I was just honest. I think that is why we are so proud and excited to let you all in one who we are, as a work in progress."
To commemorate the single's release, Brooks shared a photo online of himself, Colleen and her stepmother, Trisha Yearwood. "What a beautiful voice on your grandmother's birthday ... perfect," says Brooks in the photo caption.

"We had so much fun recording this one and we hope that is shows!!"The tune was co-written by Allie Colleen and Steven McMorran. This song is all about loving a traveler, someone with an old soul, and a love for explanation.
