Johnny Reid has built a career as a soulful voice for the hardworking. Yet after more than a decade singing songs and celebrating the work of others, he's trying something new. On his latest album Revival, Reid is looking inward, taking a step toward understanding himself and his own feelings and motivations. Reid performs new songs and speaks to host Tom Power about self-discovery and how he balances family with his life on the road.
