Willy Vlautin shows us that creativity comes in many forms by performing a song written for his new novel.

Willy performs a song from his album that coincides with his new book, Don't Skip Out On Me. The novel tells the story of a man with a big dream who leaves his small Nevada town to become a championship boxer.

The author and musician also had a film adaptation made from his 2010 book, Lean on Pete. The film opens in theaters on April 6.
