Canfield singer writes song for author Nicholas Sparks’ next novel

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A singer and songwriter from Canfield has teamed up with one of America’s most famous writers to add something to, and help promote, the writer’s next novel.
JD Eicher, a Canfield High School graduate, wrote a song that’s accompanying Nicholas Sparks’ new novel, “Two by Two.”
“My label [Rock Ridge Music] put my name in the mix,” Eicher said. “I really just got lucky and [Sparks] liked what I was doing.”
Eicher is currently on a book tour with Sparks, who is most famous for the novel “The Notebook.” Eicher has been performing his song, also titled “Two by Two” at the book signings.
The tour started Monday in New York City and stopped in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. There are no plans to bring the book tour to Youngstown.
