I like it.

Nice sounding steel.


Nice job on the writing of the lyrics. Joe Walsh don't wear a cowboy hat... made me smile.

Nice job on the editing, even if you did use Logic.... (smirkey smile)

Ain't that the truth?...(listening to the lyrics and commenting) .

Nice chorus.

Having to listen again... yeah I like it that much.


This is my kind of song.... I would have loved collaborating on this..... but alas.... you did a fine job on it.

Another good "country music just ain't country music anymore" song.

Tommy,

Good write. Several good lines in this one. As usual, I like your arrangement and mix. Two thumbs up!

Country music isn't my genre of choice... I LIKE the fact that Joe Walsh doesn't wear a cowboy hat... but I understand all the points you have made so well in this song.

You really have a wide base of talent to draw from... especially your ability to turn a phrase! All of your songs have been peppered with interesting catch-phrases. And your musicianship is highly respectable too. Good job on everything you've posted to the forum, especially this one since it's the current topic.

I agree, it's a shame they don't play the old stuff anymore. YouTube has tons of old performances. I no longer listen to radio. Good job, keep writing!

Good performance, arrangement and some lines in there made me chuckle.

But I have to admit I like lots of the "new" country too. <grin>

Tom,

A good write. Good vocal, good mix. Hopefully, real country isn't dead - just taking a breather - an will cycle back around one of these days...

Yeah... I knew that....

I really loved the Eagles early stuff, their later stuff isn't bad either.

Yep, Keith Whitley, Ricky Skaggs, George Strait, Alan Jackson and Randy Travis bailed out country from the schlock in the early 80's but, man, has it gone down the tubes since. Here's hoping. For all the reasons already stated I really like this tune! Best one of this theme since "Murder on Music Row." Thanks for the chance to listen!!

Joanne, Thanks for listening and commenting.

Herb, I got a BIG laugh out of that picture. Just to be clear - I love the Eagles- Watched the new documentary three times.

Steve, Thanks for weighing in. I always look forward to your comments.

Pat , Your comments really touched me. A BIG thanks.

Robb, I also watch youtube for the old clips. Thanks for listening and commenting.

Sundance, Glad I made you smile. With a screen name like that you should.

Floyd, Real county is still here. Just go to Texas. Thanks for the comments.

Janice & Bud, I am a big fan of yours, thanks for listening. I did think of Murder on Music Row during this write.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
