This song has a very authentic Nashville style sound to it with western and bluegrass influences. The story comes from my experiences playing many shows and getting worn so thin that sometimes you wonder if it's worth it to go on. I used all Band In A Box real tracks for the instrumental. The final mixing and vocals were done in Cubase LE AI Elements 8.

tempo 204bpm
Real Tracks used:
519, Bass, El, Pop Half Note
426 Banjo, Bluegrass
406 Guitar, Ac, Strumming
621 Pedalsteel, Bckgrd Easy
619 Guit, Res, Bckgrd, Cowboy
410 Guit, El, Rh Ctry Cowboy
601 Fiddle, Soloist, Train
436 Mandolin, Soloist, Bluegrass
412 Guitar, Electic, Soloist Cowboy

Lyrics:

(Verse)
Been Drinking too much whiskey and singing country songs.
This life I lead's a thrill but I know it won't last long.
Each night a different stage in some other little town.
I'm running fast and hard and I know I can't slow down.

(Chorus)
And I'm tired drunk and stoned.
Living life out on the road.
These songs they satisfy my soul.
but I'm still tired drunk and stoned.

(Verse)
Last night in Mississippi in some whole in the wall
I met a girl from Georgia who's name I can't recall.
Bot when I woke Up this morning I was tired and alone
with a ringing in my head and an aching in my bones.

(Chorus)
And I'm tired drunk and stoned.
Living life out on the road.
These songs they satisfy my soul.
but I'm still tired drunk and stoned.

(Verse)
Up here in the spotlight it starts to look the same.
Shadows on the wall and faces with no name.
Another shot of whiskey and another bowl to toke.
Might go back to the hotel and do a line of coke.

(Chorus)
And I'm tired drunk and stoned.
Living life out on the road.
These songs they satisfy my soul.
but I'm still tired drunk and stoned.

(Verse)
With one hand on the bible... The other on the gun
Do I ask him for forgiveness or do I just succumb
To the demons I've been chasing 'round in circles in my head?
They're trying to convince me that Id be better off dead.

(Chorus)
Instead of tired drunk and stoned.
Living life out on the road.
These songs they satisfy my soul.
but I'm still tired drunk and stoned.

Great tune, Samuel - and welcome to the forums! The mix is on point, as is the vocal delivery. The tempo change up near the end fitted perfectly. I really liked the lyrics too. Thanks so much for sharing! Can't wait to hear else you come up with using Band-in-a-Box smile

Samuel,

This is great. I love to see how an artist can prove that Band in a Box is a full-on recording studio for Nashville hits.

Great guitar, use of tracks and overall production.

Nice.

Samuel,
You are definitely in the right place. Most of us here have worn that, "cleanest dirty shirt". Well done.

this could fit well on some of Marshall Tucker's early albums. "Searching for a Rainbow" came to mind as I listened to the groove you have going in this song.

Nice first time out..... can't wait to see what you'll be doing once you get the hang of this thing.

The song hits the dark and gritty side of this business. It sure isn't all spotlights and good times. But, there's always 2 sides to a coin.

I'll reserve commenting on the nits for now.

good job.

edit: on the line "Up here in the spotlight" I was half expecting... "you're a million miles away".....

Welcome!

Great song out the gate! Nice lyric, band and vocals. We started using BIAB in 2011 and have enjoyed almost everything about it. Sounding good on all fronts - lyric, vocal, tracks and production. Looking forward to a lot more!

Sounds like your gigging experience and likely some time in the studio set you up very well for BiaB.

Strong write, vocal, arrangement and production.

And it sounded excellent on our monitors.

Welcome! We enjoyed it.

Enhance Your Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows Installation

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

This free update also includes the most recent build of our DAW Plugin (3.9.12).

Learn more about this free update and download it today.

Ordering Your Band-in-a-Box® is Easy!

When you order any PG Music products directly from www.pgmusic.com (or www.bandinabox.com) you'll receive immediate links to start downloading your order! Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Do you use RealBand (included in all Band-in-a-Box® for Windows purchases)? Download the latest free update, which resolves a small viewing issue for Windows 11 users.

When you download the latest update for RealBand 2021, it will add all the updates we've made this year. See the full list here.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
