This will most likely be my last song post of 2017. It's been a blessed year with a lot of new song ideas, (Thanks BIAB for making this possible) and it's incredible to think about all the wonderful music that has been posted by so many of you this year!! I look forward to a great 2018!
When I was young, I was strongly influenced by all the popular rock/pop groups on he radio and it's reflected in my music. But I was also influenced by several of the Country music greats. This song is a tip of the hat to them. Its a fictional tale of one man's regret about letting the love of his life slip away only to find out later she had passed away and being left with the sorrow of that decision. I guess the moral of this story is to appreciate what we have. Thanks for listening! Happy holidays!

Good stuff, Torrey! Loved the intro, very effective, and great vocal as per usual.

The slide added a really nice atmosphere to the track.

Best to you and yours for the holidays!

Great song Torrey, and SUPERB vocals, as usual.
I particularly enjoyed the chord progression (especially in the verse), a bit unusual for country, but very, very evocative, perfect for the song. Very, very nice.
The mix is great too. It does sound a bit over-compressed to my ears, but it could be just me.
Great job!!!

Nice one, Torrey.

I like the way you used to steel in this. Good vocal (a different sound for you, I thought). Even though you mention Merle in your description, this has the sound of the "popier" Country acts that followed later. England Dan and John Ford Coley come to mind...

Nice arrangement. Good mix.

Enjoyed it.

Great song Torrey, a great full American sound as ever.
But like Jon Thomas said, a little too much compression on the mix.
But that's just a small nit smile

Great song!! Love that slide guitar-grabbed me instantly. This is a bit different for you (some country flavor) but certainly up to your usual high standard. A great listen!! Like Joanne said, it has been a great year for you musically. Merry Xmas!! Take care. Greg

Torrey,
This is a different song from others you`ve posted this year - the vocal on the verses has a more upfront modern country sound.
On the chorus, with those harmonies it definitely has that polished sound we`ve come to expect.
I especially liked the ending where you take it down a little before the close.
A very enjoyable listen.
Wishing you all the best for the coming year!

Robert

Hi Torrey,

In the 5+ years I've been here, I think this is the first time I've heard you do country song, per se. You have a terrific country voice! You remind me a little of Andy Griggs and, perhaps, a little Richie McDonald (lead singer for Lonestar).

The writing reminds me of something Skip Ewing might have penned.

Great song and performance. You're terrific composer and performer.

Merry Christmas.

Alan

Quite different from you but a really pro arrangement - excellent slide playing and vocals - very melodic and nicely done.

Fantastic song Torrey.

Has the feel of Midnight in Montgomery to me.
And that's a favorite of mine.
The title got my attention immediately and the song held it.

Cheers.

Torrey, I like this different side of you. The chord progression is interesting and fits the song structure well. Great vocals and guitars. I rarely find fault with any of your productions but I agree that it is over compressed and I was getting a pumping quality that I'm sure can be easily remedied. Really nice song.,Tom

Thanks Jon for listening and commenting! I rushed this a little when I put up online and I am still working on editing and final processing. Also changing/rephrasing words here and there that don't fit. I will have a new mix up next weekend. T
