Tom,
There`s something so genuine in your lyrics- you could milk the regret here but don`t; love that opening verse!
The ringing guitar coming out of the chorus is sweet and the whole production a benchmark for everything done right... not bad for a guy with partial hearing loss!

Hello, Tom

Powerful country tune!
The melody of chorus clause is really good.
The Pedal Steel you play by yourself is so nice.
It's splendid that you can play pedal steel.
Super vocal and big drums!
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

I haven't listen to this yet, but had to stop in to say...

Tom is the LAST person needing any advice on how to mix drums. His are ALWAYS mixed at a truly pro level. The best around.
Thanks for having my back little bro!

Tom, when you sing we always feel that you are “the” person in the song. That you have lived the story - not that you are just relating it. Janice mentioned the word “conviction.” Yep.

This is one of those few tunes that take you on a journey, albeit a vignette, of a person’s life that seems so remarkably real. It’s not the least bit contrived due in large part to your vocal and lyric.

And there’s the always present high, very high, production values. And the vocal and instrumental never disappoint.

Janice says she will have the melody in her head all day. And that’s a good thing she also said. smile

I definitely really dig what you did with the mandolins! It gave this song a really neat sound, and it has that classic country twang!

Good job. Thanks for sharing.

"She’s got first hand knowledge bout the way I used to be
It’s not her problem it’s my legacy"

"It’s almost like it happened to someone just like me"

Terrific lines. Excellent write throughout.

A typical Tom Adams tight production. Snappy drums. Sweet steel in all the right spots. Nice vocals and harmonies, sitting just right. Nice guitar touches.

Another in a long line of hits.

Herb said it simply, and said it right!! LOVE THIS!!! Your lyrics are so natural. It is so hard to write in an original way with all of the millions of songs that have been written. But, you make it sound effortless Tom. This is another gem!! Take care. Greg
Greg, Thanks for the great comments, Tom

Super backing, perfect pedal steel and your vocals just keep getting better and better.

A classic.

Thanks ROG! I call this Appalachian Honky-Tonk. Some might say Alternative Country or Americana. Glad you liked it, Tom

I could listen to this song 1000 times and still want to hear it 1000 more. It's because it feels right to me. I love that in a song.

Nice Guy? That all depends on who you ask! Caaron, I appreciate all these wonderful comments, Thank You, Tom

Very good work on this one Tommy.
So melodic, top notch chord progression and the transition to the chorus is great.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
