Robert, thanks for the kind remarks about the lyrics. I spend some time trying to make them sound natural, 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.

Glad you liked it! Tom

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

This song was a composite of my life and a friend of mine who left his girlfriend high and dry in Atlanta and later regretted it. So it's easy to become invested in the lyric. Thanks for all the nice things you said, Tom

Good job. Thanks for sharing.
Thank You Ember! Tom

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.

There wasn't a lot of lines in this one so I tried to make them count. Thanks for taking the time to quote a few of them, Tom

Tom,

In a word, this is truly...



At 7:00 am here on Sunday morning, the sound that was radiating from my speakers was awesome. The opening with the drums made me sit up and pay attention and, for the rest of the song, I just sat there transfixed at the 24-carat-gold quality I was hearing.

I cannot recall when you sounded better than this. Each and every element in this arrangement, performance, mix and production sits so very comfortably with all other elements. At the end of this musical journey, I sat there thinking, "I think Tom has just moved into musical guru status!"

I'm heading back for another listen now!

All the best,
Noel

You've written a pretty solid country song... I like the lyric "It was cold and it wasn't cool To act like such crazy fool"... Good job on this one!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
