You are the woman in my life / you get all my Facebooks likes
I knew eventually / you’d get the better of me
I was / Lost not Found / Inside out / Upside Down
And then came along and helped me out

I just need to tell you / something you should know
I will never let you GO let you GO let you GO
You Got The Better of Me

You make me a better man / I am doing everything I can
to get with your Grand Plan / To make me a better man

I was / Down and Out / didn’t know what / Lifes About
Now I / Have no Doubt that Im / flying up in the clouds

I was a / No Where Man / without Dreams or Plans
then you / Took my Hand / and led me to the Promised Land

This is excellent modern country with a touch of The Beatles.

Your vocal is very strong, the lyrics are great and the backing tracks bring it all together.

I really enjoyed this!

Really well done, Elliott smile Very catchy, with a great groove and strong vocals. The kind of tune that gets my foot tapping right away, and it is definitely an ear worm! A really good example of well-executed modern country.

Nice work, and thanks for sharing!

Very interesting observation.
I am a huge Beatles fan, and very influenced by their music, but I wrote this song as a country tune without any conscious thought of the Beatles.

I blame it all on my roots .... lol

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hello, Elliott

Yes, this is the early Beatles.
As Joe says, this sounds fantastic! Vocals are mixed well and the drum fills are very punchy.
The guitar riff that appears many times is really nice.
It works very well as a spice and an accent for this song.
Enjoyed my listen lot.

Best regards.

If I were thinking of pitching this toward any popular country artist today I would elevate the production to a professional grade demo in order to be competitive with the other material that will pitched. There's a lot of competition and every artist and producer already have a long list of go to writers when they start a project.

I went back and listened to your song with the idea to who would be a good match to pitch the song to make a professional, studio quality, full featured demo.

I'd recommend Joe Gilder for two reasons.

First, I think Joe is a good fit for this particular song and although Joe is technically a home studio recordist, he's first class and can produce top studio grade demos. He's based in Nashville and knows the market.

Second, your demo will be charted and recorded with actual Nashville session musicians focused toward a production that's specific toward the modern country sound. (One of Joe's team members is actually a BIAB RealTrack artist )

Here's a link to one of Joe's originals to give you an idea of what to expect he can do for your song and also so you can judge the difference you'll be getting to increase your competitive opportunities when you pitch your song.

To comment on your production of the song. It has very catchy lyrics, a good melody and is a good mix, production and performance. I've enjoyed my listen and have gone back to listen several times so far. This is a good song.

Thanks for the feedback. I wonder if anyone has used BIAB productions to make demos to pitch songs, and what success rate? Anyone know?

Seems like it's all been said Elliott, so I'll just endorse: catchy song, infectious beat, tight production. Good job all around!
