Neil? Not so much...hearing Kenny!

Cornbread? Cheese, jalapeños and some sorghum syrup to dip it in smile

Great vocal and excellent use of that Brent solo...really works well...like it was played for the song.

And the write? Well, we're southern born and southern bred -- for better or worse so we gotta love it!

Cool bro....

SO SO GOOD!!! FInd myself singing along by the second chorus! So catchy, so melodic, SO much heart! Love the BGs in the choruses (I feel they could be a tiny bit louder). Lots of great images in the lyrics. EVERYTHING done RIGHT!!! Great stuff Kenny!! Take care. Greg

Hi Kenny ...

I'm married to one of them, although I'm one of those damned Yankees (St. Louis)! And you;re right about the cornbread. I like miner with a good amount of honey and way too many jalapenos. Than eat it with a lot of butter slathered all over it.

Loved the song! You never disappoint, my friend! Waiting to click onto one of your songs for the first time reminds me of when I was a little kid and someone handed me my first Christmas present - joyous anticipation. Keep writing & singing and I'll keep listening.

Alan

Great stuff, Kenny!

Love the opening with the B3.

Great opening lines to set the mood:

"Raised to respect
But still just a little bit wild
All grown up
But to me she’s a woman child"

Man, I wish I had a small fraction of your writing skills.

And of course that signature vocal is the icing on the cake.

Very much enjoyed!

Kenny,
I know Soundcloud is the nearly ubiquitous streamer for this forum but perhaps try a different streaming service or upload with a screensaver type visual to YouTube With Utub you'll have more control over the quality of the playback and therefore fewer issues as a result.
Or "master" with a little less level so that SC doesn't do damage.
OR, better still, upload an MP3 or .wav file for folks to download and enjoy as you hear & intended.

thanks Joe,

I had to change that key signature, it was a little too high ranged at first,

thankfully it's a breeze with BiaB.

appreciate the kind words

you know it!

I forgot to mention butter!

didn't know you were a Yankee, I forgive you

I should've just called the song "Cornbread"

I hope Di is doing good and that you are well

I appreciate the listen and kind words

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
