Fall Line Road

© 2020 Tom Adams & Janice Merritt
A Tom Adams (tommyad) production.

Tom wrote the lyric, put it to a progression and sent it to Janice for her to create a melody and record some vocals. She entered her “method actor mode” and became this lady for a while smile We had no idea where he was gonna take it after we sent the vocal but for us it certainly landed in a cool place and we hope y’all agree!

Tom and his wife camp a lot in a very nice large camper and it requires a BIG truck to pull it. He suggested a photo of Janice and his truck model…so this is what we spliced together for SC. Oh, and we live on Ga’s fall line.

Please note that this is a Tommyad production. All I (Bud) did was engineer the dry vocals and edit the photo and enjoy the ride.

The three of us hope you enjoy it and appreciate your time to listen and comment. And thanks to Tom for inviting us in on this.

Fall Line Road

Hair pulled back in a pony tail
Tall and skinny as a fence post rail
Tattooed sleeves runnin up and down my arms
Cowgirl boots just a little bit dirty
Never walk like I’m in a hurry
Last thing I’d want is to ride in a luxury car

Bad A$$ Ladies don’t drive Mercedes
You might think I’m a little bit crazy
But I know who I am and where I’m goin
Big ol diesel 4 wheel drive
Across the river and through the pines
A country girl just a flying down fall line road

Whoop and holler like a crazy fool
If I had me a dollar I”d know what to do
Take the old jeep trail up to that backwoods bar
Have a real cold beer then have me another
I’m a better version of a Redneck Mother
Never gonna trade my truck for a luxury car

Bad A$$ Ladies don’t drive Mercedes
You might think I’m a little bit crazy
But I know who I am and where I’m goin
Big ol diesel 4 wheel drive
Across the river and through the pines
A country girl just a flying down fall line road

Hi there Tom + J&B,

Another fabulous track from the team.

"Bad A$$ Ladies don’t drive Mercedes"

HA! Lines don't get any better than that!

A romping backing track from start to finish with Tom's Telecaster sounding exactly
like a Telecaster should do and I'm assuming the wonderful pedal steel is you too, Tom.

Janice - what can I say that you haven't heard me say a hundred times already.
I'm a fan who you never disappoint!

Great stuff.

ROG.

Excellent! Just a real fun song.

I also really like that "Bad A$$ Ladies don’t drive Mercedes" line.

Tom sounds great on the tele and steel, and of course Janice always sounds great.

Enjoyed the listen, well done all!

Tom & Janice,

Solid write. Favorite lines?
"Tattooed sleeves runnin up and down my arms" - Nice!!
"Have a real cold beer then have me another
I’m a better version of a Redneck Mother..." Oh, yeah...

Great mix. Everything right where it should be. Pumpin' Bass, Kickin' Drums. Crisp guitars. Loud and Proud.

Killer leads/fills.

Gorgeous Good Ol' Girl vocal.

excellent.

This is SO. MUCH. FUN!!!

Superb job. I want some of that talent you guys and lady have ... what's your secret??? Whatever it is, this is easily one of your best songs. I want to dance just listening to it. So well and professionally done from the technical standpoint, too ... but who cares about technicalities when you all make it sound so, so easy? :-)

I will mention, however, just one "technicality": Mrs Merritt, you have a voice and musicality the envy of so, so, so many musicians out there. The timbre is just perfect and the way you communicate through it is, for me, just beyond words - pure communication in musical form. World class, right out there. I've heard you sing slow songs, where the emotion in your voice brings tears to the eyes, and I've heard you sing fast songs like this one where one just can't help dancing - flawless every time - sincerest congratulations.

I feel lucky to be part of this amazing forum with such musicians. Really lucky. :-)

Thank you Rog! When Tom invites me to join in a song I know it will be a great write
and that I'll have a big time working on it.

Tom,Janice & Bud,
Shoots my favourite lyrics have been quoted already- its a very good write all the way through and the chorus lead line is pricele$$.
A great backup band for an awesome vocalist.
Interesting history of those roads...some still to be seen I`m sure in that 4WD.
Very good!

Robert

Tom Janice & Bud

First of that guitar sounds wicked. Fun song all round,great vocal and just a clever write (love how it was composed).

I've got a new image of Janice running round in my head now - with her sleeve tattoos, and bad A$$ attitude.

Peter

(actually it's really a bit of a stretch to conjure up that image!!! grin )

Excellent on all levels.
Is it too fast to boot scoot to?
I enjoy the humour and images created - the melody was beamed down.
COOL.

A bad-a$$ lady, a really big truck, a hot Tele and a master knob twister stitching it all together ... what more could a listener want?

With a team like this, how could it be anything other the best? It's just so good in every possible way. Congrats to all ... very well done! Also, loved that little synched thing just before the ending ... so cool! Really great stuff. Congrats to the whole crew!

Wishing all of you the best. Be safe ...

Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
