A fun country song and video for you all!!

BIAB's fabulous country music tools make it easy. We usually use Real Drums and Real Bass but for country, we use the hard-to-get Steel and Fiddle Real Tracks instead of trying to find studio musicians.

Here's the song link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4NbXWW06hY

Check out our YouTube channel: SongCrafters Corner for more original songs. Please subscribe and hit the notification bell to listen to new songs when they drop.
Thank You
Duane

Nice story-song, and very pleasant use of the BIAB components. Liked how you handled the ending. Overall production sounded very professional.

For what it’s worth listener feedback...I’d drop out some of the background sound texture during the verse and resume it at the chorus, just as you added the backup vocal harmony.

Nicely done, SongCrafter!! Welcome to the Forum. Gotta go. Someone's asking me Pass The Tequila. Are you using BiaB in all of your songs?

A pleasant listen. An easy Country feel.

Good use of BIAB.

Welcome to the forum and the Showcase.

(There was a short-lived magazine out of Nashville in the early 90's called SongCrafter. Your font/logo look similar. So thanks for the memories!!)

Thanks Babu!

We've been using BIAB since the MIDI days and have been watching and upgrading, since then.

Generally speaking, drum and bass lines are used then other tracks are filled in to completion.

This is a very nice, easy-to-listen-to country song. I tend to agree with Tano about the background fills on the verses. Nonetheless, it didn't take away from the listening pleasure. A really nice song and nicely presented. That was a great listen!

Welcome to the User's Forum! Keep the great music coming ...

Alan

Country music at its finest! Your vocal, backing tracks, and mix are excellent. The lyrics were also very good.

This should be played on every country station.

Thanks you two!!

I never developed a taste for the "new country", so it's tough to write that stuff for me. We've got some more "old country" like from the 80's and 90's that will drop in the next few weeks.
