Nothing formulaic or insincere about this one.
Two excellent voices entwined in melody.


Thanks, ray, as always...

Janice and Floyd, this is pure country, which is a genre that I like a lot, and you more than did it justice.

Super vocals, lyrics, and mix.

Loved it.

So...call me... smile

2-I got an earful because of your song! My dad happened to be in when I was listening to it. I was going to turn it off when he walked in so we could talk and he said "don't turn that off! You finally have some REAL music you're playing. He listened to the whole thing and loved it! He asked who it was, and I told him it was Florida Georgia Line. I probably should correct him before he has too many conversations with my relatives about how he likes this Florida Georgia Line. laugh


You should always listen to your father.

Quote:
3-This HAS to be written on piano? Even if it wasn't the piano made this song even better! The perfect way to heighten a gorgeous song. That's a GREAT sounding piano btw!


Nope. Written on guitar. (the piano is the Grand from EZKeys)

Quote:
4 of 3-Sorry I can't NOT mention Janice. But then again he talent is so obvious do I need to. Again, you two(three) work so well together. Between her vocal and Bud's knowing how to process to what you need, it's all there.[quote]

Well, of course... smile

[quote] Thanks for sharing this one. Many listens will continue with this one!


And thanks for adding your voice...

Floyd and Janice ...

I'll make this short and to the point. If someone asked me to define country music of the 80s and 90s, I'd simply give them the URL to this song. What else needs to be said? Basically, nothing.

Chad, I love what your Dad said about this song being “real” music and I agree. smile I always love singing with floyd and truly appreciate your comments about my singing and mine and Bud’s teamwork.

Babu

Thanks so much Marty. And Bud and I are sure thankful that floyd is here too!

Olemon,

Thanks Scott! We agreed years ago that floyd and I are musical siblings. wink

I love it all! smile

It's got that classic country music sound.

You and Danny really wrote some good stories. It's got a conversational tone, tells the story while feeling natural, and has a "feel good" ending. My favorite line:

   now isn't this better, they think we're together

And of course, excellent heartfelt singing. Janice perfect here - as you said, a no brainer.

I like the way you snuck the drum in one bit at a time. Great arrangement.

As I said - I love it all.

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

Misha, Andi, Peter and Torrey,
Thank you for appreciating my harmony with floyd. Like y’all, I thought floyd and Danny should’ve had a hit with this one. Of course, I think that about every one of floyd’s songs! wink

Greg, Mario, Al-David, DCuny and Scott,

Thank you for the listens and mentions of my harmony. Singing with floyd is such a joy for me and I agree with y’all about his capturing the “classic country” sound. I’m hoping for many more years of our sibling harmony. smile

Here's some of the things I say for every Floyd Jane song: Love those lyrics, man. No one says it better. Great write. If music moguls cared more about good music rather than what they sell, this would be on every radio. Like C.Aaron (Chad) said about his dad "REAL music." Vocals are outstanding, and Janice is such an intelligent choice. What a wonderful blend. The mix was obviously done by a professional.

Thanks for being here, Floyd.

Like the piano too:)


I'm not familiar with Danny Mayo, though I recognize some of the songs he wrote. His death must have been a terrible shock. So sorry, Floyd.

Scott


Thanks, Scott.
Danny's death WAS a shock. It happened on his birthday. A bunch of us had gathered at the main writer's night to sing songs that we had written with Danny. Danny had booked a room at the hotel next door. That was a bad night...

Misha.

P.S. "Break my heart if you must, but comment anyway..." LOL
Fine, here is my amateur critical comment. Because of similar "crying" feel I would choose only one, either Pedal steel or fiddle.



Thanks, Misha.
(It's a long standing tradition for Country to have a steel and a fiddle trading tears...)

It's all been said above. This is classic top shelf Floyd and Janice vocal work, great, sad love lyrics and superb band.
Pro all the way.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Now that's a slow dancing, beer nursing song. Your voice is in top form here. Janice's harmony lifts an already good chorus to a new level.

What a great vocal performance by both of you! Enjoyed it all the way!

Thanks, TB
