Super country song
Great vocal and mix
Country music at its best!

Wow, that's a cookin' tune! Love everything about this one, but especially your vocals. This is such a great sing-a-long type song, you might consider layering more vocals on the chorus in the 2nd half to encourage participation. I know I'll be singing either way. Ha! Merry Christmas!

Ha! Solid setup right into the chorus and finally the payoff with the hook.

Catchy and fun country. laugh

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

Catchy and clever write, Dewey. Reminds me breaking up before Christmas and getting back together after Valentine Day. Fun band and good vocal that tells the story in a happy way. Nice vocal range. Good song!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dewey,

"..seven days of sweat and blood made out in my name"

"The timing of her stomping on my heart was rather civil
Maybe there was still a part of her that cared for me a little"

Lines to be proud of. Original.

A very good write start to finish.

An appropriate backing.

Confederate Railroad could have taken this to the top...

DC Ron,

I took your advice and added harmony to the chorus; however, I added it to predominantly the whole chorus. To your point, I think it adds a lot and may encourage participatory singing! LOL Thanks for the ear and good comments!

Great write ... nice twists on the broken heart theme. Creative and fun.
Fine vocals, BiaB session folks and mix.

Cool to hear an excellent classic sounding country tune!

Good stuff Dewey. I echo what Floyd had to say about those lines, they really jumped out at me too. Cool steel throughout, though I thought it could have been a little louder in a few places, and maybe the lead vocal as well, but then again I'm kind of partial to them both.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
