Hank and Stu are on their way. You will hear more of them as they continue to develop into ace songwriters.
I think this song has a "classic country" sound. Don't know if that helps it much as far as being on the radio goes, but it is a classic sound. I like the vocals to. Just the right touch of reverb adds to the honkytonk atmosphere I feel in this song (kind of like the early Cash recording at Sun Records). It's not the most original song, BUT, very few "classic country" songs were original. They were what they were and that was part of the quality and realness of the genre. For me, this song fits into that era easily. Of course, compared to the stuff currently labeled as "country," this song does sound fresh and original. I'd like to here more music like this on the radio, but I tend to doubt it will happen.
This song tells a compelling story. It's well recorded, played and sung. Good demo.
