I’ll admit it. My musical tastes are primarily stuck in the past. Classic rock and classic country is pretty much the only way I roll. There have been a couple surprising divergences from the mainstream like Southern Culture on the Skids, for example, but even those can’t honestly be described as careening wildly over a cliff into the unknown or avant-garde. And with kids coming into the picture, the musical selection in the house is becoming less and less under my influence. As such, I really haven’t been up to date on music in over a decade. Sadly, it’s probably even longer.
With that in mind, I honestly have no idea when I first heard this song. It was probably while shuffling through radio stations in my car trying to avoid commercials. There is nothing more to my story of this song. I heard it once and loved it. I understand it was a bit of a sensation with the younger folk back a few years. I’ll hold on to it as a reminder that every now and again I slip out of my nostalgic shell and discover something new and cool.
