Turn it up!
This is Keith's latest track, "Never Comin' Down", the second single to be released off his TENTH studio album. The first was "Coming Home"; a duet he did who pop singer Julia Michaels.
Personally, I have been a fan since he debuted his first self-titled album in 1999. Jeez, that sounds like it was just a few years ago, but not so much. I digress. "Where The Blacktop Ends" was one of the big songs off that CD, and it was one of my go-to jams as I entered adulthood. I remember driving around Edmonton that summer, windows rolled down and his guitar-loaded tracks cranked right up.
It's funny how music can bring you right back to a certain place and time, triggering memories of smells, even. Music can be so powerful, it's no wonder we play it at major events in our lives as a soundtrack. Example: "Go Rest High On That Mountain" from Vince Gill absolutely slays me because it was played at my Mom's funeral, and every time the first few piano bars are played, I feel the sting of my eyes watering. It brings me immediately back to that morning of the service, and still to this day, I can only listen to the first 30 seconds or so because of the strength of the feelings associated with the song.
What songs do that for you? Are there any that make your toes start tapping right off the bat, or that you wail along to? (I use the word wail only because that's how I've heard my … singing, described.) Tell me what song does it for you!
