This is the LAST New Music Tuesday before the national release date (Tuesday, July 20th) of Youth Is In Our Blood…. sadness. I know. But never fear, the Guv’nahs machine is rolling along at full steam. Have you already gotten your copy of the new album? http://www.thedirtyguvnahs.com/merch.html
We SOLD OUT of the Limited Edition copies last week, but a new shipment came in and we have lowered the price to $12… which includes shipping and handling. The last two songs to talk about on the CD are The Country and Recovery. Recovery was written by Aaron Hoskins, Guv’nahs drummer fandango, so he’ll be chiming in about that tune.
Recovery was the last song we completed before going to Woodstock. Its about going through a difficult point in your life, and feeling like you’re not yourself. When you feel lost, its tough to find a way out. Ultimately, we aren’t bound to the past, and we do control our future. Things are hard for all of us, but if we’re smart, we don’t go through them alone. This song is about the importance of community, faith, and family to get through the rough parts. Alone we aren’t much. Together we’re loud.
The Country. I’ll keep this short and sweet. Sometimes people love each other but they just don’t live at the same speed, and it’ll never work out. Fact: Not all relationships last forever. This one ended on the side of the road at a rest stop between Nashville and Birmingham. Big thanks to Jill Andrews for singing harmony on the last half of this track. If you haven’t heard her yet then you might need to take 5 minutes and download everything she has right now. www.jillandrewsmusic.com
In closing, let me say your emails and facebook messages of encouragement have been PIVOTAL in encouraging us to move forward with this band. We are having the time of our lives, but the honest truth is that it is really tough to work all week and then be on the road Thursday – Sunday playing shows all of the Southeast and Northeast. Hearing from you guys really means more than you can understand… so thanks.
I want yall to know from the bottom of our hearts, that following your dreams is absolutely worth it. Even if you fall on your face. You learn a lot about yourself and about the world when you put all of your skin in the game. We believe that music still matters, and we won’t give up until we see this trashcan dream come true.
Over the next 6 weeks, we’re playing shows in 8 different states. See you there!
