Country Comfort - Rainy Day Song Lyrics
When artists have a certain degree of laudable talent in their arsenal, expectations can be quite high whenever they endeavor to branch out on their own. Good thing Tim Jones and Leroy Powell, the dynamic songwriting and performing tandem known collectively as Whiskey Wolves of the West, knew just how to harness the chops they honed as prime progenitors of the new Nashville sound. Helping forge the creative lane now occupied by the likes of Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson also opened up a seam for the pair to charge through themselves to put forth a concisely focused, seven-track melting pot of an album aptly named Country Roots, which is set for release on March 2, from Rock Ridge Music. To modify a well-known country crossover lyric, Country Roots takes us home to the place where our ears truly belong. And that home happens to be right square in the heart of the gut-honest, genre-defying music now being made by Whiskey Wolves of the West. Their sound is one that can only be earned by a thousand nights in smoky bars and a million miles on bald bus tires, which means the Whiskey Wolves are disciples at what could be the last supper of country music. It features the dynamic songwriting and performing tandem of Tim Jones vocals, guitar and Leroy Powell vocals, guitar, bass, pedal steel, clavinet, keys, harmonica , two prime progenitors of the new Nashville sound.

quotes to make you think about your life
To be sure, these are not your typical Nashville story-songs. Rather the exist in the tradition of not only the Outlaw Country movement but also, more recently, the studied earnestness of Red Dirt artists. These performers seek to return the emphasis to the songs themselves, crafting relatable tales of the everyman without pandering to a lifestyle aesthetic. Rather than adhering the paint-by-numbers approach adopted by the majority of mainstream contemporary country artists, Cobb and others borrow a page from the previous generation, setting everyday, even commonplace issues to song. Yet it forgoes affectation in favor of a low-key lyrical sincerity and matter-of-factness that exists at the heart of all great country music. Simple, unfettered and relevant, this approach harkens back to the idea of the genre being that of the common people. More so than anything, this type of songwriting reflects the lives of the often marginalized Middle Americans whose hard-scrabble existence is weirdly appropriated for commodification by a Nashville-based music industry trafficking in a lifestyle aesthetic more than deep-rooted social and musical traditions.
