This song sounds like driving from Kansas City to Denver on Interstate 70, in a good way, with all the expectation of seeing the Rocky Mountains at the end of a long drive.
This song sounds like what would happen if "Every Day is a Winding Road" were sung by Darius Rucker. Good work boys!!
Reminds me of Hays America. Half way between Denver and KC. Great song!

Nice beat. Makes you want to dance!
Yeah, we have had people get up and dance when we do this one live. Love to see that, but when we get to the bridge in 7/4 time they end up twisting an ankle!
I LOVE this song!!! It would make that long, long 1-70 drive so much more pleasant to have this one jamming on the radio....Great work you guys!!

Way to go, all the way from Germany!
Not bad...country is not really my thing, though.
Seems like there's some weird noise in the bass at the beginning. Maybe you should redo the MP3?
I coul see dancing to it.

Actually I don't think this is country or even alt country whatever that is.

bonsotheclown - that bass sound is called double bass pheromones.
Cool song! Sent my imagination on a trip thumbing across the U.S. Feeling free and easy! I certainly could see the many trips I have done between Colorado and Kansas City - several times a year! Chewing on some straw! :)

Good song guys. You lost me on the bridge though, it lost its momentum and the cymbal swells gave it a disjointed feel and took over...too much. I also would have done a fade out to continue that nice vibe instead of the cutoff with the bass note hanging there. But overall, a good feel. I like it.

goodcook: The bridge has great momentum, though I can see how the cymbals get a little washy. Maybe less Keith Moon, more Louie Bellson would have been better. We'll have to agree to disagree on the ending because we love it. Fade-outs are cliche. Sticking the landing...that's pretty cool.
AV - fadeouts aren't always cliche, sometimes they work very well. Sticking the landing is cool, I'll grant you that! And upon another listen tonight, I like your ending. But, I didn't want that nice groove to end that quickly, that was my point. I was really enjoying it and was very into it thinking these guys are great then and suddenly it stopped. My advice was only because I liked it so much and didn't want it to end! Glad you agree about the cymbals, if they are mic'd individually, just bring them down a bit in your mix...that would help. I love the cymbal work in the chorus. Thanks for your feedback, that's why music is so great. We can all discuss it and have fun!

All good things must come to an end. Leave 'em wanting more, that's showmanship! You have a good ear - the cymbals weren't individually mic'd. We relied on two overheads to capture the cymbals. This song was recorded live, all parts at once, in one take. That was deliberate. Our main objective was to capture the vibe, which we did. The cymbal work in the chorus is a variation on an old text called Advanced Funk Studies. See your point on the mix - could bring the cymbals down a bit in the bridge.
Well, I never said I know everything and you guys are right about the ending. I like the fact that it was recorded live, it sounds like it. You can't get that groove to sound that way when you do them as overdubs. O-dubs sound...well, like overdubs. Keep up the good work.

Hey, dad great intro on the bass!!!! I really think next week this song should be number one, or two! This just makes me want to dance to it the whole time. Caleb, keep up the good guitar work! Uncle Anthony great drums!!!

I like it, even the ending. Great job for a one-take, live recording.
Sounds like your daughter is proud of you and for good reasons.
Keep up the good work guys.
