Hey everyone! Thanks for continuing to help me hone my songwriting, vocals, production, and music skills. I really take everything you guys say to heart and try to get better each time. That said, here is my latest attempt at it. I hope you guys will give it a few minutes of your time. Your feedback is much appreciated!!!!

 

Crazy (+4)

last night I had another dream, about us when we were 17, we fell love in at the Bradford County Fair

Yeah we ran wild and free like the Summer breeze, Your best friend friend had a crush me, you still deny putting bubble gum in her hair

I can’t forget those Friday night football games, you wore your hair in a pony tail, and my number painted on your face

Chorus:

We were crazy, We were young in love baby

It makes me smile every time, I pop cork off a bottle of wine and we dance, by candlelight across the living room floor

We never lost our sense of wonder, you know they say that age is just a number

Who says you can’t have that feeling anymore, 

and let’s prove em’ all wrong just one more time, we’ll turn on our favorite song and open up another bottle of wine

Chorus:

Cause we’re crazy, we’re young in love baby

Drunk kisses underneath the stars, fire flies in Mason Jars, bonfires and dancing in the rain

Shining deer on them old back roads, Bud Light and fishing poles, I can see it all like yesterday

remember when your momma didn’t want us together

aw girl look at us now, we’re building our own forever

Chorus:

we’re crazy, we’re young in love baby

A sugar high from Big League Chew, That’s the story of me and you, some memories never fade away

Remember when they said it aint gonna last, yeah cause we’re crazy, I’m in love with ya baby

Very nice. Much more polished than the stuff I post. Certainly brings Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley and others to mind with their knack for putting story telling to music. The song paints a good picture for my imagination to fill in details. So, I’d say well done–I can hear this on a country station–that is, when my wife forces me to listen to the stuff–a lot of songs like this out there, but, hey, as Paul McCartney sang, and made millions off of: “what’s wrong with another silly love song?” “What’s wrong with that?” hope i got that right.

You definitely have a talent for writing contemporary country songs, which is no easy task. Like Gordsd said, this song paints a good overall picture, and allows the listener to place the self into the situations. I would like to hear some vocal harmonies in the verses, to help drive them along more smoothly. This is really good work, and has the potential to be heard by a lot of people.

Wow. Thank you guys so much for listening and for the feedback. I know there aren’t many country music regulars on here so it means a lot that you guys took a moment to provide your thoughts. I completely agree with you on harmonies. I’ve tried singing them and just can’t do it. My ear just isn’t good enough in that dept. for some reason. Thank you very much!!! Musically, I’ve already got another idea that I’ve started (more rock sounding…think Jason Aldean style of guitar) so I can’t to hear what you guys think of it when I’m done!!

Cheers!

I don’t think you need to be a big fan of country music to recognize a good song or talent. Over the years I have seen many people come along with big dreams of making it only to be disappointed. I’m not saying you won’t feel the same disappointment but you at least have a fighting chance in a very competitive business. Brandon, you are a very talented songwriter and gifted performer. You should follow your dreams!

Touching piece. Professional production. You should have a contract (unless you already to, that is).
