This 50's-style country shuffle, completed with the twin fiddles of Becky Buller and Laura Orshaw, is composed by singer and bassist Jon Goldfine, along with bluegrass songwriter Rick Lang. It's a toe-tapping, feel-good song that offers a very different attitude within the lyric.The unfortunate character simply cannot get a break as he recollects occasions he has been let down. This song is a departure from typical Henhouse Prowler material and they enjoyed recreating this classic feel.
Jon Goldfine shares: "It was an honor to write this with Rick Lang - our first cowrite together! I brought it to the table as song based on my own real-life follies of a teenager-early 20something’s quest for everlasting love, and learning to anticipate the inevitable heartbreak to come. A few decades of perspective on those relationships allowed for a comical, tongue-in-cheek spin on the stories. While the end result may be slightly more fictionalized (to protect the innocent, of course), it was Rick’s expertise that helped hone in on what I initially wanted the song to capture."
"Putting this tune together was a blast!", says producer Stephen Mougin. "It’s always a challenge to re-create the authentic feel of those early country shuffles, and the Prowlers really dug in and made it happen. From the stride-up-beat pulse (ala. Pig Robbins) to the twin fiddle licks of Becky and Laura (ala. Tommy Jackson), completed with walking bass (ala. Bob Moore), this track has it ALL!"
The band is completed by Ben Wright on banjo, Chris Dollar on guitar/vocal, and Jake Howard on mandolin and vocals.
