Are you a country music fan? I have pretty much listened exclusively to country music since I was a kid. Not only do I enjoy the twang of the guitar, but have always appreciated the lyrics of the songs. Music and lyrics have a way of reaching straight through to my soul.
Keith Urban is not only an amazing musician, but an incredible lyricist as well. For instance, in his newest single, “Coming Home,” Urban decided to use the intro of one of his favorite Merle Haggard songs, “Mama Tried,” to build an entirely new song around it.
From the opening guitar riff inspired by Haggard to the bridge, co-written by Julia Michaels, the upbeat, fun song perfectly gets across the sentiments of home;
There’s nothin’ in the world that feels like
The place that I know where they all know me
I gotta get back now to the ones who love me
