Pro General Comments: From the title of the song I really had no idea where this sonic adventure would lead. The opening banjo lick is inviting and leads right into the first line of the song. From there the narrative unfolds. The lyric allows many visuals or the listener to recreate the scenes of civil war times from the perspective of a Virginia homesteader (being from Virginia I could really see the images int his song). As the story progresses the listener is taken through scenes of youth, war, strife and some remorse.Here is where I get a bit confused. Mr. Covington describes the songs as contemporary country. In my professional opinion, that is not the audience for this song. I would humbly suggest Americana as the correct format for the song. Americana encompasses folk, country, and many other indigenous music forms in which the song seems a better fit and stands a better chance to be heard and enjoyed by many.The sentiment I get from the song is heartfelt. Finding a family heirloom like this and taking the sentimental journey are very personal yet universal feelings. The write has a done an excellent job of guiding us along the way.Instrumentally the track works very well. At times the mix seems a little muddy but the lead and backing vocals are always out front and intelligible.Thank you for allowing me to the review and respond to your song. I wish you all the best!

Quote From Pro: The exceptional lyric allows many visuals or the listener to recreate the scenes of civil war times.
