Pro General Comments: There's a lot of really cool stuff working in this song for me. It really sticks with me, it's a great hook - and the melody is strong. The lift in the chorus is strong. I'll be singing the chorus in my head for quite awhile, and that's half the battle. My main concerns are two fold - 1) I worry that it falls in between genres, it's not really blues, it's not really country - so I thought it might fall in alt country/americana/folk because it has kind of a cool Texas country thing to it. It also feels like some of the 1970s/early 80s renegade country and pop. Those are good things, because you have created a really timeless melody. My 2) concern is that the recording quality and vocal quality need some work. The vocal needs to be tuned, and maybe get a few more passes for phrasing and comfort. The music doesn't quite hit the pocket it could to sound super pro. But the heart of your song is truly there, and that's what matters. I enjoyed the listen. It may help me on future submissions to understand what genre you'd like to be in so I can help you craft a more modern approach to that genre. Right now I could see this working in Texas roadhouses or a folk club, so it's got a lot of opportunity.

Quote From Pro: A throwback with universal longing at the heart of the hook, this is solid, timeless songwriting.
