These three women are some of the most successful songwriters today, with Hemby best known for her work with Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town, Liz Rose with Taylor Swift, and Nicolle Galyon with RaeLynn. By themselves, they are responsible for some of the best country songs today. But what happens when they all come together? This song proves that the result is simply magical.
The lyrics are a love letter to music, and although it seems like this kind of song has been overdone, it's rare to hear a song like this that is done really well. The main focus of this song is to bring attention to how prevalent music is in our everyday lives. "If there was no music / what would remind us of ourselves?" Hemby sings at the beginning of the chorus. She then lists all the ways music is so incorporated and ingrained in our daily lives: "what would you drive to / cry to / remember goodbye to." This song is simple. It's not making some grand statement, but what it does successfully do is remind us why we all love music so much. It reminds artists why they do what they do. And it reminds listeners why we pay attention to music, and why we spend our money and time on it. Those are the most powerful songs, and here's hoping that this song has a long and impactful life.
