If there’s a silver lining in any of this Coronavirus bullshit, it’s that artists have been willing to share new music, old recordings, covers, and more while they’re stuck at home.
We’ve seen good stuff from Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen and more, hell even Garth Brooks practically broke the internet last night, but this one from Cody Jinks might give you the goosebumps you’ve been looking for.
He just released the acoustic demo version of “Never Alone, Always Lonely” a powerful track off his The Wanting record that he co-wrote with his wife Rebecca. It’s details just how difficult life on the road really gets sometimes. The sacrifices you make chasing a dream take a toll on you and often times, it’s the people that you love most that suffer.
“Being on the road, being at home. Being scared to death and feeling alone on a stage in front of a lot of people, or being at home, knowing your family needs your time. This one is another one my wife Rebecca helped me write because she’s seen both sides of my job: the guy on the road with the family at home, and the guy that just wants to be left alone that wants no one to see him – living in a whirlwind, fast train, and just trying to give everything to everyone you can and how taxing it is. This song is another representation of what our families go through.”
And there’s just something about stripping it all down that makes it hit even harder.
