Man, was there anything that tasted better than a cold drink of water straight out of the hose on a hot day when we were kids?
Ok if we’re being honest it tasted like shit, but there aren’t many things more nostalgic for so many people than that hose water.
And that’s exactly the kind of nostalgia that Dillon Carmichael serves up with his new song, “Hose Water,” bringing back childhood memories like using street signs for target practice, taking your first dip of Red Man, and drinking straight from the water hose.
“Yeah, that’s just the way it was Way back where I grew up Bare feet on a county road Stealing kisses on a turn row It’s been a minute, yeah, it’s been a while But I’d drive a million two-lane miles To a town that’s smaller And gas was a dollar When the days got hotter You’d take a sip of that hose water”
Talking about the nostalgic power of the song, Dillon says:
“I first fell in love with ‘Hose Water’ because it brought back so many memories of growing up in small-town Kentucky. I spent many hot summer days drinking hose water, as well as playing in it for hours with my cousins and friends.
Whether you’re from a tiny town or the big city, the lyrics are relatable and will instantly transport you back to happier and simpler times. Especially right now, I think a nostalgic trip down memory lane is something we could all use.”
“Hose Water” was written by 90’s country powerhouse Rhett Akins, along with Scooter Carusoe and Paul DiGiovanni.
