And today, Riley’s blessing us with an acoustic rendition of Sammy Kershaw’s ’90s heartbreaker, “Yard Sale”.
Written by Larry Bastian and Dewayne Blackwell, Sammy included it as the third single from his 1991 debut album Don’t Go Near the Water. The song only peaked at #17 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1992.
I mean, what’s more brilliant than the metaphor of a yard sale to represent the end of a relationship and how all his ex’s old stuff has to go, as he watches people sort through the last of what they had, both literally and figuratively?
I’m getting emotional just thinking about it… do yourself a favor and check out Riley’s version.
“In the spirit of Kershaw……here is one of my favorites.”
