The song will be featured on his forthcoming his major label debut recordFamily Ties, which is due out everywhere on September 22nd.
The tracklist features 19 songs, including some we’ve heard Charles play already like “Miner Imperfections” and “Two Weeks Gone,” along with a cover of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
This past Friday, he dropped a preview of the new album in his Family Ties Sampler EP, which includes four brand new tunes from the record that certainly have me looking forward to hearing the project, which Charles says focuses on his personal life and love for his family (hence the album title):
“I had to get back to the basics. I decided I was going to write about my life and my family. It’s where my heart was guiding me: to be super personal and dig right into the weeds of my life.”
And “Cue Country Roads,” a solo write by Godwin, has such badass production and I know will be an absolute thrill to hear at his live shows, which are absolutely incredible.
All about getting back to his home in the West Virginia, while taking advantage of a familiar victory cry from his beloved West Virginia Mountaineers, I can see this one becoming a quick fan-favorite due to the upbeat nature of it and reference to the beloved John Denver classic (which he’ll also cover on the tracklist).
