    I wrote this song for my granddaughter last year, and just now finished recording it.

    The songs I write usually have "made up" lyrics, you know, something to go between the chords and the licks :) but every once in a while I find that I actually have something I want to say, and this was one of those times.

    Hope you guys like it.

    Wow!

    The reason no one has replied to your post is
    because they are still on the floor, knocked out
    on how great it sounds!

    This is beautiful.

    Being a grandfather myself since about 18 months, I can understand that you had to write this song. It definitely feels different when watching the grandchildren grow up than your own children. She is lucky to have a grandfather who writes her such a song!

    I like your song. The band plays very good, and the singer (yourself?) makes a very good job and has a decent voice. One critical point: the guitar solo. While the solo is nice if you look at it isolated, it sounds a little like a foreign matter in a country song.

    But again: very good work, and hug your granddaughter!

    Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment. Yes, that's me singing. I get your point about the solo, but it is in fact exactly what I asked our guitar player for, I wanted something that stands out a bit. But yes, it is a bit "uncountryish", but hey, it works, you noticed it, right? :)

    Seemed to fit to me. It's not like this is in the traditional country format.

    I'm not sure how I missed this one. I would label this as.....fantastic!
    Being a Granddad myself, (they call me Pops), I completely relate to your message.
    I love everything about this. The recording is excellent. All of the instrumentation sounds first class. The tune itself is one of the best because it came from your heart. Real music.
    Nice voice and delivery. Of course, the guitar stuff is very cool.
    Well done Sir. Your family and granddaughter especially should be very proud of you!

    Well, well, this states that your band plays live as well as in the studio. It just appeared to me that the guitar solo was less "wild" than on the studio track; I hope, that has nothing to do with my comment :) !! You really are a good singer, Sir! And I like your pedal steel player (not as a person, of course, as I don´t know him, but what he contributes to the band´s music and sound.
