    Default "Dead End Town" - original tune

    Here's an original song called "Dead End Town." You'll be enduring my vocals (hopefully I'll find somebody good later), but try to imagine Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp's voice in my place and it will be 80% better.

    I've been trying to get into Jason Isbell, and his song "Cumberland Gap" seems to be hugely popular with his audience, and it reminded me of "My Hometown" by Bruce Springsteen, so I wanted to write something along a similar line.

    I'd like to take a moment to thank my backup singers, who are also me.

    If you know a Heartland rock type of guy on the way up, tell him I've got his career-making single right here!

    I love it! Very cool, musically and lyrically. I dig that '' roots rock' kind of sound, after years of trying​ to deny it...Haha. There's a huge market for this type of thing. I hope you find the right artist(s) to work with!

    Thanks, Robbie. Yep, I'm going to have to find some real singers to do this. This is like making punch, then putting a turd in the punchbowl and saying, "But the rest of the punch tastes good, right? Look around the turd!"

    This is the song that inspired this. He's done this song on a lot of TV shows so it seems to be a highlight. I thought, "I can make that kind of song, can't I?" He's taking Bruce Springsteen's New Jersey thing and transplanting it to Alabama.
