I hope you’re enjoying the holiday weekend. We’re so proud to present our newest Song of the Month to you. "Long Shore” is off my recently released album, Bruce Robison & The Back Porch Band.
“Long Shore” was inspired by my love of gospel music and I think it has sort of an Al Green vibe to it. I’m not a religious person, but I’ve always thought there was something very honest about gospel and wrote the song with that in mind. When you listen to "Long Shore" versus today’s pop country radio, you have four amazing musicians playing simple acoustic instruments compared to 8000 computer tracks - and that stuff hurts my head. There’s a conviction to the spirituality of gospel music and I hope “Long Shore" reflects those influences.
On a separate note - I’m humbled by so many well wishes after being sick last month. I’m feeling about 95% at this point, but also like the luckiest man in the world. Thanks to everybody for supporting me and The Next Waltz. Hope to see you out on tour!
