Born and raised on a 100-acre farm outside the city limits of Carrollton, Georgia, Noah Hicks was no doubt “Raised on the Radio.” Growing up, some of Noah’s most prominent musical influences include Alan Jackson, George Strait, and Travis Tritt. It wasn’t until years after learning to play his first guitar that Noah was introduced to more contemporary country music by his older brother, riding dirt roads and lighting bonfires to the tunes of Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, and Luke Bryan. It was in those moments that Noah says he realized that country music was more than just drinking beers, it was a way of life.
A way of life that is perfectly described in Noah’s recent release, “Raised on the Radio.” This song was written by Noah’s fellow artist and friend Dylan Marlowe and it paints the picture of the values and life lessons that sometimes can only be learned through the speakers in an old pickup truck. Like how to live it up on a Friday night or how to grow from life experiences that can only be expressed in some of our favorite lyrics. Noah so eloquently sings about some his lessons learned, “Like how to drink a beer, or how to tell your dad you were with a girl but it wasn’t like that. Or where to go when you know you’re lost because God blessed the broken roads.”
If you grew up loving music then there’s a one hundred percent chance that this song will relate to you. It will not only take you back to your high school glory days, but will stay with you. Because let’s face it, everyday you could learn something new from the radio.
