Country music more than anything is about relationships. For good or for bad, people and the emotions that come with them are what guide us through this journey called life. The power of music, specifically country music releases emotions that are often hard to explain in written words alone.

Sometimes it takes a melody and heartfelt words and sometimes it’s the look a man or a woman give to each other to really express a feeling. Often it takes this whole experience to truly get lost in what is happening in your world and be totally encompassed by something.

In “I’ve Been Around” Joe and Martina stop time. This song and the way it is played between a man and wife makes the world stop spinning on it’s axis for a few moments. It’s an uncommon occurrence in this fast paced world we live in. So when it happens, you need to take time and enjoy that happy tear welling up in your eye.

Here is to love, love lost, love found, love earned, whatever it is, packaged in a song that touches your heart in a way only REAL country music can. Thank you Joe and Martina for sharing this piece of your heart with us. Thank you for sharing your love for each other with the world. It is a rare love indeed.

The track was written by Joe with Brendan Roberts and Lisa Daye and man if it doesn’t tell a story. We have a feeling this is going to be the song that Joe and Martina won’t be able to play a show without laying their hearts out for all of us to see. Here is to the next time we get to see that in person.

I’ve Been Around

(Joe Costa, Lisa Daye, Brendan Roberts)

I’ve Honky Tonked in Fort Worth, smoked in Denver
Had a wild night in LA I can’t remember
I’ve made people happy and let em down..
I’ve been around

I’ve swam in the Ocean, climbed a Mountain
Helped folks believe what they were doubting
Made my mark in more than one small town
I’ve been around

Been around the world
Loved a few girls
But your the only one to settle this ole rambler down…
I’ve been around

I’ve rolled with the tide in Alabama
Hugged a few curves south of Atlanta
My boots always land on the ground
I’ve been around

Been around the world
Loved a few girls
But your the only one to settle this ole rambler down…
I’ve been around

Spent a Blue Ribbon night in Milwaukee
Drank a million miles of truck stop coffee
But when it comes to lovin me you wear the crown
I’ve been around

Been around the world
Loved a few girls
But your the only one to settle this ole rambler down…

You helped this lost soul to be found
You took a lost soul to where I am now
I’ve been around
