Nick Tressler Raised Rowdy Founder
Thoughts, man they always get to you, Be it positive thoughts of encouragement or second thoughts about decisions made. It often is time inside ones own head space that really allows a person to grow, to learn about yourself, to heal. Thoughts are the fuel for the new single by Brett Sheroky. “It Ain’t My Place” explains the struggle of trying to get over of a lost relationship, even if the idea of separation or calling it quits was your own.
The song tells the story of letting your thoughts take you down the road of wonder. Wondering not only what that person is doing or how they are doing, but how their life is without you in it. The track keys in on the “Place” as in the actual place they called home, but also talks about it not being the narrators “Place” to tell that person what they can or cannot do. Brett told us “I truly love writing songs. I love thinking of a hook, reverse engineering the lyrics to tie into it, chasing down a melody and vibe, using double entendres, turning phrases, trying to beat each line with a better one…all of it. This song embodies every single one of those things for me. I really hope folks can appreciate all of the intentional effort that went into writing it.”
Brett uses this style of writing as well as any we know and he really nailed it with this track which he co-wrote with Charley Woods. The song really let’s the lyrics breath and do the heavy lifting with only light instrumentation to help tell the story. The new track fits perfectly with the new tour that Brett is a part of with Phil Vassar.
Aptly titled, the Stripped Down Tour just kicked off and if you have a chance to see Brett and Phil on the road you shouldn’t miss it. Brett’s catalog is filled with catchy tunes that make you really feel something and at the end of the day isn’t that what we are all looking for?
