Radney Foster has put out some great music over the years. He’s probably considered to be an independent artist at this point, but I would say that if that’s the case he’s been one of the most successful independent artists of all time. He’s had bit hits in the past, but some of the music he’s put out over the last few years has been really good. Here is one of his latest songs.
A little tip of the hat to CMT Edge for this one.
California – Radney Foster
This song certainly has an old school feel for it. The song seems to be about a fleeting love that occurred some time ago in the great west. It seems like two people fell in love out there, but what brought them out there ultimately pulled them apart.
Some people are just kind of gypsies that way. They can find themselves together even if they’re not sure why. They live in the moment and enjoy each other, but then they feel the pull again to go their separate ways. They always have this pull to keep moving. They’re always looking for something new and something different even if they have something good going on right now.
I don’t know what it is, but that’s the way some people are and this song seems to capture that feeling. It’s a great song with a completely different feel than what you’ll get in other places in country.
What do you think?
