This is our first introduction to Keith Walker on CML. He has a catchy new song and we’re going to check it out and see what the response is. We live in such a cool time in country music where independent artists can reach a good sized audience and catch the attention of one of the big labels that can help shoot them into the mainstream.
Will that happen with Keith Walker? We’ll have to wait and see, but let’s check out this new song.
Friends With Boats – Keith Walker
This is the perfect kind of laid back song for summer. It’s about how life goes for most people out there. We all have some kind of stress in life. There are always problems hanging over our heads. Things may never seem to be going right, but there always seems to be a way to find a little way to have some fun.
And in this case it’s about having friends with boats. You can head out to the lake and have a good time just putzing around on a pontoon or doing a little fishing after the workday is over.
This song kind of reminds me of a time in my life about 9 years ago already. It was the summer right after college when you’re moving into the real adult world. You’re working a job. I had a buddy with a boat. Nothing special, but it could pull a wakeboarder. And every day after work a few of us would head out there and blow off some steam.
This song is catchy. I like it. What do you think?
