Jason Sturgeon has been featured here on CML before. He’s not the most well-known artist, but he keeps putting out great songs and great videos. You never know when one of these will breakthrough and he’ll find that missing hit song.
Check out The Cover…
The Cover – Jason Sturgeon
It’s a great song.
From the opening music you know this song is going to be upbeat and something catchy. After listening to a few of the song’s lyrics you realize it’s a story about what’s on the inside of people and not just on the outside…they own cover.
And yet that’s how we often judge people. The Cover is about taking a look past the bumps and bruises we all have on the outside. We don’t often look at what’s on the inside. We are quick to see the bad and don’t take enough time to see what’s on the inside of folks. We don’t look past what might be something minor to see that a person might be worth getting to know.
It’s a great take on life and people. Jason Strugeon has a great song here. The first thing I always think about when it comes to song is the melody. I try to see if the song is catchy enough for a new artist to gain that initial attention. It seems the best way to break out in the country world is to have something that’s snappy, fun, and easy to sing along with. That’s not always the case, but that’s what I see. With The Cover I think Jason has one of those songs people like to sing along with. It’s fun. It gives people something they can relate to.
In fact, everybody can relate to the story of The Cover. We’re all sinners. We’ve all done bad things, but we’re not all bad people. We have our roughed up covers and that’s just the way it’ll always be. The people that love us. Our friends and family; the people that matter, they took the time to look at the pages on the inside of our lives and they know we’re good. They know we mean to do good by others.
That’s what I think life is all about. We make mistakes. We learn. We continue on and as life goes we acquire more great pages in our book. Maybe that’s a little deep for what Jason had in mind for the song, but that’s how I’m interpreting it. Jason has been on the New Country Songs on CML here before. I’m starting to really like his music and his latest album is definitely worth your time if you are looking for something to listen to this weekend.
Check him out and if you’ve seen him before in concert please share your experience. I might be a new Jason Sturgeon fan. With songs like The Cover he might just find his way into more people’s playlists. The song is certainly good enough for that.
