Missin’ You Crazy – Jon Pardi
This song has that rolling feeling. You can imagine yourself sitting in a car with the top rolled down as you cruise along the roads of some country town. I like that kind of feeling. There is a freeness about it. There is a sense of fun while being young and crazy in love.
Of course the song is about love. The guy in the tune is out on the road away from the girl he loves. He’s been away from her for too long and he just wants to get back to her. All he’s thinking about is being with her. He’s ready to give up everything so they can be together all the time.
If you’ve ever been away from your family for a long time you have probably felt this way. It seems like in today’s world there are a lot of jobs that keep folks away from each other. We spend most of our days working and it gets crazy. There isn’t much flexibility in life today. We’re slaves to the bills we have each month and it can be draining.
Maybe Jon has the right idea. Maybe we need to throw it all away and just get back to loving the ones we’re with. I don’t know if that’s possible, but it makes for a great song.
What do you think?
Is this song a winner for the country newcomer?
