Here is a new artist for us here at CML. Well, it’s the first time that I’ve been introduced to Tyler Joel and his music. I have to say that it’s a pretty solid first impression. It kind of has a hint of ’90s rock in there, but it seems to fit right in with country music today.
You’ll have to let me know if you’re a Tyler Joel fan in the comments, but I’ll be going into this song with a fresh impression.
Long Way Home – Tyler Joel
I wasn’t sure what the song would be about from the title, but after listening to the lyrics you get an idea pretty quick that the song is about looking at where you’ve come from.
It’s a story song. The guy is riding through his hometown. Instead of taking the usual route back to his house he decided to take the long way home to all the places where he’s spent his days growing up.
Have you ever done that?
It’s kind of a weird feeling to see all the places where you spent time. You might look at the house where you grew up. You might see the place where you hung out with your best friends. You might see the parking lot where you first kissed your first girlfriend.
There are so many things in life that kind of define who we are or kind of create the ingredients that lead us to the people we are today.
This is a good song. It’s something that most people can relate to and it’s catchy and has a good melody. I like it.
