It’s still cool to me that Kevin Costner has a country band. Well, I don’t even know if they identify as a country band. I don’t think they care about identities. Maybe it’s folk or Americana. I think they just want to create some cool music and tour around and play it for folks.
Kevin is doing pretty well on the acting side of things too right now. He has a new TV show coming out next year that sounds pretty cool.
But this summer they released a new single and I missed it at first, but now I’ve had a chance to check it out.
Love Shine – Kevin Costner & Modern West
I think this is a reflection on life. Could be modern times, but it could probably have been during any era. It’s also vague enough so it’s not necessarily about politics or anything like that. It could be just about looking inside yourself and finding some direction.
I think the theme is loving each other. Looking at each other and respecting and loving and knowing that we’re all part of the human family. There’s no room for any kind of hate. Love is the thing that carries people through to the next generation or to the generation seven steps away from now.
The music almost has a little dark feel to it. A little spooky. So maybe I’m off on the meaning of the lyrics. You’ll have to listen and let me know your thoughts.
Anyway, always good to have Kevin and his guys out there making country music.
