Our buddy Gunner Scott just put out a new collection of songs. He’s been slowly making a name for himself. I think he’s been getting on the bill with some national acts.
I believe that Gunner is still doing the solo thing. It’s pretty cool that independent artists can get their music out the masses today with Spotify and YouTube and all those things.
Here is one that seems to be getting some attention for Gunner Scott.
Love Suicide – Gunner Scott
This one is pretty intense. I’ve been listening to the lyrics a few times through. The idea seems to be that this guy is really suffering with something. A lost love is ripping through him. It sounds like there is some kind of breakup going on and to this guy it feels like he’d rather break it off than hear what the woman has to say.
In that sense, he’s committing love suicide. He’s the one that’s going to call it off even though he’s not the one that would like too.
That’s kind of one way to go with it. I guess the other possibility would be that she is the one that’s breaking it off and the love is just being killed off even though it was going pretty good.
That’s some pretty intense stuff, but if you’ve ever been in love and had it ripped away suddenly then you know that there are some intense emotions that go with it.
There could be a lot more going on with this song. I like it. Good melody. Very country.
Let me know your thoughts.
