Every once in a while there is a country song that comes along that sounds complete different than anything else. That’s what happened to me when I heard this track from Steve Richard. It’s just a fun song that is completely different and really fun.
Toothbrush – Steve Richard
This song had the chance of coming off completely wrong. If people had taken this song the wrong way they would have brushed it off as being stupid and immature, but the way it was written and performed make it work and work really well.
If you think back to when you were first dating your significant other there was probably a moment when they had a toothbrush at your place. They would spend a few nights and eventually it just made senese to have that spare toothbrush in the bathroom. That’s where the love started and you both probably realized that something was happening.
That’s what this song is about. It’s nothing sleazy or anything like that. The song is fun. it’s about love and the friendly melody makes you smile as Steve sings along about falling in love and how it often starts with that simple spare toothbrush in the cup in the bathroom.
The rest of our lives get off to interesting starts along the way. Things change and there are little moments when you realize that you’re about to start going down a different path. For many people that fall in love the change comes when that toothbrush arrives in the bathroom.

And if this track sounds familiar you may have heard it on This Is Country Music by Brad Paisley. It wasn’t a single, but it’s on that record.
