Today we’re looking back on a Doug Supernaw song that didn’t make it as a single.
The song, We’re All Here, is from Doug’s third album, You Still Got Me. The album came out in the Fall of 1995.
Up to that point it had been pretty interesting for Doug in country music. He kind of came out of nowhere to have some big hits in 1993 with Reno and I Don’t Call Him Daddy.
Then he changed labels before releasing You Still Got Me. This song is one of my favorites. The album had a huge hit single with Not Enough Hours In The Night, but there were some other really good songs on the record including We’re All Here.
It’s classic country to me. Doug always had the sound in his voice and style that made it seem like he was made for the honky tonks.
You could feel the genuineness in his songs and this one seems to be a great fit for him.
The song is about folks that are a little down on their luck. They’re maybe not fit for the real world, but they all have that in common and they’re able to get together to enjoy their situations as a big group.
I think Doug co-wrote this one with his band and that adds a pretty cool aspect. The catchy line is:
We’re all here/’cuz we’re not all there
I like that.
Whom among us doesn’t have a few screws loose especially these days? It can seem like you don’t fit in most places, but when you’re able to get together with your buddies at a bar it feels like you belong.
