Did you know that Kevin Costner has a band?
And it’s kind of a country band. If you listen to their music there is definitely a mix of genres. One would be American Folk, but there is definitely some interesting things there that make you think country music too.
Kevin is obviously mostly known for his movies. He’s always been one of my favorite actors. Even when he gets a little flak I still root for him.
This song isn’t all that new, but I think I missed it when it first came out so we’re going to revisit it here. I hope you like it.
Alive In The City – Kevin Costner & Modern West
How about that? Kevin Costner singing a country song and singing it really well.
I think this is a love song. It seems to be about recognizing in a moment that you love someone. That you’re going to be there no matter what comes in life. Things might be bad. Those bad things happen to everyone, but if you’re with the right person things will always be much better than they are bad.
I like the music and melody of this one. It kind of continues to lift up your spirits slowly throughout the song. It builds a bit and brings it back. Then it builds slowly again and by the end of the song you feel good. You feel good about love and you feel good about life.
It’s pretty cool just from a country song perspective and it’s cool from the perspective that it’s Kevin Costner and his band.
