It’s been a few years since the members of Trick Pony went their own ways.
Former member, Ira Dean, has been busy writing songs for other artists. Now he’s ready to step behind the mic and release his own solo material. He’s teaming up with the good folks at Average Joe’s to promote the new song Something About A Sunday. Check it out…
Something About A Sunday – Ira Dean
Ira Dean really hits a home run with Something About A Sunday. The track is about redemption. It’s about a man that’s been living the hard life, lost in the world of drinking and only thinking about the moment.
In the song, a man wakes up on a Sunday morning. His head his pounding from the night before. He thinks about the woman that he doesn’t even know. She’s already left him alone. He doesn’t even remember her name. All he knows is the place smells like stale beer and he’s all alone again. There seems to be nothing going right in his life. He can’t get things to work out. He can’t figure out his life. He’s lost.
But for the man there is Something About A Sunday that gives him hope. He hears bells in the background as all the church goers are on their way to listen to sermons. The thought of it all gives the man some hope that he can change. Maybe he will, maybe he won’t. At this moment he feels like he can, but as soon as Sunday is over he’s thinking he’ll probably fall back into his normal way of life.
Songs like Something About A Sunday are pretty unique to country music. There is pain in the song. There is pain in the music. When you listen to this song you think about your own life and if you can change things that might not be ideal. You think about the mistakes you make and how you can learn from them and make things better.
Ira Dean has really found a great way to gain the attention of the country audience. It’s a great song and a great way to break out on the country singles charts. I’m hoping this song gets some attention.
I’m a firm believer that people only change if they take action themselves. If they really don’t want to; if they are more content complaining about their life they have already lost all hope. It seems Ira has decided to make a change and give it a go as a solo artist.
Go get it, Ira Dean.
