Another new addition on my blog...Tune Up Thursday. I thought it would be good to go "off the beaten path" by introducing songs that I personally enjoy. You may or may not have heard them on radio. However, there is something about that particular song that I have a desire to tell others about. We always hear about people complain about the direction music is going at times, but your rarely hear folks say "hey, listen to this person/song."
This week's pick is Lexington, Kentucky, natives Fifth on the Floor. If you know me, I've been a fan of their music for a while. Glad to call them friends and always love to support what they do. Back in February 2013, they had their album release party for "Ashes & Angels." While standing there talking to a buddy, the band started playing the song "What For." It stopped me in my tracks and I began to listen. I bought the album and continued to play that song on repeat. The song, written by Matty Rogers, talks about losing both grandparents and a brother and coping with the losses. If you want a lesson on songwriting, this is a start.
You can download "What For" over at I-tunes, or perhaps head on over to www.fifthonthefloor.com and purchase the entire album, along with a tshirt or other assorted goodies.
