Track premiere: Becky Warren “I’m Leaving” – Listen

 

Nashville singer songwriter Becky Warren’s debut solo album “War Surplus” is out now, the tale of a relationship between an Iraq bound soldier (Scott) and his girlfriend (June), and she’s sharing a bonus track with us “I’m Leaving” which is not included on the album. She told us: “I wanted a song where it was clear how much June struggles with the decision to leave Scott, both because she loves him and because she knows the way he’s been acting is a result of PTSD and she has a lot of sympathy for that.” The song was recorded with the string band Big Chimney, with Alex Sens on dobro, John Seebach on mandolin and acoustic guitar, Avril Smith on electric guitar, and Jeremy Middleton on upright bass.
