Jason Tyler Burton’s song, taken from his new album ‘Kentuckian‘, and it’s another finely crafted look through another’s eyes. This time it’s the conflicted emotions of someone trapped in a one-horse town who, at the same time, feels so connected to it that he can’t leave.
It’s a conflict brought into sharp focus on lines like “we grow our own veggies make our own amphetamine / but our number one cash crop is crushed hope and dreams / … / oh God, to tell you the truth there’s no place I’d rather be, than here in these trees.”
