John Paul White “I Wish I Could Write You A Song” – Listen

The new single from John Paul White’s upcoming new album ‘The Hurting Kind‘, due for release on April 12th, finds the singer in the throws of a love that he cannot fully express.  On a  track with an orchestration as big as anything Roy Orbison  attempted he sings “I wish I could write you a song /  I have been trying so long / Every rhyme seems wrong” in a voice dripping with the melancholy of this emotion.
