Kelsey Waldon “Sunday’s Children” – Listen

Kelsey Waldon calls it as she sees it on this, her new single from her new album ‘White Noise/White Lines‘, released on John Prines’ Oh Boy Records.  That came about after Waldon moved from the wonderfully named Monkey’s Eyebrow, Kentucky to Nashville.  And if ‘Monkey’s Eyebrow to Nashville‘ isn’t a song title in the making we don’t know what is (we’ll settle for a free credit on it).

Speaking of ‘Sunday’s Children‘ Kelsey Waldon has explained the motivation to write the song: “Essentially, [the] tune was inspired by how I felt about people using religion and God in the name of hate.  I grew up in the Southern Baptist church, and I was really discouraged to hear so many people instil fear in the hearts of people, that just because somebody isn’t like them, they would be afraid of this person.”  As she says in the song – that kind of attitude is just bullshit.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
