Streamsound Records' Dakota Bradley released his new single, "Won't Be Young Forever" to country radio earlier in April. The song, which is the follow up to his Top 50 single “Somethin’ Like Somethin’’ was written by Bradley, along with Lance Miller, and Brett and Brad Warren ("Felt Good On My Lips").
"Won't Be Young Forever," with its pop country feel, will immediately have you nodding your head and put you in a good mood. But what struck me most is that this is a youthful song that doesn’t mention the typical things we have come to expect from young males on the radio: tailgates, alcohol and girls shaking their moneymakers.
The single acknowledges what we all know, namely, we won't be young forever. But reminds us that if we keep an optimistic outlook and youthful spirit, we can be forever young. The lyrics encourage one to live life to the fullest, maybe make some mistakes, and take advantage of opportunities while you can because life is short. True words for anyone, no matter how old you are.
“Right now I got my whole life in front of me
Through these cheap sunglasses I see where I wanna be
I don't need much money
And I don't need no sleep
But I know this ain't how
It's always gonna be”
