Texas crooner Pat Waters & The Chainlink Band’s debut single "Crazy That Way" has recently been released to radio. The track is from their latest EP, Like A Radio, which was released in February.
"Crazy That Way," written by David Lee, Tony Lane and Eric Church (yes, that Eric Church), definitely has an early Church feel, even in the way Waters delivers the lyrics; lyrics that showcase the values of marriage, family, honesty and hard work. Waters conveys thoughts like "You can't hold your head up when you got your hand out" in a believable and relateble manner. He and the song are never preachy; he's more like the everyman who is seen as the "crazy" one for still believing in traditional values (quite often missing in today's society). While you are humming or toe tapping along, really listen to the lyrics because you might just find yourself recognizing that you too are "crazy that way."
"Well I don't care if you're a four door Chevy man
Red state or blue state we're all the same
I'd fight for your right to tell me I'm wrong
That's just me, and I'm crazy that way
Wrong is wrong and right is right
I do means I do and it don't mean I might
It could be that I've gone completely plum out of my mind"
