With her second full-length album, Forever (released on February 16th), Arkansas-native Bonnie Montgomery beautifully recalls the golden age of country western music, capturing the stories and melodies that music lovers today still yearn for.
Recorded in Austin at Dale Watson’s Ameripolitan Studios, Forever, a concept album inspired by Willie Nelson’s Phases and Stages, focuses on life on the road, loss, and the mysticism of West Texas in its eleven-tracks that are both traditional and timeless.
Today, TDC is pleased to share one of those tunes, "Alleyways and Castles." Led by some fast-paced pickin', a frisky fiddle, and Montgomery's distinctive vocals, the lively "Alleyways and Castles" deals with coming to terms with the realities and the joys of the road - something that Montgomery, who has toured with Shovels and Rope, Hayes Carll, Billy Jo Shaver, Turnpike Troubadours, and Mike and the Moonpies among others, surely knows something about.
Montgomery had this to say about the song, "Alleyways is about the weary mornings and blissful nights on the country music highway, and passin' through Texarkana with a brand new plan.”
Stream, and share, the track above.
