East Coast Acadian country artist Laurie LeBlanc has unveiled his new single, “All In”.
The fourth release from LeBlanc’s 2021 ECMA and Music NB Country Recording of the Year-nominated album, When It’s Right, It’s Right, “All In” goes all out for a rollicking good time over a high stake poker tournament for two.
With its steam train, chugging beat, and playful interchange of tasty guitar, pedal steel, fiddle, and piano riffs, “All In” sounds like full-on Saturday night fun, and it’s no accident that it does.
“The idea of the song came while playing a game of poker one Saturday Night,” recalls LeBlanc. “The story is about a guy and a girl at the final poker table. The hot babe is making a pretty cute poker face at her opponent, and he thinks they have something special going on.”
“All In” is the one song that LeBlanc co-wrote for his latest album with his wife and manager, Jeannette. So, who won the real poker game that inspired their collaboration? While we may not know that outcome, LeBlanc does place bets for us on how the cards will play out in the song with this semi-spoiler.
“He’s getting more and more interested in the girl thus losing focus on the game.”
“All In” also signifies success in a new focus for LeBlanc.
“I’ve written numerous French songs, and most of them are based on fun ideas that I hope make people smile,” he says. “So, I wanted to try to do that in English.”
