Wasaga Beach, ON-based country artist Rebecca Rain has unveiled her single, “Sad Country Song.”
The track takes listeners on a journey from embracing the inherent fragility of our emotions, allowing us to seek solace in the music and then come out the other side that much stronger. Rebecca reminds listeners that it’s okay to be vulnerable and upset sometimes but to remember that you’re going to get through it and overcome life’s challenges.
The song stemmed from a conversation between Rebecca and her brother Jamie Stephens about how sad country songs are often a place they seek solace when going through hard times. The two got to writing and shared the song with producer and friend Doug Romanow to add the finishing touches. The three writers believe in the power of music and how it can not only be a solace but also a source of inspiration. “The singer might stop but your heart will stay strong, Cause you ain’t a sad country song.”
“Sad Country Song” begins with a soulful, slowed-down rhythm. Rebecca’s vocals convey a sense of vulnerability and emotional depth as she croons bittersweet lyrics, such as the chorus, “Take a minute, When it all goes so wrong, To let our your tears when that single comes on, The singer might stop but your heart will stay strong, Cause you ain’t a sad country song.”
The track also communicates a sense of nostalgia through the lyrics, “When you’re looking for something, and all hope is gone, Put on Brooks, Cash or Straight.” Any country music fans will quickly recognize those names and immediately think back to their music.
Overall, “Sad Country Song” is a beautifully written and performed song that evokes raw emotion and powerful lyrics that tell a story of how music can be healing and motivational.
