Brian Hendrix

Brian Hendrix still writes the old songs that Townes Van Zandt inspired in him. Catchy enough for the modern country audience, but meaningful and poignant as the lyrics that shaped an entire genre.

I was driving up the mountain to visit my brother and I remarked to my mother who was driving that the air must have dropped about 20 degrees halfway up. It was very chilly, and I guess this song sorta floated in on the wind, as the entire time at my brother's house I was looking to write this chorus down before I forgot it. The rest of the song built around that, and I'm really thrilled about the final result and how this came out in the end. This is a situation a lot of rural/southern people go through. People close to us don't feel stuck to the land; they feel drawn to the big city. We often wish they'd come on home, where they belong.

Wow. Can't believe I never posted this. Had this written for a while. I remember right after I thought of the main line here, which inspired the song, "Baby, you're mine," and the way I said it, that this was one of my top-20 songs before it was even finished. Yeah. I love this song. "Baby, you're mine... baby you're mine." The way it works for me, the second time is a lot quicker, which makes it sound very cool to sing. That's how I do it. Also, the verses immediately bleed into the chorus; that's just how it's set up.

This one is very much the "teen of the '90s" Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell, Layne Staley that lives in my head. It's not nihilistic; it just is what it is. No chorus. For me, it's just acoustic between verses. Though the last line of each verse does pick up in inflection and tempo, so maybe that counts.

Cleaning out my Notepad tonight; all the songs I've written as concepts and out of boredom. Some make me cringe; though some are actually quite good, now that I read over them. This one is a little story-time deal. The chorus is the two lines between verses, saying how he rode home alone.

Was just feeling creative one night in Notepad. The chorus would be the one line between verses. I think it's a decently written song. It's quite descriptive.
