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.

Musicians, songwriters especially, often struggle in relationships. We're generally very introverted and in our heads. We know what to say to our significant other though often cannot. We're often trapped in that zone with our art, and it drives a wedge in a relationship, especially with writers who drink in that time-honored tradition of Hemingway. Often what we find is that the whiskey loves us, for better or worse. That's where this came from. To the women who can't love us, the whiskey does.

About a woman in a failed relationship who's very cut off from her emotions and just wishes her significant other would break up with her and let her go. She feels trapped and hopefully yet wishes he would "hurt" her, in a sense, at least from his perspective, by just leaving her.

Politicians preach that taking our freedoms away as Americans is good for the entire world who get to live here, and so the path to equity for all humanity is for me and you not being allowed to speak, think or act how we choose. I don't agree. Big disagree.

My girlfriend won't let me post songs I've already written on this site. She doesn't like it. So I told her to give me any random title she could think of, and I'd write one on the spot in live-time just to post to see what happens. This is what's going to happen to her if she keeps trying to tell me what to do. I'll leave and she'll cry with those crimson eyes. Wrote this in about 3 minutes. Meh. It rhymes though.
