I understand that we spend a lot of time talking about music intended for kids, but today I want share a song that was inspired by kids. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors is a band from Tennessee that has had their music featured on numerous television shows (Deadliest Catch, Grey’s Anatomy, Justified, Parenthood and others) over the past couple of years, but large mainstream success has for the most part eluded them.
The song is called “Live Forever” from their most recent album, Chasing Someday. To quote Mr. Holcomb directly “I wrote it as a letter to my nieces and nephew, who stole my heart a long time ago. I wrote it from the purest part of my soul, without a single thought to its commercial viability or whether or not my fans would like it.”
It’s a simple video of the band hanging out with their family and the kids that inspired the song.
