I’ve managed my stress this week by tinkering with an original song whose story has become apropos of my feelings about my country: “Easy On The Eye (Hard On The Heart).”

It’s a tune whose creation was conflicted, as well. I nearly threw this one away, convinced it wasn’t dynamic enough, and that I didn’t have enough to say. It pretty much just drives ahead, start to finish. I’m shouting the whole time.

But I’m okay with it today because that’s where I’m at. Let’s just consider this one a snapshot in (a wildly discouraging) time.

It’s a tune I arranged and wrote in collaboration with Jim Newcombe and Jordan Mogey. It’s laced with ES-295 tones through an old tweed Fender Pro. And I got to put some miles on the Sho-Bud Maverick pedal steel that Joe Jerkins passed along to me.

Thanks for listening. I hope the song brightens your day. ❤️


Easy on the eye, hard on the heart
She'll leave you breathless, tear you apart
She's like a fire when she starts
Easy on the eye, hard on the heart

She's somethin’ special, she's got a style
She'll turn you on, just like a dial
She'll leave you beggin’, down on your knees
Easy to love, so hard to please

So baby burn me in the night
If you’ll let me hold you tight
It won’t be forever, if you won’t get burned
But if you make me wait, I’ll wait my turn
