“Songs About Rain”

by Gary Allen

Well, this town has closed down way too early,
And there’s nothin’ to do.
So I’m drivin,’ around in circles, and I’m thinkin’ about you.
Today, I heard you got a new last name,
Sure didn’t know it was gonna’ hit me this way,
And the radio just keeps playin’ all these songs about rain.

Now there’s all kinda’ songs about babies and love that goes right,
But for some unknown reason, nobody wants to play them tonight,
Hey, I hope it’s sunny wherever you are,
But that’s sure not the picture tonight in my car,
And it sure ain’t easin’ my pain, all these songs like,

Rainy Night in Georgia, Kentucky Rain.
Here comes that rainy day feelin’ again,
Blue eyes cryin’ in the early mornin’ rain,
They go on and on, and there’s no two the same.
Oh, it would be easy to blame all these songs about rain.

Well, I thought I was over you ,
But I guess maybe I’m not.
‘Cause when I let you go looks like lonely is all that I got,
Guess I’ll never know what could have been,
Sure ain’t helpin’ this mood that I’m in,
If they’re gonna keep on playin’ these songs like,

Rainy Night in Georgia, Kentucky Rain,
Here comes that rainy day feelin’ again,
Blue eyes cryin’ in the early mornin’ rain,
They go on and on,
There’s no two the same,
Oh, how I wish I could blame all these songs about rain

Rainy Night in Georgia, Kentucky Rain,
Here comes that rainy day feelin’ again,
Blue eyes cryin’ in the early mornin’ rain,
They go on and on,
There’s no two the same

Rainy Night in Georgia, Kentucky Rain,
Here comes that rainy day feelin’ again,
Blue eyes cryin’ in the early mornin’ rain,
They go on and on,
There’s no two the same.

VIP Interview: Country Music Star Trip Richmond

IMG_0901
Trip Richmond and Abby Hathorn after his rocking performance at The Bank.

Trip Richmond is a country singing star who is taking the music world by storm!  Trip’s passion for music and diverse influences make his style stand out among other artists. Personally, I have never been a huge fan of country, but Trip Richmond’s tunes changed by opinion of the genre. After listening to his hot new single “Not Here Tonight”, my impression of country music was forever changed…for the better.  If Trip’s Mississippi twang and heartfelt lyrics can make the VIP get up and dance, I know that  he will be perfect for any music fan’s day-to-day playlist.

Trip has been writing and preforming songs for over a decade, and he has skillfully mastered incorporating the hardships of his past into his lyrics. “I consider my songs my babies, as most artists do,” says Richmond. “For folks who are trying to do what I do…you got to keep going, man. It can’t be about the money…it’s got to be about the song.”
