Wise Words: Alec Taylor Breaks Down Lyrics To Single "In This Town"

We are back with UPstar. Music's "Wise Words" feature. "In This Town" was written by Alec Taylor and Brandon Manley and was released on October 1st, 2021. Alec Taylor brings a traditional country vibe with a modern twist and paints a picture with his powerful vocals of his pride in his roots and his hometown.

In this town

"The idea for this song was to shine a light on the people in my hometown and to give them something to listen to while they’re driving around on a Friday night. It means a lot to me because it takes me right back to my hometown no matter where I’m at. I hope other people can relate the way I can." -AT

Backroads lead back to our roots and we do it in boots

"I can remember so many days (and nights) where we’d all go out into the middle of nowhere on these backroads and have bonfires, go hunting. Every time I go there now I’m reminded of those memories, which are part of my roots. Also, everybody wears cowboy boots. That’s just the way it is." -AT

We'll live it up until they lay us down, in this town

"This was the easiest way to say that, no matter how long we get on this planet, we’ll be living life to the fullest until the day we die. It’s a way of life that I think (and hope) a lot of people can relate to." - AT
