Those are the opening lyrics of Jamie Lin Wilson’s new song “Just Some Things” a song she co-wrote and sings with Wade Bowen from her upcoming album Holidays & Wedding Rings, due out next Tuesday, May 19th.
It’s songs like this that give unique takes on classic subjects. There are many great cheating songs out there. There are a lot of great songs that explore the guilt of having lost someone the singer cares for due to mistakes. There are songs that deal with that type of regret. Few, if any, explore the guilt in the very immediate there-after of the act.
Wilson’s and Bowen’s voices mix beautifully and the instrumentation on the song is fantastic. It’d be hard to imagine anything less on something Bowen is involved with (he certainly has been busy, putting out his own new album last year, putting out a collaborative album with Randy Rogers, and collaborating both in writing and singing this song with Wilson). I’d never heard much from Jamie Lin Wilson before and this appears to be her first solo project, but you can be damn sure I’ll be reviewing the album when it comes out next week. If this song is any indication, I’m expecting great things from both this album and a new artist to pay a hell of a lot of attention to.
