Scant days ago, Brett Eldredge, released Sunday Drive, which, in turn, now becomes our musical tour’s Week #100 stopover.
To assist our exploration within the vast realm of Sunday titled songs, composers Barry George Dean, Don Mescall and Stephen Paul Robson will guide us through Sunday Drive’s passage thru time where, ultimately, we’ll witness (for some of us re-witness) the heartwarming, inevitable, intergenerational baton hand-off in the relay race of life.
Can’t speak for everyone, but, never before, have I so strongly identified with… been so thoroughly moved by such storytelling. Our music video’s sights and sounds unexpectedly teleported me back to my own bittersweet memories of family Sunday drives through our rustic hometown… memories of the cranked down windows’ whooshing gusts almost palpable. I commend my father for doing his very best to utilize his 1953 Ford as “the vehicle” to scare off the boredom and blues, which oft travel hand in hand with a bare bones way of life.
That bygone era’s 30¢ per gallon gasoline had certainly made our bonding experiences a bargain and well worth the trip.
