Demo of the Week: “Every Chevy”
Writers: Lacy Green, Mark Irwin, Jason Duke
Vibe: Nostalgic, wistful, heartbroken
Key Lyrics: “It ain’t the red lights that slow me down / It’s watching for those Texas plates / Cause even if it isn’t you / It still takes me to that place / To backseat summers and my mistakes.”
Could Be A Good Fit For: Dierks Bentley, Eli Young Band, Brett Young
X-Factor: The lyrics tell a simple breakup story, but the clever use of Chevy trucks’ ubiquity to describe an innocent search for lost love (“Who knew that they sold ’em all to girls with pulled-back auburn hair”) sets the song apart from other truck-focused tracks. The easy, casual delivery and gentle background vocals coat the song in sweet, sad nostalgia.
