Demo of the Week: “Just A Town” (Barry Dean, Luke Laird, Lori McKenna)

Demo of the Week: “Just A Town”

Writers: Barry Dean, Luke Laird, Lori McKenna

Vibe: Wistful, contemplative, nostalgic

Key Lyrics: If it’s the place that knew you way back when you were still trying to figure it out / If it’s where you were when you fell in love, then I guess you’re stuck / And it ain’t just a town.

Could Be A Good Fit For: Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Carly Pearce

X-Factor: The lyrics are a clever, never-cliche take on the classic hometown theme, and somehow even a specific nod to the Texaco “a few miles in” feels universal and relatable.
