Just in time for summer, country singer-songwriter, Nate Barnes, released not one, but two, upbeat summer tracks. His new and captivating focus track, “Sing It Again” and B-Side, “Wheels Go Round” provides us with two completely different stories that effortlessly transform into the perfect summertime anthems for any occasion. Nate Barnes hails from Michigan himself and spends his career making intimate music surrounding his family, work, love, and life.
Barnes begins “Sing It Again” by setting up the perfect summer night scene we’re all familiar with lines like, “Streak of moonlight on the water / Got a fire built on the sand / Sitting around it telling stories with all my friends." The song touches on that reminiscence and nostalgia surrounding childhood memories, their innocence of them, and how they linger and replicate throughout adulthood.
Barnes tells his own personal story that inspired the song in a press release stating, “Some of my best childhood memories are of me and my granddad, cousins and everyone going to Simpson Lake back home in Michigan and fishing. That was a big deal for us as kids and it really brought us together as a family. When I first heard ‘Sing It Again,’ it made me relive those memories. I hope people hear this song and it helps them relive good times as well.”
The lyrics effortlessly capture summertime and the overall ease people feel when we spend the warm, hazy nights together. He sings, “No it just don’t get no better / Than this right here / Yeah tonight is like a song / Feels so good to just sing along / And don’t you worry / 'Cause when it ends / We’ll just sing it again.”
