“I always kept the best for you.“
Just two days after its announcement, Turnpike Troubadours are back with their second single off of their upcoming album, A Cat in the Rain. “Chipping Mill” comes to ramp up the excitement for the already highly-anticipated return for the red dirt powerhouse.
In typical Evan Felker fashion, he likens getting his heart broken to getting it thrown into the titular chipping mill in the first and final verse. It reads:
“I ran my heart through a chipping mill
Sold my soul for rock ‘n roll
Gave away all that I can steal
But I always kept the best for you“
His expertly-written lyrics pair brilliantly with the strong, traditional production throughout Chipping Mill. There are fiddle and steel aplenty throughout the track with a gorgeous steel solo towards the back half of the song.
A Cat in the Rain releases in just over two months on August 25.
