“At the end of the day I believe that most people want the same thing, peace, hope and love, and that is what this song is all about.” – Troubadour 77
Troubadour 77 is out with a new record called Revolution and Redemption. On this record is a beautiful song that calls for change titled “American Revival.” The lyrics are very fitting for the times we are in right now. Husband and wife duo Monty Powell and Anna Wilson, living in Nashville, truly know how to craft the perfect song.
This powerful Americana ballad hit me in the soul and gave me chills. Not only do the lyrics speak volumes about the need for change in this country, but the music also transmits those emotions to my ears. The instrumentation is just as moving as the lyrics, both feeling extremely authentic and soulful. The lyrics say “You can keep your god and you can keep your gun, just don’t point and pull the trigger on either one.” The vocal delivery makes every lyric go heard and felt.
Official Artist Quotes:
“The song is a call to action for hope and redemption in the ever changing times we find ourselves in,” states Powell who penned the song on a plane flight from Nashville to Los Angeles. Wilson adds, “We were not seated together on that flight and so when we landed, he told me how this whole song just sort of appeared. He sang it in my ear standing at baggage claim and the minute I heard it I knew it was special.” Troubadour 77 are artists using their craft of songwriting and performance to mirror the humanity that is often times forgotten in the midst of the disruptive and divisive conversation that has infected the soul of our nation. “We need more love. We want more truth. I would like to think that is something we can all agree on,” says Wilson, “At the end of the day I believe that most people want the same thing, peace, hope and love, and that is what this song is all about.”
