Modern country band The Jackson Line have released a stripped-back acoustic version of their song, Solutions.
The song tells the story of a disconnect in a relationship; one person simply needing to be held, the other trying to offer help. The simplicity of the story has made it one of the band’s most popular live songs, which prompted them to strip it back to a simple guitar and piano, allowing the song to speak for itself.
“Sometimes it’s hard to really know a song until it’s been heard by an audience, and since our gigs last summer, Solutions has emerged as a song which has a special connection with our fans,” explains Keith Porter, singer and pianist with the band. “The world is in a difficult place right now. Relationships are being challenged with the intensity of the lockdown, so we hope that Solutions can help bring some warmth and love to the world, with a simple story of understanding and compassion.”
The original version of Solutions was included on the band’s debut EP, Don’t Wait, which has been streamed almost 200,000 times since it’s release.
The band’s last single, also called Don’t Wait, was included on Apple Music’s ‘Country Wide’ playlist alongside artists such as Carrie Underwood, Brett Young and Ward Thomas, as well as Spotify’s New Music Nashville.
Solutions (Acoustic Version) is available across multiple digital music platforms from Monday May 18th 2020, including Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play.
