Nashville-based band Boy Named Banjo has released their uplifting new track What Keeps Me Going, via Mercury Records Nashville / Snakefarm in the UK. Over tender, harmony-laced production, the quintet shares a positive anthem of gratitude that was written following what our world has experienced over the last several years.
“What Keeps Me Going is essentially our answer to the question, ‘What is important to us?’” shares banjo player Barton Davies, who penned the song with guitarist and harmonica player William Reames and Pat McLaughlin (John Prine, Loretta Lynn).
“We wrote this song as we were coming out of the pandemic and reflecting on how that whole experience had shifted our focus. Like many others during that time, we found the most meaning from the simplest things – being outside, watching the sun go down, going fishing, and spending quality time with our loved ones. That’s what kept us going then and what keeps us going today.”
What Keeps Me Going arrives on the heels of Boy Named Banjo’s Grand Ole Opry debut in March. The Nashville-raised five-piece is a fusion of contemporary country, Americana and folk-rock stacked on a foundation of bluegrass.
What Keeps Me Going is now available to stream from all the usual outlets.
