Aaron Parker, ‘Homesick’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Aaron Parker, a native of Southern Alabama, is exclusively revealing a new song, "Homesick" -- a tune that will have you pining for the place you grew your own roots, so to speak -- for readers of The Boot.
"Homesick" is a love song directed at Parker's formative years, and the nostalgic lyrics coupled with Parker's commanding vocals are entrancing. With just an acoustic guitar and his voice, the singer remembers the simple lessons he learned, a faith-filled childhood and a family that loved him through and through. He recalls being a "letterman hero" to a girl when he was "too young to realize it wouldn't last" and admits he "gets homesick for that."
The chorus of "Homesick" is as smooth as Parker's twang-tinged voice: "My whole world was a cornfield with new rows / And tassels blowin' like gold in the wind / And I didn't know that life moved any faster / Than an Alabama sun sinking back / Yeah, I get homesick for that."
Parker, who has been described as a young Garth Brooks meets early Kenny Chesney and McGraw, is influenced by '90s country lyricism, while arena-style guitars and fiddle give his music a distinct sound. He has toured with Alabama, Brett Eldredge, Trace Adkins, Loretta Lynn, Chase Rice, Cassadee Pope and many more.
