Josh Card, ‘Won’t Chase Your Love’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Country neo-traditionalist Josh Card is premiering his vintage-inspired new song "Won't Chase Your Love" exclusively for readers of The Boot. Press play below to listen.
A modern ballad born from the lineage of Ray Price and Conway Twitty, "Won't Chase Your Love" blends classic chord progressions with lush, syrupy steel guitar and Card's stark baritone. According to Card, "Won't Chase Your Love" is a self-explanatory tune, written about those times when it's best to cut your losses and walk away from a relationship that just isn't working out.
""Won't Chase Your Love" is a brokenhearted ballad about acceptance -- acceptance that the love you once had is gone, the fire has burned out, and what once was is no more," Card tells The Boot, "and coming to the realization that you can no longer live in the false faith of a rekindling."
A Florida native, Card has long served as the guitarist in the popular outlaw country band Whitey Morgan and the 78's. "Won't Chase Your Love" will appear on his debut album as a solo artist, titled With a Heavy Heart. Produced by Dean Miller, son of the legendary songwriter Roger Miller, the project features appearances from some of Nashville's most iconic musicians, including pedal steel players Paul Franklin and Mike Johnson.
With a Heavy Heart is out on Nov. 9. Fans can visit JoshCardMusic.com to learn more about the project and Card's upcoming shows.
