This past Saturday was our 11th anniversary so I did what any good songwriter does [:) ] and wrote her a song.
If you’re interested, the last anniversary song I wrote Olivia was “Like This” from my album State I’m In.
Let me know what you think!

I really like this one. Good job, and congrats to you and Olivia!
I like this one. The emphases on the words are great… those quick jumps to the high notes make it sound so whimsical. Good song.
“the emphases on the words” … meaning, the way the words fall rhythmically. It’s good. I appreciate song writers who place the words in the right spots, so the beats of emphasis land melodically and rhythmically and lyrically in the right spot.
Thanks, Mandy. I have to give props to my lyric writing teacher, Pat Pattison, for drilling that into me. He would be proud :).
Bro, LOVING THIS SONG! Excellent job taking me into the intimate friendship you have with your bride but not so much I feel like I am intruding.
That sliding progression is so versatile too! I need to play with it and see what comes to me. Nice!
Thank, Chad…That progression was inspired by teaching the Beatles’ “Blackbird.”
