As the country begins to open up and we continue to battle the coronavirus, Levi Hummon is opening up his catalog and exclusively sharing his new single “Rock and Roses” with One Country readers.
Written by Levi, Johnny Dibb and Ben Wells, the summer sizzler tells the story of someone realizing what they had in a relationship after it is gone.
“‘Cause a rock and roses / Can’t fix what is broken / Didn’t know what I was holding / ‘Til I let you walk let you walk away / Yeah I think I made a big mistake / Oh we’re maybe better off this way / But now we’ll never know it / ‘Cause I didn’t get a rock and roses / Rock and roses,” he sings in the chorus.
“I wrote “Rock And Roses” last August when I was going through a pretty rough breakup,” Levi tells One Country. “It’s funny how songwriting can really get you through the worst times. Feelings of regret can be made a little better when you talk about it and especially when you write about it. Now this song feels like part of the story and a reminder that these feeling of sadness during a breakup don’t last forever.”
The new tune follows Levi’s previous single, “Wedding Dress” and a release of the cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.”
Levi, the son of Grammy-wining songwriter Marcus Hummon (“Cowboy Take Me Away,” “Bless the Broken Road”), began his country music career in 2016 with the release of his debut self-titled EP. He followed that up with an EP called Patient in 2018. The Nashville native then embarked on his first headlining tour, Drop of Us, at the end of 2019 and was set to hit the road in April before the coronavirus forced cancellations.
The good news is that in a recent Facebook Live with One Country, the 28-year-old told fans to get ready for more new music to come.
And here it is. Check out Levi’s newest single, “Rock and Roses.”
