I personally loved Melissa Carper's 2021 album Daddy's Country Gold to the point that it was my #9 album of last year. Now she's back with a new song and upcoming album. "Ain't a Day Goes By" is that pure classic country sound that we all love from Carper. This just sounds like something that could have been recorded in the 1970's, but somehow it still sounds modern. It's a vintage sound, but it sounds like a lost country classic from fifty years ago that was recently discovered and re-recorded. "Ain't a Day Goes By" even has elements of soul and gospel just to hammer home that vintage country sound.
"Ain't a Day Goes By" was originally written in 2014 following the death of Melissa Carper's dog Betty. Carper explains:
