Little Kid - "All Night (Golden Ring)"

Toronto's Little Kid exist in a world that mixes folk and indie rock with heavy leanings towards artists like Neil Young. Their latest single, "All Night (Golden Ring)," is a duet between band members Kenny Boothby and Megan Lunn. Despite the song not being country at all, it's inspired by the relationship between Tammy Wynette and George Jones. The country superstars were a real life couple who also collaborated musically quite frequently. The couple divorced due to abuse from Jones. Their solo careers weren't as successful as their work together, so they recorded Golden Ring, which was their first ever number one album. 

Kenny Boothby explains how "All Night (Golden Ring)" is related: 

I was really saddened to read about that, and to picture how that must have felt for TammyI can’t relate directly, but as a survivor of abuse, I can only imagine what it would feel like to have to sing with my abuser, much less to have to sing love songs with him and act like everything is OK.
