How is it 2021 and we're just getting the first country song called "Boozing and Losing?" St. Louis' Turner Cody and The Soldiers of Love have finally done the obvious. "Boozing and Losing" is classic style country with a modern twist. While there is a classic feel to the song that you'd get with artists like Hank Williams and Merle Haggard, it does not sound like anything from that era. It's definitively a modern country/folk song. It reminds me of modern country folkies like Jonny Fitz or old timey Deer Tick. "Boozing and Losing" skirts the very thin line between having a sly sense of humor and being hokey funny perfectly. It's a very fresh take on one of the oldest forms of American music.
You can watch the video for "Boozing and Losing" below. Friends in High Places is due out June 4 on Capitane Records. For more on Turner Cody & The Soldiers of Love, check out Turner Cody's website.
