Kyle Park Saddles Up and Tries Again on ‘Over and Over Again’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Texas troubadour Kyle Park will release his new album, Don't Forget Where You've Come From, on June 1, but you can hear a track called "Over and Over Again" now, exclusively on Taste of Country.
Co-written by Park and Cody Johnson, the song tells the tale of a rodeo cowboy who finds himself struggling on the road away from home. "Dear Lord I can't afford to lose come Santa Fe / I'm banged up and bruised / My horse needs shoes and there's bills to pay / My saddle's worn, my legs are torn / But I was born to get back on again / It's just who I am," Park sings.
The song is a standout from what spins on contemporary country radio — vivid lyrics and Park's stunning vocals tell a story that is a metaphor for the singer's real life as a musician.
"This song is about a rodeo cowboy who has endured tough times on the road, but it's also full of metaphors about my life as a musician," he shares. "Wherever I go on the road, it always feels like home each time I step on to the stage. But as an artist who's constantly traveling, trying to spread my music to fans across America and beyond, there are times I struggle with the hardships that come with the profession. I've taken a few wrong turns and 'fallen out of the saddle' just like the cowboy in this song. But every time I do, I get back up and try again. Music is my life. It's who I am."
"Over and Over Again" is one of 10 tracks on Don't Forget Where You've Come From. On the album, he returns to his neo-traditional country sound, as can be heard on "Over and Over Again." "This record represents me professionally and personally more than any others I’ve recorded — lyrically driven, straight-forward country songs about my family, faith and pride in the path you in take in life," Park says. "For this album, I know who I am as an artist and these songs paint that picture."
