"Movin' South" is a testament to the timeless quality of country music when it embraces simplicity. The song’s minimalistic arrangement allows the rich, resonant harmonies of Adam Wakefield and Casey James to shine through, evoking the golden era of country music. Their vocal blend is reminiscent of legendary acts, with hints of Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts, infusing the track with a nostalgic yet fresh sound.

Adam Wakefield's comment on the album reflects the core of "Movin' South": “This project is evidence of the kind of musicians we are. We're soldiers. The title track and concept of the album as a whole makes a statement, and is a testament to the musicality you have to be grounded in to make a record like this. It’s real music to the core, and I’m glad we got to capture some magic that will live on beyond the life of the band.”

Indeed, the magic is palpable in "Movin' South". The song pays homage to a slower way of life, capturing the essence of Southern living with an ease that feels both familiar and comforting. It’s a track that invites listeners to take a step back, breathe, and appreciate the beauty in simplicity.

As Texas Hill prepares to close this chapter with Soldiers, fans can expect a farewell that honors the journey of the band. Casey James reflects on this sentiment, “Texas Hill will always hold a special place in my heart. I’m so thankful for the music that has been made, and the friends and fans that I've gained along the way. It’s been a journey that I'm thankful for, and it has strengthened me as a musician and on a personal level. I’m looking forward to playing some killer shows with the band as we release this final record, and of course excited to get back to work on my own music outside of Texas Hill.”

"Movin' South" is a statement of where Texas Hill has been and where they are heading. It’s a fitting lead for an album that promises to be a heartfelt goodbye, filled with the genuine, rootsy sound that has defined the band. As we await the full release of Soldiers on September 13, "Movin' South" gives us a beautiful glimpse into the final musical journey of Texas Hill.
