I'm hanging in, I'm holding on their ain't no telling where the old me gone, he sings in the bright chorus. Unafraid to pull stories from his own life, Bowen's autobiographical story is rooted in tradition. Co- written with the talented Casey Beathard the song captures what good storytelling should be about. Not to mention, the cinematic official video brings the passionate lyrics to life, featuring Bowen’s wife and locations that are meaningful to his life.
“This is a Wade Bowen song….big, slow, dynamic and full of passion,” Bowen said in a press release. “It’s these types of songs that are my favorite to write and sing. There’s no better feeling than being a rambling soul who finally finds the one who settles ya down. We spend most of our lives thinking it’s not possible. Then boom… you’re knocked on your ass ‘cause it does. God bless the women who love a gypsy soul… this song is for you.”
Approachable and strong Lovin' Not Leavin embodies every aspect of what makes Wade Bowen a top tier talent.
