Memories of the past often fade over time, but not the “Songs We Sang.” A native son of Nashville with a distinguished musical pedigree, singer/songwriter Levi Hummon taps the connection we have to songs that stay vibrant long after lesser details wilt with time with his thoughtful new single
“Songs We Sang,” with its bouncy, throwback feel and contemporary message is available now at retail and streaming. With a voice that’s as powerful as some of music’s biggest heavy-hitters, Hummon is more self-aware than self-conscious: “Don’t remember the blur of them nights/We partied like we got paid/and after all of this time/I still remember the songs we sang.”
“As I’ve grown older I’ve noticed my memories of high-school, and growing up in Nashville, are beginning to fade,” says Hummon. “Now, there is a kind of golden nostalgic glow around that period of my life. The crazy thing is, I still remember every single word to every song I used to crank up in my Mom’s old minivan. “Songs We Sang” is about those memories, that feeling, and the realization that you may be getting older, but you can still reach back in time, and even sing along.”
“Songs We Sang,” which was written by Hummon, Matt McVaney and Kylie Sackley, is the anticipated follow up to his hit “Stupid,” which has been the only song by an unsigned artist on the Billboard Top Country Songs chart for the last two consecutive weeks and has amassed over 10 million streams. And fans can further go down the rabbit hole with Hummon’s powerful ballad, “Love Heals,” a deeply meaningful duet with Alison Krauss that features their vocals intertwining like spring ivy.
Hummon is headed back to the U.K. this weekend for Country To Country (C2C) Music Festival followed by several dates including Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and London as part of the first C2C Roadshow with Kristian Bush of Sugarland.
