LYRICS

It’s the changin’ of the seasons
It’s gotta be the reason
I’m feeling sore

People give me the best advice
Put your foot in the door, kid and don’t ya think twice
How could you ask for more?

Spend my nights wonderin’
How it’s gonna be

Well I know you’re thinkin’ of me but I’ve got big plans
Tour around the country in a beat up van
Hit the ground runnin’, make a lot of money
Yeah, I wanna be the singer in a country band

Remember how it used to feel
When them nights were long and love was real
And we thought we could rule the world

Near the point of no return
No lookin’ back, no time to burn
Boys we gotta hit the road

Spend my days dreamin’ about
The stars we’re gonna be

Well, I know you’re thinkin’ of me but I’ve got big plans
Tour around the country in a beat up van
Hit the ground runnin’, make a lot of money
Yeah, I wanna be the singer in a country band

I met a man, most of his life was through
I seen the pain and regret in his eyes
He told me son, you gotta do what you gotta do
Every man must answer his own call

Well, I know you’re thinkin’ of me but I’ve got big plans
Tour around the country in a beat up van
Hit the ground runnin’, make a lot of money
Yeah, I wanna be the singer in this country band

(Well, I know you’re thinkin’ of me but I’ve got big plans
Tour around the country in a beat up van
Hit the ground runnin’, make a lot of money
Yeah, I wanna be the singer in a country band)

Here I am

Well, I wanna be the singer in a country band


PRESS RELEASE

With their latest release, "Singer In a Country Band", South City Revival continues to put their spin on "Chicago Country". The new single is a quintessential blend of country and rock and roll that demonstrates their diverse influences: from Red Dirt artists such as Reckless Kelly and Randy Rogers Band to Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. 

The lyrics address the pursuit of happiness in the face of the ever-ticking hands of time. The song is equal parts serious meditation and cheeky observation as it presents a young musician with a head full of glamorous hopes and dreams being faced with a not-so-glamorous road to get there.

 

South City Revival is: 
Joe Pacelli (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar)
John Quinn (Electric Guitar)
Brendan Linnane (Pedal Steel)
Pino Perez (Drums)
Mike Fitzgerald (Bass)

BIO

 

Musicians Joe Pacelli (vocals, guitar) and John Quinn (guitar) met in Chicago while playing in various bands around the city, as did bassist and drummer Mike Fitzgerald and Jose “Pino” Perez, respectively. Brendan Linnane (pedal steel) and John Quinn have known each other for years — Linnane being childhood friends with Quinn’s brother. Fate finally brought the quintet together on a snowy, Chicago night in the parking lot of a Western Ave. bar. Since forming in 2016, the band has spent their time crafting songs and sharpening up their live show — opening up for bands like Reckless Kelly, A Thousand Horses, Little Texas, and The Black Lillies.

In 2017, South City Revival teamed up with Chicago engineer/producer Mike Hagler (Wilco, Waco Brothers, OK Go) to record their self-titled, debut EP at his Humboldt Park Studio — Kingsize Sound Labs. The release features a captivating blend of story driven songwriting and high energy studio performances.
