John Paul White (The Civil Wars) just premiered the track “The Good Old Days” via American Songwriter in anticipation of his upcoming solo album, The Hurting Kind, out 4/12 on Single Lock Records.
Of the track, White notes, “This song came out of nowhere. The title of the song was born of a conversation with my wife, Jenny. We were reminiscing about harder times in the past, moments where we struggled to get by. I said derisively, ‘Ah, the good old days.’ And we both thought, why do people say that? The last thing I’d want to do is go back and relive it. These are the good days. The best, I’d like to believe, are yet to come.”
