I had initially started writing this song (or rather, had finished a version of it myself) after seeing a good friend from my childhood post on Facebook about how when he was home visiting his folks, he missed his friends, but when he was back in his new home with his friends, he missed his family. It got me thinking about how connected yet disconnected our modern world is, and how there are so many people in my life and in my past history story that I wish I could see again, SO many great folks that have added a brick to my life's wall. When I traveled to Nashville last month, I had an opportunity to write with published writer and pro guitarist Phil Roselle, and this is the tune we decided to dig into. Hope you enjoy "Always Gonna Be Missing Someone". And let's all be grateful on this Thanksgiving for all the loved ones we have in our lives and cherish the time we have together with them. I'm going to be together with all of my immediate family this weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving, my stepdad's 60th birthday and monumental retirement from 33 years on the railroad. Good times, I can't wait!
