The Goodfellers now offer up a new single, “To Love Somebody,” featuring the rich, earthy voice of Teddy Barneycastle. Teddy describes what inspired him to record the song, “I got a call today from a friend of mine who is a Texas writer. We share a mutual friend who was also an entertainer; he lost his mom today, which upset me and brought to mind the line “You don’t know what it’s like, baby, you don’t know what it’s like, to love somebody, to love somebody, the way I love you.” I think those are compelling lyrics; they really hit me today, tears and all. I thought, how powerful are the words to that song. Maybe I need to rethink what I’m doing. I want to affect people with our music, making them love more, hate less, laugh, think of others, and enjoy their lives. The single is currently in rotation on several terrestrial and internet radio stations and has already charted on the Blugrass Today Grassicana Chart!
Their music is fresh, driving, unique and bluegrass that moves the soul!
