Last month, the San Antonio- country/folk-based and Texas Music Award winner Jeremy Parsons released his latest track ‘Tragedy’ on all streaming platforms.

This guy got a remarkable talent indeed when he released his first two tracks ‘Burn This House Down’ and ‘Why Is The Bluebird Blue’ from his latest album “Things I Need To Say” they were charted on the Top 40 Roots Music Report. And “Bluebird” also reached #2 on the Hits You Love pop charts. In addition, the videos for both songs were nominated and selected for numerous Film Festivals, including the Jersey Shore Film Festival, Indie’s Best Films Festival, and the Monkey Bread Tree Film Festival, an IMDB-sanctioned film festival.

When you listen to ‘Tragedy’ it will just stick to your head easily with the smoothy guitar lines and his emotive vocals. While I was listening to it, I just remembered the cowboys’ old movies, yeah, I say this because when I love about Parsons talent that he did a great blend between the old and modern style in just 3 minutes song. I believe this is one of the main goals of good music… to let you imagine, think and feel. Thanks, Jeremy Parsons! I will be waiting for your next releases for sure. Check more about his ‘Tragedy’ reflection:

“This song found me when I was sitting there strumming the chords I had just come up with and asked myself what I thought it sounded like, what it made me think of, what it made me feel. “Tragedy” was the word that popped into my head. I immediately looked up the definition, though I already knew what it meant, and used that as the structure. I wanted to take the definition and create examples of the feelings that might come with dealing with and working through a “Tragedy.” I wanted to set scenes and paint pictures of loss and struggle. This song comes with a heavy dose of reality and no happy ending but it does come with the knowledge that you are not alone. Tragedy finds and strikes us all in life. I had thought at some point too that this would be setup, storyline-wise, as a prequel to my first single “Burn This House Down,” from my last LP, “Things I Need To Say.” It would be the “Tragedy” that leads up to the inevitable end of things. I wouldn’t say I’m completely set on that now but it did help in bringing this song to life. Having that extra added inspiration can aid in making it personal and really drives and embeds the intended emotion into the song.”
