Danno Simpson is a name country music fans need to know.
The up and comer just released his single “Old Town Saturday Night” this past week, the latest addition to his growing catalog of spectacular country music highlighted by deft lyricism and his demonstrated knack for storytelling.
A track that is especially entertaining and cleverly written, “Old Town Saturday Night” features simple instrumentation that draws the listener’s focus to the story with a spoken word aspect making it reminiscent of Townes Van Zandt’s “Fraternity Blues” or Todd Snider’s “Beer Run.”
Born in Texas but having spent most of his life in Colorado, Simpson’s Old Town Saturday Night” details an escalating night out in the college town of Fort Collins, CO, and the hangover induced existential dilemma experienced the following morning.
An all too familiar sequence of events for the narrator, this track is a must-listen for everyone.
For anyone that is not familiar with Simpson’s music yet, don’t stop here.
Dive on into his other music, you won’t be disappointed.
I’ll let the music speak for itself.
