Ain't Gonna Wait

Album: Like an Arrow (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the song on Like an Arrow that came together the most quickly. Blackberry Smoke's Charlie Starr recalled to HMV.com:

    "'Ain't Gonna Wait' was fun to record. I love breaking it all down to acoustic instruments and congas. Everything is so naked and pure. You can really hear the heart and soul of the song. I don't think we did more than two takes of that one."
