Don't Tell Me

Album: Even The River Runs (2014)
  • This song stems from a visit Joel Crouse made to his hometown of Holland, Massacusetts. "It's a very small town of 2,000 people, and I went home to visit," he explained to Billboard magazine. "I got together with some old high school buddies."

    "I ended up with a horrible hangover, but I also ended not calling my girlfriend for about eight hours -- and I was supposed to go meet up with her," Crouse continued. "That is pretty much the story of me not calling and showing up when I was supposed to. Hopefully, people will learn from my mistakes. It's a good bar tune, and I think people are going to dig it."
