Sometimes

Album: yet to be titled (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single for Luke Bell, who grew up in Wyoming before making his way to Nashville with stops in New Orleans and Austin. With a honky-tonk piano, the song is a throwback to the sound of Jimmie Rodgers and other artists from that era. The lyrics are also in the cry-in-your-beer variety, as Bell sings about how he can't get over his "cornbread queen." Even though they had some rough times, he still misses her.
  • In our interview with Bell, he said, "I enjoy the way that song feels. The way it makes other people feel. It's fun. Sometimes you have songs that prove themselves over time and you continue to really enjoy."
