Going Home

Album: Keep Coming Back (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Louisiana born singer-songwriter Marc Broussard had this song up his sleeve for a number of years before he included it on his 2008 Keep Coming Back album. He explained to Artist Direct: "'Going Home' is a song that I wrote about seven years ago with a guy named Jake Joyce from Nashville. It's a song I'd tried to record on several records over the years, and it just never worked out. We couldn't get the sonics altogether. Finally on the project, we just went back to basics and didn't try to do anything extra on the tracks. We looked through the demo and just made it happen. It came out great. It's a song we've always, as a band, listened to on the way back home from a tour. It meant a lot to every guy in this group, and it's very rewarding to have it finally on one of my records."
