Seventeen Forever

Album: Livin' On A Dream (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Robin Beck wrote this with Jeff Kent. Their friendship dates back to the early '80s when Kent kept hiring Beck to sing on many of his song demos while signed to MTM as a staff writer.
  • Beck states in track-by-track comments: "Writing this particular song made us all feel like we were 17 again... Great memories and stories inspire this kind of song. Have had so many years and history working with Jeff Kent this song is a pleasant reminder that the good times never fade and we will always remember who we are and where we came from. Pass it on it's the greatest feeling to be 17 forever." >>
