Wouldn't Have You
Wouldn't Have YouAnother shout out to my friends Crosstown Drive for making a great album! I am honored to be featured on song "Wouldn't Have You" "Percussionist Nick Jacobs wrote “Wouldn’t Have You,” with the lyrics coming from a song he sang to his infant son through the baby monitor, knowing his wife would hear it. The song, with female vocals from Kirstie Kraus, is a bittersweet reflection on where their lives would be if either Jacob or his wife got their way. “If your momma always listened to me, boy, ain’t no telling where we might be/If your momma always listened to me, boy, we’d be lost,” is the song’s refrain." - The Star, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin
