Song of the week – Number

This week’s song of the week is one I wrote about 6 years ago and first appeared on my 2016 acoustic album “Best I Can”. The theme is a subject near and dear to my heart…a failed relationship. Something I know a lot about! And since I work as an accountant (haven’t quit my day job…yet), I know a lot about numbers too. Maybe I was trying to make sense of a situation in a way that made sense to me? Also, at the same time I was writing “Number”, I was writing an actual (gasp!) love song. I wasn’t real sure how my current romance was going to pan out, so I was trying to cover all the bases. Ha! Unfortunately, this song turned out to be more accurate. Sigh. But sad topic aside, it’s still a happy little tune! Click HERE to check it out.

Thanks for listening, KP

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving y’all! I’m so thankful for your support. xoxo

Song of the week – Classy Chassis

For the 5th installment of the series, we have a song that uses a rockabilly term for a “great body” and takes it a step further. A long time ago, a friend told me about overhearing a guy say, “That Kellie Parr… she used to be HOT!” Ha! Compliment? Hmmm…I’m not so sure but it got me thinking. Later, when I heard the term “classy chassis”, I thought the “classy” part could actually go a bit more retro – like all rockabilly – and mean the vintage, older version of that particular “great body”.  All of my scattered thoughts on the subject (plus my love of automotive & rockabilly terminology) gelled into this song about a pretty, sassy girl… with each verse covering both the youthful version (“hippest, rockin betty” & “red hot queenie”…see pic – that’s me in college!)  and the older, more experienced woman she is today (“hot-rod mama” & “vintage model”). Slightly autobiographical? Perhaps! Click HERE for the album version on bandcamp.com or click below for a new YouTube video from our performance at Shrimp & Grits Fest a few weeks ago. I definitely was HOT on that one… hot and sweaty, that is! Hope you enjoy the song… and let me know what you think. Hot or not?? 😊

Thanks for listening, KP

P.S. Hope you can join me for dinner at The Fish Dock tomorrow night, 7-10pm.

Song of the week – Slow Dance at the Waffle House

For this week’s tune, we have a real-life true-story of a song. Yes, I actually did slow dance in the parking lot of the Waffle House on Saint Simons Island, GA…with someone I had a GIANT crush on, singing a tune from his soon-to-be hit album in my ear! Some of you Island old-timers like me will remember the glory days of the 90s when all kinds of amazing bands played here (thanks to Griffin Bufkin). The subject of this song (who will remain nameless until I get up the nerve to send it to him) played in a couple of awesome bands who performed regularly on the Island. Now he’s a big producer and still tours all over the country. But I guess I don’t need to tell the whole story…click HERE and see if you can figure out who has “wild eyes, black boots and tattoos”. Some of you already know, don’t you?

Thanks for listening, KP

P.S. The graphic above is from a Tshirt my son designed to promote the song. What do you think? And don’t forget to come out to Ember/Mas Lounge on Saturday, 7-10pm, to see me and Lee O’Neal… and Brunswick Porchfest, Sunday, 3-4pm at 1027 Union Street. Fun!

Song of the week – Feelin’ Bluegrass Blue

You never know when an idea for a song is gonna hit you. This one started with a message from my good friend, Uncle Dave Griffin, when he reminded me to bring “my man” along to the next Gram Parsons Fest. I thought to myself “my man ain’t my man no more!” (story of my life) which sounded like a good first line for a song. So good, that I repeat it at the end… a little trick I picked up from my fave, John Prine. In between, I use a bunch of bluegrass terminology/imagery to tell the story and deal with my anger and sadness (hence, bluegrass blue) about my man walkin’ out on me. Do I go a bit too far (murder ballad, really?) or is it all in jest? Click HERE to find out. And listen for the acoustic lead guitar stylings of Marc Andress… he’s awesome on this track! 

Thanks for listening, KP

P.S. Hope to see y’all at the Shrimp & Grits Festival this Saturday!

Song of the week – Bent & Determined

For this week’s installment of “Song of the week”, I know what you’re thinking. Shouldn’t it be “bound” and determined? Yeah, my family has their own unique way of expressing themselves. Kinda like “hell bent” and determined. Right? Anyway, it refers to when I decide to do something, I’m basically like a dog with a bone. I won’t stop until it’s done! In this particular instance, the topic (of course) is a relationship. At first, I’m all about making it happen, then I have second thoughts. By the end, I’m “Bent & Determined” to do the opposite. Maybe I’m fickle, confused… or just self-sufficient? Ha! Click HERE to take a listen and decide for yourself. You can get your very own “Bent & Determined” t-shirt by clicking HERE. Cool! And I hope to see you TONIGHT at The Study@Reid’s. Don’t forget to call 912-289-2659 for the password.
