My Town is intended to create a wistful longing in the listener for bygone days when life was simpler and more meaningful—a time when common sense and general goodness overcame political correctness and agenda. While our world today is unquestionably altered from that time, there are still places remaining that cling to old-fashioned values and prudence. We count it a privilege to live in such a place! In our town, prayer still happens before every major event, and the sidewalks are still rolled up at dusk every evening, except by the restaurant on the corner of the square, where people gather after a day’s work and everybody knows your name.
Even here in this little vestige of the past, there is an increasing rush toward tomorrow. People are beginning to look into their phones more than into each other’s eyes. And kids are forgetting the wonders of exploring a creek and building tree forts in favor of playing video games and watching movies.
Let these songs take you back and remind you of the important things in life. Maybe you can relate to losing a family farm as the title track depicts, or perhaps Movie House will remind you of a special place from your childhood taken over by more modern, profitable ventures. Looking back can be informative for the future and They’re Gone is an encouragement to make the most of every moment in life. Whether you live in a small town, on a farm in the country or in a big city, at the end of the day, we believe that The Only Thing that Matters is our faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
We hope you enjoy this jaunt down Memory Lane! And we hope that it inspires you to cling to the truly important things in life and to make a difference in your world today!
God bless you all,
The Lindsey Family
