Brantley Gilbert provides us with a small sense of hope in his new release, “Hard Days”. The naturally rough voice of this Georgia native mixed with the desperate tone over these plainly honest lyrics creates a sense of enlightenment.
“This song means a lot to me,” he states in a press release. “It’s been a long time since I’ve heard a song that can stand on its own lyrically. Brock Berryhill, Logan Wall, Jimi Bell, and Jay Brunswick gave me the opportunity to work with them, and it’s something I’m extremely proud to be a part of. I feel like all of us are in need of a little bit of healing and in need of a little bit of hope. And this song offers that.”
“If you never had hard days / If you never had a heartbreak / Never had more than you can take / Or carried the weight / Of life on your shoulders / Would you feel like you earned it? / Would you live with a purpose? / Or ever known your own strength / If you never had hard days?”
This song is one of many releases that have been given to the public during these difficult last few months. It comes at a time when every listener, every person, every soul, can empathize and interpret the message in the same way with a similar story.
This song is a reminder that sometimes all those hard days, and there will be countless, establish strength and a sense of purpose; the will for a better life and the courage to attain it.
“‘Hard Days’ is about finding and acknowledging hope in the midst of turmoil and taking the good with the bad,” shares Gilbert in a press release. “I look back on some of the harder times in my life and think about where things are now, and I’m thankful for the bad that led to the good.”
“You wouldn’t know what it’s like to dance in the rain / Never see the silver lining when the skies go gray / You wouldn’t know a dream come true from a few that don’t / You’d never find your way on a broken road”
