Tara Thompson’s “My Dogs Are Home” is a new single off her up and coming album called Circus. Thompson describes herself as hillbilly from East Tennessee. She was raised in small-town in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. She grew up on Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Dolly Parton tunes and you can hear it in her songs. Her music is rooted in traditional country, with a modern take and is inspired by real-life firsthand stories. Read more about her backstory in our Swag Spotlight here.
She also shared her thoughts about the single on her Facebook page “With all the craziness going on in the world, I hope this song can put a smile on your face. Never did I think I would be promoting new music during a world pandemic, but we have to keep living and moving on. It’s a scary time, but also a time that I’m going to choose to use what God gave me and share it with the world”
Mysterious title, great story, and amazing performance that’s how Thompson’s latest single can be described. Written with Al Anderson and Kelly Archer, “My Dogs Are Home” is a humorous song for those who are afraid of drinking alone. She has a piece of exceptional advice if you have a dog, you’ve got company so you’re not drinking by your lonesome. The track is specifically poignant for anyone who is currently facing the COVID outbreak alone and needing some encouragement to open that bottle of wine.
With this song, she proves that her star is on the rise and we look forward to her upcoming album which is a reflection on her years navigating the music industry.
