HOLSTEIN'S "HILLBILLY LOVE" CELEBRATES THE TRUE POWER OF COMMUNITY, FAITH, FAMILY & FRIENDS

Scott Holstein delivers the kick-off song for the Summer of 2020, “Hillbilly Love”! This uplifting, feel-good toe-tapper is an honest celebration of all the best that life has to offer… great community, faith, family and friends.

Holstein’s “Hillbilly Love” takes you on a whirlwind ride through a current snapshot of a life lived wherein the simpler things really do matter most; even more so in these trying times. It’s the magic, mystery and beauty of a new found cultural evolution… written in the mountains and in the stars…

"'Hillbilly Love' was inspired by the love of my life, my wife Lynda, who is from up on the plateau in Jamestown, Tennessee. Lynda went to the University of Tennessee and was in the marching band. Lynda’s father Frank Alexander was on the 1951 University of Tennessee National Championship Football team. Both are proud 'hillbillies'. 'Rocky Top', a hillbilly classic, is the official state song for Tennessee and is also the 'fight song' for the University of Tennessee. We all love this classic hillbilly song. I grew tired of hearing the term 'hillbilly' used as a pejorative, so I decided to flip the script. I would instead use the word affectionately to say, 'I love my little hillbilly'. From those inspirations I wrote the title, lyrics and melody for my song 'Hillbilly Love'. I co-wrote and produced the song with my friend Scott Holstein."
