CIRCUS NO. 9
“The Place that I Call Home”
RECORD LABEL:Bonfire Music Group
LOCATION:Johnson City, Tennessee
They say that, “You can never go home…” But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a real place called “home.” The boys from Circus No. 9, in their second Bonfire Recording Co. single, “The Place that I Call Home,” recounts those supposed re-visits—conjuring a peaceful, tranquil, and familiar place. The overall timbre of this enjoyable song evokes a feeling of nostalgia and memory, with intricate fiddle and guitar solos anchored by a singable melody and chorus.
