“Bourbon and Beer”
Kim Robins is excited to announce her latest single, “Bourbon and Beer.” The track is featured on the current album, Leave the Porch Light On. The fiddle-driven tune also includes musicians like Brennan Hess, Clay Hess, Kyle Estep and Tim Crouch who assist the Indiana native with instrumentals.
“Bourbon and Beer” tells a haunting story about a husband who can’t crack his addiction, which ultimately leads to more issues down the line. The lyrics were perfectly captured by co-writers Kim Robins, David Morris and Dawn Kenney. It was met with high critical-acclaim when Roots Music Report gave the project, a five-star review, while noting that “Bourbon and Beer” was one of the standouts. Bluegrass Today complimented the collection by adding, “Suffice it to say Leave the Porch Light On is a sturdy yet sincere offering that brings Robins’ incisive presence solidly to the fore. That makes this album an illuminating effort indeed.”
Recorded during the COVID era, Leave The Porch Light On features a collection of 13 recordings. It’s very obvious when listening through the record, listeners can hear various influences that stay true to the Hoosier’s unique sound. There’s also no shortage of hit songwriters on the collection, including tracks penned by Paula Breedlove, Mark Brinkman, Rick Lang, Alan Johnston, and more.
