#TheClassics: Tom Kimmel ‘Bigger Than Both Of Us’
Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered.
You may not know who Tom Kimmel is - heck, I know I didn't. However, I had the fortunate opportunity of meeting him a few weeks ago, in addition to hearing him play.
He lives up to his name as one of the silent heroes in country/America music, writing the most creative, story-driven songs. Many of these tunes have been recorded by notable artists such as Johnny Cash and Randy Travis.
This 1993 classic of his was one of my personal favorites:
Sometimes a relationship can teach us invaluable lessons, even if it’s not a lasting one. This song’s for a woman who was relentlessly honest with me. I’m sure it wasn’t easy, but she taught me how to be honest myself.
