Country singer Bart Crow chatted about his forthcoming single release "If I Go, I'm Going," which features country vocalist Macy Maloy.
On his new single, he remarked, "A friend of mine pitched the song to me. I listened to it and it swept me off my feet. I went in and paid respect to the song and tried to make it our own. I brought in Macy who knocked it out of the park and she sang so beautifully and so lovely. I think we did a good job on it."
A Maypearl, Texas, native, Crow has served in the U.S. Army and moved to Austin, Texas, in 2005 to pursue his musical career.
Throughout his career, Crow has earned five chart-topping songs on the Texas Country Charts which include "Run With The Devil," "Dandelion," "Saying Goodbye," "Little Bit of Luck," as well as "Wear My Ring." "We have been very blessed and very lucky. I work really hard at writing songs. I challenge myself to do the best that I can and I surround myself with great musicians and a good team," he said.
He has shared the stage with such musical acts as Randy Rogers Band and the Eli Young Band. "I consider them both to be great friends and pals and musicians. They are extremely talented and it is a lot of fun to play with them. I try to learn as much as I can from the guys that have been doing it a little longer," he said.
Crow is a true road warrior, playing approximately 200 shows a year. "We stay busy," he said. "As long as people are willing to come and listen to us, we will be bringing music to them."
At the 2014 Texas Regional Radio Music Awards, he secured nominations in four categories: "Duo, Group,Band of the Year," "Single of the Year," "Song of the Year" and "Music Video of the Year." "That was extremely exciting. We didn't make it to the final round, but that's okay. To be nominated by our peers and fans is pretty special, since this was in four categories and that is a nice feeling. We keep on working," he said.
Crow's fourth studio album Dandelion has sold well over 30,000 copies and it was produced by Justin Pollard, who is country star Pat Green's drummer and co-producer. He wrote 12 out of the 14 songs on that album. "Justin Pollard is such a talented individual. He is a great drummer and he has a great vision and he was very receptive," he said. "I think Dandelion is a really good record since we took a lot of songs and we were very selective with them and it turned out really nicely."
Two of Crow's songs appeared on the soundtrack of the independent film "Desdemona: A Love Story," which won "Best Feature Film," "Best Cinematography" and "Best Actor" in the 2009 Boston Film Festival, as well as "Best Feature Film" at the 2009 Naples International Film Festival. "That was really cool since we were in the movie and we cut two songs for it. It was very flattering to be a part of it and to see ourselves on the big screen," he said.
He cited his musical influences as The Beatles, Steve Earle and Jim Croce. "I feel I can relate to Steve Earle's ruggedness and he is very raw and I think he is really awesome. Jim Croce was just an incredible songwriter," he said.
Crow listed Emmylou Harris, Miranda Lambert, Sara Evans, Lee Ann Womack, Sheryl Crow and Jewel as the female artists that he would love to someday sing a duet with. "All of their voices are just incredible," he said.
