Singer-songwriter Logan Mize contests the notion that you can’t go home again in “Come Back Road,” the title track from his new album. The independently-released Come Back Road, Mize’s first full-length since parting ways with Sony Music Nashville, will be out July 28th.
Mize, a native of Clearwater, Kansas, sings of “the USA that time forgot,” where things don’t seem to change on a weekly basis. It’s a container for memories – Springsteen’s voice on the radio, unseen romances in the moonlight – but also a place that will wait when your dreams carry you beyond the city limits sign. “Come Back Road,” written by Josh Kear, Ross Copperman and Rodney Clawson, benefits from symmetry in the production – a fingerpicked acoustic guitar and Mize’s serrated edge vocals give way to a contemporary, thunderous drum loop before returning to the acoustic strums.
Come Back Road, produced by Dan Agee, also features the single “Ain’t Always Pretty,” which has garnered an impressive 20 million spins on Spotify after being launched by Bobby Bones. This weekend, Mize will celebrate the release of Come Back Road with shows in El Dorado and Concordia, in his native Kansas.
