Veteran singer-songwriter Jonathan Terrell keeps honky-tonk close to home — in more ways than one — in his infectious new song “Place Out Back,” which premieres exclusively at The Boot today ( September 8).
The track’s galloping groove, anchored by electric guitar and cleverly layered auxiliary accompaniment, echoes the lively electricity that wafts through the nighttime haze of a local dive bar. But before the lights come on and the party wraps up for the night, Terrell comes up with a particularly convenient alternative.
“It’s not much to watch / No, it doesn’t cost that much / But we can hear the band from the parking lot if you stand in front of my porch,” he explains.
“Have you ever lived in a trailer behind a bar in Austin, Texas? Well, this is what it looks like,” Terrell told The Boot.
The song’s accompanying music video takes viewers on a playful and slightly chaotic journey through the lyrical landscape of Terrell.
