Bill Abernathy - 'Can't Go Back'

Bill Abernathy's "Can't Go Back" is one of the songs off BWH Music Group's latest album, 'Keepin It Country, Vol. One.' The compilation album features 17 songs by today's best emerging country artists.

Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Bill Abernathy album Find A Way reached #5 on the Roots Music Report Traditional Folk Albums chart, spending more than a year on the chart. His single, “Goodbye Will Never Come Again” reached #1 on the Traditional Folk Songs chart. With his latest album, Crossing Willow Creek receiving critical praise and his first single, “Cry Wolf,” climbing several radio airplay charts, Abernathy is just hitting his stride as one of today’s rising independent country artists. Bill is a pure lyrics first writer and a gripping storyteller; his music grows from the seeds of experience.

"Cant Go Back" is a delightful song that's easy to fall in love with because it's about the universal desire for a second chance at the past. Have you ever had fantasties about turning back the clock, getting back together with an old lover, or visiting your old stomping grounds and you finally do it - you go back - and everything seems smaller and less significant than the way you remembered it? Bill Abernathy's song "Can't Go Back" perfectly captures the nostaglic pull and the reasons why you just can't do a do-over."Later in life you meet and their dressed to impress as a hot mess in a tight red sequined dress."

Bill Abernathy is on guitar and vocals and he is joined by a stellar lineup of musicians: Max Berry on guitars, bass and vocals, Paul Roberts on keyboards, and Thomas Freight Train Walker on drums. The band does a great job with creating a tight track with catchy, forward moving licks. The well-written chorus is highy melodic and very memorable. You will be humming it for days.

In "Can't Go Back," Bill Abernathy has written a song about memories and experiences - some experience are worth holding onto, and there are others that you "can't go back" to. Thankfully, Bill has gone back to the seeds of music that were planted in his youth, and after many years raising a family, he has "gone back" to those music roots and reemerged as a great songwriter with a lot experiences to share.
