SINGLE REVIEW: Get On By by Doc Straw & the Scarecrows

We’re so excited to bring “Get On By” by Doc Straw & the Scarecrows because it’s the Southern Rock we’ve been longing for. There isn’t too much Southern Rock being put out and if there are, it’s nothing compared to what we are hearing right now. “Get On By” brings the good feel vibes while bringing in some very tough lyrics that really bring life’s troubles to attention. 

Take it from them, “I wrote this song after getting off of a 3-hour long phone conversation with my sister, Jessica, and a lot of our conversation that evening  centered around some of the tougher things in life and how we were dealing with these struggles. If a person lives long enough then at some point they will experience these trying seasons. I’ve learned that it’s important to pay attention during those times because that is when we have some of the best opportunities to grow.”

Oddly enough, many of us need to start having more conversations to bring about these tough choices and tough situations that we deal with on a daily basis. Shoot, we all have bills to pay and life keeps kicking out butts, the struggles never seem to end but we do know this, these times are the times that build character. We get to find out who we really are and makes it us that much stronger for not only ourselves, but it encourages those around us to endure as well. We’re all in this together and listening to Doc Straw & the Scarecrows puts us at ease a bit to know that we’re not alone – we all have someone to rely on to get us through. 

We’d also like to point out from their statement that it does take effort and we need to communicate with each other more often to really dig ourselves out and talk through these hard times. “Get On By” has a melodic tune that tells us a story of hard times but also the opportunity to build off these hard times. 

Take a listen to “Get On By” by Doc Straw & the Scarecrows and try to find comfort in this song. Check out the link below.
