This week on the release radar I came across Ben Allen Curry. He writes songs about the oilfield. The oilfield has been the way I make my living and the way my daddy did before me. The oilfield is the only reason I call this God forsaken West Texas Desert my home. I have lived here most all my life. I reckon I will never leave.
“‘Midland‘ has more streams in 1 day than all my other songs. Thank you to my oilfield family for taking this song and running with it!”Ben Allen Curry
Curry says on his Facebook page about his latest single, “‘Midland‘ has more streams in 1 day than all my other songs. Thank you to my oilfield family for taking this song and running with it!”
I also like how he recently described my home on Facebook, “Ironically I’m currently in West Texas soaking up all the Desert Sand I can take. It’s hell on my songs. The wind makes it hard to sing.” Said Curry.
The wind makes it hard to sing.Ben Allen Curry
I love West Texas and yes I can relate to the fact that somedays that hard wind is gonna blow and when it does, hard and hell is actually a very polite way to describe it.
