“I thought it was cool to be asked to participate in this project.
I grew up on the music my parents were listening to, and Little Texas was absolutely one of those bands! My mom might have been more excited than I was when I told her I was doing “My Love,”KOLBY COOPER
“On August 6, 2021, Little Texas did a show in Schulenberg, TX, with Kolby Cooper and I was completely blown away by how such an amazing voice came out of this mountain of a guy.
He came on stage with us and sang “God Blessed Texas,” and after the show, I spent time with him and his family.
We had so much in common, both being born and raised in the Piney Woods of East Texas, and immediately hit it off.
That day I hoped that I could find a way to work with him again. What a talent,”Duane Propes of Little Texas
“My Love” is a country ballad that expresses deep and enduring love for someone special. The lyrics convey a heartfelt message of devotion, commitment, and the profound emotions of being in a loving relationship.
“MY LOVE” LYRICS
“Get on your mark, get set
Ready or not, here I come
You’ve been looMking for love
Well, honey, I can give you some
When your world is standing still
I can turn it around
Put your head up in the clouds
And pick your feet off the ground
My love, are you ready for my love, my love
My love, my love is ready for you
If you’re looking for a heart that’s always true
Only for you, then my love
My love, my love is ready for you …”
“My Love” was co-written by Porter Howell, Tommy Barnes and Brady Seals. Brandyn Steen served as Executive Producer on the new tribute version and Duane Propes as Music Producer. It was recorded at ER Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with mixing done by Bart Busch and engineering by David Spielberg. A-list session musicians included Duane Propes (bass guitar), Mark Matejka (lead and acoustic guitar), Dane Byrant (keys) and Corey Wright (drums).
