Couldn’t Be Happiers — “Treehouse”
Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of the band Couldn’t Be Happiers’ song “Treehouse,” from their forthcoming EP Songs For Butchie, written for Jordan’s father who passed away a year ago. Song For Butchie was produced and mixed by Doug Davis, and mastered by Anand Gan of Flytrap Music Production.
“Treehouse” is Jordan Crosby Lee on acoustic guitar; Jack Gorham on accordion; Travis Williams on bass; Corky McClellan on drums; and vocals by Jodi Hildebran Lee and Jordan Crosby Lee. “Treehouse” is an up tempo alt-country song that might well be a quick modern day square dance of hope. Couldn’t Be Happiers make music that is witty and entertaining even as the lyrics weave in serious topics to consider.
We wrote “Treehouse” in the midst of an intense political time in America. Confronted by a multitude of dangers—climate change, rising inequality, and open racism—it felt like the end of the world…and still kind of does. Regardless, we have each other, and as long as we do, we will be OK. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have responsibility towards others. We have to make sure we treat others with acceptance and love. Hence the refrain, “You’re all welcome too.” — Jodi Hildebran Lee
