Americana Highways brings you this video premiere of David Tribble’s song “Valentine’s Day (Acoustic),” written and performed by David Tribble. It was videoed by DJ Dugan of Smith Music, and recorded live at Chief Records in Fort Worth Texas.
There’s something about Tribble’s gritty vocals on the hushed mic that will win you over in the first heartbeat. Enjoy the raw declarations of love, especially on Valentine’s Day — although the song is timeless and all year through. “You might think that it’s Valentine’s Day from the way I’m talking to you… but it’s a 24/7, 365 days a year kind of love.”
This song is dedicated to and inspired by my beautiful wife Erin. I wrote this song early in our marriage, years ago, and every year right around this time, I would think to myself, maybe I’ll record this song and release it into the world. Needless to say, it’s been a long time coming.
This song always takes me back to our early days together as newlyweds. Living in our small one bedroom apartment, remembering just how easy it was to make time for her as I was falling in love. Fast forward to now, we have a house, with 2 daughters and a mortgage. There are so many things that can keep relationships, like mine, from maintaining that fire, the fun, and the priority to nurture your spouse and show love no matter what is going on. This song points to showing that kind of love 24/7 for 365 days, “not just on Valentine’s Day.”
We chose to record at Chief Records, a family owned shop located in the heart of the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. A spot I knew very well after holding a job there a few years ago. Business was slow so they let us set up in the middle of the store and captured this song live while I sat on the orange vintage couch.
The video will be out on Feb 9 and the acoustic single will release on all platforms Feb 11th. — David Tribble
