The Story behind Shane Barnhill’s ‘Take Away’
Shane Barnhill's new song 'Take Away' is a very special song for him. He told us the song's lyrics are very personal,
"I found this song when I was moving from my childhood home that I lived in for 36 years . The house was one of the last physical connections I had with my Dad. That's where music started for me, playing music with him in that house. The song was in a notebook I'd never seen before, along with other songs, but this one grabbed me . It was just a verse and chorus. I wrote the second verse and the arrangement. My Dad worked a lot and was gone a lot, just like me now, when he was my age which was around the time he wrote this. My Dad passed away when I was twenty years old after a 5 year battle with heart disease, so the song has two meanings. One is a relationship with your wife, the other to me is him telling us from Heaven he hopes the good outweighs the bad. It was a rough 5 years when he began getting sick and was hard on us to see someone so strong get sick . Instead of him taking care of us we were taking care of him . I find myself always telling my wife that I'll slow down and not work and play music so much . I've said it a million times . There has been good times and bad times, just like any relationship we have all been in, and you hope the good outweighs the bad."
