Welcome to BuzzMusic, Nick Johnson, and congratulations on your latest release of, “Keep Rocking in the U.S.A.” How did inspiration strike for the creation of this track?
Thank you! I’ve had this song for a while and I really felt the time was right to put it out.
As the creator, what does this song mean to you?
For me, “Keep Rocking in the U.S.A.” is about a lot of things - the initial innocence of the journey and the changes that occur during it, the idea that no matter what happens, life will continue. Things will go on. The show must go on!
You truly paint a vivid picture with your lyrics. How long did it take you to write the lyrical content heard? Could you please share a glimpse into the process?
Thank you for saying that. I really appreciate it. Lyrics are fun for me. I do take care and time when needed! I believe this came quickly (about a few hours). I had the majority in one sitting and then came back to it. I like writing for a character or situations and developing them. The challenge with a song is to capture the story and there’s not a lot of time. Too much fun.
Once touring is able to happen again, where is the first place that you want to perform?
At my mom and dads! Anywhere they want me.
What's next for you?
I’ll continue writing, teaching, and putting out music. Hope to tour and get the people out there singing my songs!
