I Can’t Change The Rhyme from Chris Jones

Mountain Home Music has released another single this week by Chris Jones & The Night Drivers, taken from their current album, The Choosing Road.

This time it’s one that Jones wrote and delivers with his signature deep baritone voice. I Can’t Change the Rhyme is sort of a song within a song, using the metaphor of composing a lyric to describe the dissolution of a love affair.

Chris says that it came to him as he was fooling around with a lick on his guitar.

I Can’t Change the Rhyme started with the idea of not being sure whether the relationship is truly over or not and so being unable to close the book on it.

I Can’t Change The Rhyme and The Choosing Road are available now wherever you stream or download music online, and to radio programmers via AirPlay Direct.
