Métis Ron Loutit isn’t as widely known as his country music chops, knowing voice and clever and charming lyrics should have him, but that almost makes his old school songs even better, because we’re the lucky ones to hear them.
His bio says his songs “based on love, drinking and heartbreak.” This chipper ditty, replete with a plucky banjo part, delivers on all three. You might find yourself toe-tapping and singing along before you realize you’re chiming in on the bittersweet “sitting here along again, drinking with the moon again.” And that’s a good thing. I like a song that isn’t what you might think it is, first time around.
From his APCMA nominated album Where I Come From, download and enjoy Why Don’t You Call.
