This Ole' Guitar

by Catherine L. Tully

Download This Ole' Guitar Today!Thom Meinert does it again, tugging at the heartstrings of listeners with his contemplative lyrics and sincere delivery in his recent release, "This Ole' Guitar." The song is a touching tribute to the country legends of old, and is told as a story of father, son and a love of music that binds them together, communicated through the gift of an "ole' guitar."

The catchy and skilled guitar-work on this track show that Meinert continues to hone his craft beautifully, further refining his already polished style. I have to give rave reviews again for his voice as well--those low tones are just buttery-smooth and a pleasure to the ear. His range is sure and strong; never faltering in the least--and always enjoyable.

Meinert is obviously in love with his chosen musical style--it shines through clearly in the fact that he is taking the time to tip his hat to the fine musicians that have gone before him, and in the passion with which he pursues his music. The respect for his craft is reflected in the reverence he holds for both.

The ease with which he sings and plays the guitar leave you free to enjoy the message that the lyrics deliver. So often, good country music keeps the message simple, yet sings about those moments in life that really and truly affect us all--by highlighting the emotions that we all have in common. Even though the situation in this song may not be one that we all experience, the feelings that are expressed are relatable and true. "This Ole' Guitar" is another fine example of Meinert's ability to get at the core of what we all feel inside, much like his previous release, "Peaceful Someday."

Sweet Music Tonight

by Catherine L. Tully

Download Sweet Music TonightCountry line dance fans everywhere have found themselves a finger-snappin', toe-tappin' two step in Thom Meinert's "Sweet Music Tonight!" This release departs from Meinert's usual flowing, melodic work, showing that he can do a peppy tune just as well--and this song stands up to the best in the genre. You can easily imagine it playing among the favorites on the dance floor.

A fun, light-hearted romp, this song's lyrics follow the path of a band who is touring as they add a lady guitarist to the group along the way. Nothing too heavy or introspective here, and that is part of what makes it a good dance track--the beat and mood of the song are meant to move the feet more than the head. After all, there's nothing wrong with having a good time--and who wants to introspect when you can dance instead!

The best dance music has to have an almost "chugging" feel to it that points out a good beat, yet has enough changes in the arrangement to keep things interesting and fun. It can be quite a challenge to achieve that balance. "Sweet Music Tonight" hits the mark on all counts, showing Meinert is more than a lyricist, but understands music on many fronts and has a wider range than some may have anticipated from hearing his earlier, softer songs. Meinert continues to grow and expand his reach as a musician and this track is proof that he can do it all. What a pleasant surprise!

Peaceful Someday

by Catherine L. Tully

Download Peaceful Someday Right Now!The crashing of ocean waves open this touching track which lifts up a message of hope for that "peaceful someday" that so very many of us are seeking in the world these days. Meinert wrote this song with the soldier and their family in mind, but in truth, anyone can relate to it.

Trying to boost the morale of those that need it so badly, he reflects on the good that brings moments of peace in these turbulent times. The vocals give this song a calm and yet wistful feeling. Meinert's voice is incredibly rich and deep and it fills with earnest emotion as he sings words of encouragement to soldiers and their loved ones everywhere.

The song has a country-style feel to it, with lyrics that at once seem familiar and fresh, the mark of a good songwriter. It has taken off quickly, not only getting radio play worldwide, but also receiving an outpouring of uplifting responses from troops, government and religious leaders, and many others. The song is compassionate, truly reaching out to those who just need a little hope that peace is possible one fine day in this troubled world of ours. With world events hanging in a precarious balance, the time is really ripe for such a song-it relates to the fabric of our time.

With a background in drums since the tender age of 5, some might be surprised that this musician has turned singer, but once you hear the tones in this man's voice, you will understand the switch. Few men can hit those low notes in a way that sounds full and strong, but Meinert's voice was made for that range-all cowboy. The musical arrangement is stellar, but it is truly the vocal sound that makes the track shine. The sincerity in his message rings forth as he sings-giving a little comfort to those hoping for a peaceful someday-and for a time that they are once again free to sit with family and friends and enjoy the good times.

Darling

by Catherine L. Tully

Download Darling Today!If you are looking for a good, old-fashioned and heart-felt love song, then believe me, this is it. Darling is a beautiful track that is made that much better by the buttery sound of Thom Meinert's voice paired with simple, yet elegant lyrics. As a matter of fact, the song is so good that it prompted a "great song" comment from music legend Crystal Gayle. The single has been getting airplay around the world and is really a great example of a classic Americana/Country-style love song.

Darling is the kind of song you see all the time in that "romantic dream sequence" in the movies. You know-the one where the couple is driving, happy and content, wind blowing through their hair-not a care in the world. The imagined scene is from a man's ideal moment with his beloved lady. The lyrics have the flavor of a little bit of longing paired with the confidence that it will all turn out for the best in the end.

The song's impact wouldn't be as strong if it weren't for the depth and feeling that is communicated through Meinert's voice. Few singers have the range that can hit low notes with the authority that normally only Johnny Cash could command, but it is definitely present here and adds warmth to the words. Sweet and yet manly, this song is truly romantic in a gentle and honest way.
