Is Drew Baldridge’s ‘Gentle Man’ a Hit? Listen and Sound Off!
"Gentle Man" is the second single from Drew Baldridge's forthcoming sophomore studio album, due out later this year. Co-written by Baldridge, Chris Yarber and Robert Arthur, the poignant ballad has the singer looking back at the men who shaped his life in hopes that he'll follow in their footsteps.
“I was raised to always take care of the people around you and to always help someone in need," he explains. "All of my life I have seen great examples of love and kindness, and it has made me want to be a better man; a gentle man. My role models were not only the inspiration for this song, but also an inspiration for the man I am today.”
With hand-clapped rhythms, vivid lyrics and his sultry vocals, the singer gets his point across on "Gentle Man." The memorable ballad highlights Baldridge's vocals — his slowed and deep singing style captivate the listener.
"Then it's soft, slow, nice and easy does it / When it comes to loving you need to understand / That these hands might be calloused just a little / But they can hold you gentle / Baby you make me a gentle man," he sings on the chorus.
Did You Know? Baldridge recently interviewed and filmed several members of his family as they discussed what being a gentleman means to them.
Drew Baldridge's "Gentle Man" Lyrics:
Noon day sun tattoos my skin / Roll on big wheels till I’m thru / Make a living pushing dirt, pushing time to the limit / Make it work make it hurt / Yeah girl, I’m tough / ’Til I get around you, then it’s
Soft, slow, nice and easy does it / When it comes to loving you need to understand / That these hands might be calloused just a little / But they can hold you gentle / Baby you make me a gentle man
Me and the boys run fast through this town / Shut ‘er down more than a time or two / Throwing gravel everywhere, living up every minute / Yeah, that’s us kickin’ dust up / Yeah girl, I’m tough ’til I get around you / ‘Cause when I get around you it’s
I wanna hold every door for you / Wanna hold you all night / Want you to be the only one / Who sees this side of me
Baby you oh, you make me / A gentle man / Baby I’m your gentle man
