Waterloo Revival Strip It Down for ‘I Could Get Used to This’ Acoustic [Watch]
Waterloo Revival have launched a new video series called Nashville Acoustic Sessions, during which the country duo record acoustic videos of their music. In their first video, bandmates George Birge and Cody Cooper introduce new song "I Could Get Used to This," which appears on their debut EP Front Row, released earlier this year.
The acoustic clip was shot in black and white and shows the band in the studio performing the stripped-down ballad. "I Could Get Used to This" was co-written by Birge and Copper, along with Nashville hitmakers JT Harding and Jimmy Robbins. The duo say the song was one of their favorite writing experiences, as the guys revisited the excitement and anticipation of starting a new relationship.
“We were sitting in Jimmy Robbins’ studio when we were writing it,” Birge told Taste of Country earlier this year. “We were starting the second verse, which is probably my favorite line of the song, and Cody was like, ‘Whenever I used to try to get away with my girlfriend in high school, we would go to this development where none of the houses were built, and we’d drive in the streets back there and park the car.”
In the song, Waterloo Revival document this exact scene. “That time we were heating up the winter chill / Subdivision where the houses weren’t even built / Writing your name on my window with your fingertips,” they sing.
Waterloo Revival have had a successful 2016 so far, as the band signed with Toby Keith's record label, Show Dog Nashville, earlier this year. They are currently on the road with Keith for his Interstates & Tailgates Tour.
