Douglas Riley Redefines Home, Sweet Home With New Single 'Home Bar"
Country Singer Songwriter Douglas Riley’s new single “Home Bar” is a fun upbeat party country song with catchy lyrics! It brings us all back to the comfort of a small town bar where most of us can say we “had our best nights!" Through Riley’s descriptive storytelling, you can picture the friendly faces, neon lights, and ice-cold beer that makes this bar feel like home. Set to twangy guitar and groovy drums, Riley’s song captures the influences he is inspired by including Bob Seger, Joe Diffie and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
“We all should find a home bar, a place we all go bar, really ain’t too far, just down the road bar, where the lights are all neon, we all agree that we’re all friends here, as long as there’s cold beer, I need a home, sweet home bar.” This lyric is where I immediately connected with the song, because everybody has a favorite watering hole!” - Journalist Alex Rae The song also follows the suspense of the potential love story between the main character and Katy, the server at his home bar. You can feel the sparks flying between them as the romance is exciting and electric. Riley’s songs focus on real life experiences since he came from a small- town in Indiana. Home bar is not a song you are gonna wanna miss out on hearing.
