Kyle Park revisits Tough Memories in new ‘Rewind’ video
Kyle Park revisits some painful memories in his single “Rewind”. The backing clip for the song, featured exclusively on The Boot, follows the Texan singer-songwriter as he remembers and writes the song from his trusty red pickup truck.
Park’s new video follows the artist through the songwriting process. Throughout the clip, he scribbles lines here and there as various sights, sounds and memories inspire him. These are all hard times that he would like to go through “rewind” and erase – directly addressed in various sayings: how a relationship ended and when he chose a day with friends over fishing with his now deceased grandfather, for example.
In the final verse, Park recounts how he both passed up the opportunity to see Merle Haggard in concert and wasn’t there to stop a friend from driving while intoxicated. Now, unfortunately, they are both gone.
“Fast forward to yesterday / I’d press pause instead of playing / And take it all,” Park sings every chorus, “but the simple fact is / You can’t go back / God knows how hard I’ve tried / Because life doesn’t always give you a second chance. “
Park co-wrote “Rewind” with Ben McPeak and Bernie Nelson. The single sits just in the Top 25 (No. 24) on the Texas regional radio charts for the week ending July 2.
Park started playing guitar at the age of 14, after his father’s death in 1998, and landed his first paid gig a year later. The Leander native’s debut album arrived in 2005, when he was 20; his most recent album is from 2018 Remember where you come from, his sixth studio disc. Park landed seven No.1 singles on the Texas country charts throughout his career.
In January, Park and his wife Brandi welcomed their first child, a girl named Lyla Marie. Visit KylePark.com for their touring schedule and new music updates.
