Hard to Wave Goodbye in Handcuffs is your typical, twisted love-gone-wrong song. It's a simple story of domestic bliss that inevitably results in handcuffs and regret (and all to a happy little melody!). It was one of the first songs we wrote and recorded and is still one of our best known and most played songs. It garnered even more attention in the Summer of 2009 when CMT decided to use it and another one of our songs for the soundtrack for their TV reality show, "The Chopper Challenge". Since then it's been played numerous times on terrestrial and online radio and podcasts. It was even used in the independent film, "A First Time for Everything".
While multi-hyphenated mashup genres have become familiar to music fans, one combination I think we don't see nearly enough is psychedelic-country. There's no reason it can't work. After all, it was always David Gilmour's secret weapon, and one could argue that Journey of the Sorcerer is the best thing The Eagles ever recorded.
None the less, you don't see psych-country come along often. Thankfully, Overman appears to agree with me. They've fully embraced this sadly under-represented subgenre with their first full-length release, The Future Is Gonna Be Great .
