“I can’t tell you how many things I’ve seen, or times I’ve told somebody else that I loved them the most,” sings Nashville’s Charlie Abbott in his new single, “Friends and Formers.” The conversational song, recorded by Joshua St. Moblo at the Bakery in Nashville, features supporting vocals from fellow Music City artist Nightingail. Laced with wistful longing shored up by resolve and hopeful optimism, Abbott takes stock of the finality of a situation and looks forward to the future as he travels a somewhat familiar road to get there.
“’Friends and Formers’ is a song about the last level of disengagement from someone or something,” Abbott explains. “I wrote this as I was paving a new path in my life, I found solace in knowing I’d been there before and will likely be there again.”
Without further ado, Mother Church Pew proudly presents “Friends and Formers” by Charlie Abbott ft. Nightingail.
