Gig & Concert News - Tami Neilson Shares 'Baby, You’re A Gun'

Tami Neilson Shares 'Baby, You’re A Gun'

13 May 2022 - 0 Comments

Baby, You’re A Gun marks the second single from Tami Neilson’s forthcoming fifth studio album, Kingmaker, out Friday, July 15.

Opening with sweeping strings arranged by Victoria Kelly, and a lonesome whistle that conjures the same cinematic flair of old Hollywood Westerns, Baby, You’re a Gun is a song about the underestimation of women and the roles society expects them to play. Tami says she was inspired while re-reading Dolly Parton’s autobiography, where she states, “Many an old boy has found out too late that I look like a woman, but think like a man. It is a great mistake to assume that because I look soft, I do business that way.”

Kingmaker also sees Neilson joining forces with the legendary Willie Nelson for the timeless country duet, Beyond The Stars, An official music video – directed by Neilson’s brother Todd and featuring exclusive footage filmed earlier this year at Austin, TX’s SXSW Music Festival and Nelson’s world famous Luck Reunion in Luck, TX – is streaming now via YouTube HERE.

Beyond The Stars – which immediately hit the Official NZ Music Chart’s 'Top 40 Hot Singles' and 'Top 20 NZ Hot Singles' – was further met by critical applause from media outlets around the world:

“Tami Neilson and Willie Nelson meditate on heavy losses in their new duet…Beyond the Stars is a mournful ballad in 3/4 time and it takes a close look at the grief brought on by a loved one’s death. Neilson wrote the song after the 2015 loss of her father and, while Nelson acts as her father’s voice in his verse, it takes on an extra poignancy coming so soon after the death of his sister and bandmate Bobbie Nelson.” – Rolling Stone

Beyond The Stars taps into the painful feelings of longing to be with the one you've lost. Neilson and Nelson's vocals blend beautifully on the emotional and poetic song, anchored by a soaring string section.” – The Boot

Beyond the Stars works to help remedy all loss, giving hope for a reunification someday in the future in the eternal dwelling of the cosmos, delivered via the timeless tones of Willie’s guitar Trigger.” Saving Country Music
