LISTEN: David Starr, “Because You’re Right”

Mar 13, 2023

LISTEN: David Starr,

Artist: David Starr
Hometown: Cedaredge, Colorado
Song: “Because You’re Right”
Album: Better Me EP
Release Date: March 17, 2023
Label: Cedaredge Music

In Their Words: “I am fortunate to get to play a lot with mandolinist/songwriter Erik Stucky. At a gig one night, he played ‘Because You’re Right’ and it just stayed with me. Written by Erik, Bob Rea and Chelsea Chaput, the song feels like it’s very much about how people retreat to their respective corners and let their differences divide them. Every time I hear the lyric, I think of the phrase ‘agree to disagree.’ Sometimes, we just have to do that and move on.

“The songs we chose for the Better Me EP include a couple of reimagined versions of older songs, a song written by my duo partner Erik Stucky and friends, and three newer original songs that grew out of the pandemic period. While it’s a digital-only release at the moment, I wouldn’t rule out a CD version in the near future. I’m heartened that folks still buy CDs at my shows and I like to be prepared!” — David Starr
