LISTEN: Drew & Ellie Holcomb, “Bones”

Jan 18, 2023

Artist: Drew & Ellie Holcomb
Hometown: Nashville, Tennessee
Song: “Bones”
Release Date: January 18, 2023
Label: Magnolia Records/Tone Tree Music

In Their Words: “We are not just the sum of our genes or the simple organization of atoms, we are the stories we have been told and keep telling, our love stories are songs and metaphors, ways of making sense of beating our isolation by cheating time and cheating death with the one we love. ‘Bones’ is a back-and-forth conversation between two lovers, sharing the way the stories they tell about each other are the ties that bind them together. This song is so many things to me. It’s love and play and truth and dare and gratitude that found a melody for the breath that’s in our lungs and for the life that we get to make together. Drew has been known to say that marriage is about beating death. I think he’s right. Love has a way of making meaning out of the time we have here, even in the midst of all the tragedies we experience. I hope this song reminds all who hear it that we really don’t have to do it alone.” — Drew & Ellie Holcomb
