Country group Hudson Valley’s new single “Right Place Now” is as catchy as can be, and I’m keeping that song’s infectious energy as I write this quick little post. Truth to tell, my forte is not country music, but after listening to “Right Place Now,” I’m definitely giving this outfit a shot on Spotify.
Penned by Hudson Valley lead singer Sarah Owens, Sherrie Austin and Will Rambeaux, “Right Place Right Now” centers on Owens’ love for her husband and Nashville.
“’Right Place Now’ was written the first time I had ever been to Nashville. My parents came down from N.Y. with me and we had always wanted to go to the Grand Ole Opry, so my mom got tickets for us to see Vince Gill and Darius Rucker perform while I was in town to write. When we left the Opry, my parents said something about me ‘finally being in the right place’ and I wrote this song with Sherrie Austin and Will Rambeaux the next morning. As I was writing it, it turned into a love song about my husband, but it’s rooted in my love for Nashville because it’s the place I felt that I always needed to be. I cannot wait for everyone to hear this song; we are all really proud of it!,” said Owens.
Hudson Valley, which also includes drummer Richie Owens, bass player Andrew Kosek and guitarist Matthew Farinelli, is relatively new, as they released the EP Seven in 2019 (the opening track “Baby Goodbye,” just like “Right Place Now” is as catchy as can be).
