Music has the power to touch the listener in so many ways, music can literally take you places you’ve never been!

Emerging country artist Aaron Tanner does just that with his latest offering titled "Hallways Of My Mind". The talented musician takes us back to his humble beginnings, all the while affirming his faith in The Lord at the same time.

"Hallways of My Mind" is about remembering where you came from, what you've been through, and acknowledging that God is the only reason you're still here. I wrote it the night of my 30th birthday. I guess I thought I was getting old. I just started thinking about my life and that's where the song came from.

“We all have memories stuffed into various places in our minds. It's a lot like rooms and hallways, and sometimes we wander around in there and dig up things from the past. Some good. Some bad. But what was it Dolly Parton said? "What doesn't kill us just makes us stronger.", said Tanner, while speaking to Urban Craft in an interview recently.

As to the video itself, Tanner said he was more than satisfied with the final product and hopes that his fanbase and music-lovers alike will also feel the same way.

“I think the director, Mil Cannon, did an awesome job capturing the essence of the song. Originally, I had never planned to do a video for this particular song, but my producer, Chuck Hutcheson, convinced me that making a video would be a good idea. However, the budget we were running with didn't allow for anything super elaborate, so I had to pick one of my songs that would fit a simple style of video, and "Hallways of My Mind" is what I settled on. And I'm glad I did.”, he said.

Delving deeper into the project, this is what the singer had to say,……..

“It was actually a very painless process. We met at the property, which is a wedding and party venue called DoeLee Pecan Plantation in Lumber City, GA, that afternoon and just began shooting. Mil told me his ideas, which were great, and I basically just followed his lead. We did many many takes. The scenes where I'm singing we actually had a radio that we played the recorded song on while I sang along with it. Then Mil put the actual track to it later. 

“I always thought singers had to lipsync when doing videos, so this was a relief to me. And I don't know how many of our readers live where there are gnats, but in South Georgia there are gnats. Lots and lots of gnats. And that made the scene where I'm singing in the outdoor chapel probably the worst one to film. Do you have any idea how hard it is to sing a song over and over without fanning or blowing away gnats on camera? It makes for a rough time.”, he explained.

Tanner also took the time to open up to us about what he was working on now and for the foreseeable future.

“Well, my EP will be out on CD by the time this is published. As far as shows, it kinda depends on what this Covid thing does. My manager, Terry Richardson, has set up for me to open for Georgette Jones as soon as live music starts picking up again. Also, right now we are in talks about several shows out west in Texas, Nebraska, Wyoming, and a couple other places, but nothing is in stone yet. But I think 2021 is gonna be a good year.”, said Aaron.

About Aaron:

In today's sea of emerging artists Aaron Tanner is sure to stand out above the rest. His twangy baritone voice, snappy chicken pickin', and honest songwriting, make him a triple threat to be reckoned with.   

 Aaron was born into a musical family, and by his early teenage years he was already singing, playing guitar, and writing music of his own. As a teenager, Aaron played and sang in his family's band in local churches, and in his mid 20s he had a 4 year stint as the guitar player for the Southern Gospel group Catchin' Fire. He also was a vocalist and lead guitarist for 2 years for the River Rat Review Band of the award-winning folklife play "Tales from the Altamaha". However, in 2019 Aaron decided to start his solo career.

 Aaron describes his particular style of music as "Too Country for the Church and too Christian for the bar."

 "I've always felt that my music fell somewhere between the cracks", Aaron says. "I try to write positive music. There's enough bad in this world without me adding to it. I write a lot about God. He's given me everything I have, so I try to give back to Him. However, my style doesn't really fit with the Christian music scene, because it is as country as it can be. My goal in a nutshell is to perform quality Country music that a drunk on a bar stool will enjoy, but when he stops and listens to the lyrics he says, 'Hey! He's singing about Jesus!' I wrote a song once called "Too Country for the Church. Too Christian for the Bar", and there is a line that says, 'I just wanna sing my songs with too much guitar and too much twang. I just wanna tell about how Jesus is King.' That pretty much sums it up, man."

Armed with a flattop, a Fender, and half a lifetime of original songs Aaron now travels to any and everywhere that will listen to him. Whether it is just him and his guitar performing an acoustic Americana ballad or he's burning the strings off of his Telecaster with his band, Aaron pours his heart and soul into every song he writes and every note he bends. With the echoes of tent revivals and Telecasters ringing in his soul, Aaron strives to write music that speaks to those sitting on a bar stool just as well as to those sitting on a church pew, and with musical influences spanning from Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard to Ricky Skaggs and Randy Travis Aaron is sure to deliver a brand of Country music like no other.
