“You Can’t Always Be 21” from three-time JUNO Award nominee Don Amero is now available on all platforms. Penned by Gordie Sampson, Simon Wilcox, Tawgs, and Charles Kelley (Lady A), the track lyrically struck with Amero instantly.
“To me, this song is about a second coming of age. I hit 40 last year and really feel like I hit a new stride in who I am and where I belong.”
Lending his velvety vocal and conviction to the song, Amero believes this song came at exactly the right time.
“I guess it’s the opposite of a midlife crisis and more like getting my sh*t together!”
“You Can’t Always Be 21” follows up his singles “I Hate That Song” and the upbeat toe-tapper “Wasn’t The Dress” that went Top 50 at Canadian country radio. In September of 2020, he released his new album “The Next Chapter” which marked a pivotal milestone in Amero’s career.
