Some of the best songs come from real life struggles, and Nashville-based singer-songwriter Justin Klump's arresting "The Other Side" is no different. The pop-infused Americana tune is a vow to stand beside someone no matter where life leads you.
"I'll keep holding on to you, darlin'/ We don't, we don't know what we're starting," Klump sings. "Plans change/ We're gonna have to see this through/ It's not the first time/ I'm not letting go of you/ We'll get on the other side of this too"
Klump says he was inspired to write the song after watching his friend go through a serious health scare.
"This last summer, I was asked to sing my song 'Sticks & Stones' in the pre-op room for a friend before he underwent brain surgery. While in the room, I was heartened to see the way he and his wife were sources of support and strength for one another in the midst of what I'm certain was a very scary and difficult morning. When I got back to my parent's house after leaving the hospital, I was inspired by what I had just witnessed so I sat down at the piano and started writing," Klump tells Wide Open Country. "I finished 'The Other Side' a couple hours later. This song is about trusting, and holding on to the people you love even when you don't know what's next."
