Song Premiere: Seth James Stands Up for Family Ranches on Impassioned 'Third Generation'

Todd Purifoy

Singer and guitarist Seth James grew up in rural west Texas, surrounded by family-run ranches. Those same ranches inspired James' fiery country-blues song "Third Generation," the latest release from his forthcoming album Good Life

James says "Third Generation," co-written with Cody Canada (his former The Departed bandmate), was written about the hardworking people who kept family ranches running for generations.

"'Third Generation' is a song I wrote with Cody Canada out of my frustration from watching family farms and ranches being lost to the newer generation," James tells Wide Open Country. "It's a very sad thing to see, however it happens often where I'm from. Those farms and ranches are very important for many reasons, but mainly for the kind of people that they produce. We need those kind of people now, more than ever. "

Listen to "Third Generation" below.

Good Life was produced by Kevin McKendree and recorded at The Rock House in Franklin, Tennessee.
