Curt Chambers – Say My Name: Grammy-nominated Curt Chambers puts all his vocal, lyrical, and sonic talents on display in his latest country single, “Say My Name,” released yesterday and dedicated to his mother Sharon Chambers. The track was co-written with Chris Young and Christian Davis Stalnecker and is out now on all digital streaming platforms.
“Say My Name,” is a heartfelt and beautiful track sure to touch the hearts of mothers and children everywhere. Vulnerable and frank, Curt recounts his unruly behavior as a child and his desire to hear his mother say his name for better reasons than those in the past. Curt’s melodious voice is accompanied throughout by gentle guitar strums, simple but able to elevate the song’s overall tone of openness and honesty.
While this song is specific to Curt’s life experiences, everyone can relate to the feeling of wanting to make a parent or other loved one proud–the feeling of showing how far you’ve come in life. With age comes growth and experience, a wisdom that must be cultivated organically, and Curt expertly expresses that idea while also displaying how that growth can improve relationships. It’s appropriate that Curt would release this track, which is so rooted in the love and respect he has for his mother Sharon, for Mother’s Day.
“I wanted to write this song because when I was a kid I got in trouble all the time. I got suspended from school once a week and was the name you heard at church all the time. ‘Curtis did it’ is what you always heard. As I got older, I decided that I wanted to change how my mother Sharon called my name to a more positive light. I find myself wanting to make her proud not only of my accomplishments but how I serve love to every human. I thought this was perfect for Mother’s Day.”
