The Country Music Hall of Famer and his sons offer a new take on the Jim Reeves classic.
William Lee Golden and The Goldens — the familial ensemble formed by the Country Music Hall of Famer and Oak Ridge Boys member and his sons — have released their first single from the second of their three new albums. And it’s a keeper.
“Four Walls” was a career-defining hit for the late, great Jim Reeves back in 1957, and has since been covered by artists as diverse as Kay Starr, Bing Crosby, B.J. Thomas, and Ronnie Milsap. Now The Goldens are offering their own distinctive version of the song written by Marvin Moore and George Campbell.
“To me, ‘Four Walls’ is one of the true classical country songs of my lifetime,” says William Lee Golden. “It has a wide range for the singer. It’s a song about waiting for someone you love to come home after they have been out of the town. While listening, you can feel the loneliness with each word, picturing the character pacing the floor. Thank you to Cowboys & Indians for premiering this video.”
The pleasure is all ours, sir.
