LISTEN: Blaine Holcomb’s “Lessons”

Upstate New York native Blaine Holcomb left all familiarity to move fifteen hours away to Nashville to pursue his music career. Influenced by traditional and 90s country, Holcomb is firmly on the traditional side but with a fresh new sound. He’s opened for national acts like as Easton Corbin, Justin Moore, and Josh Thompson. Since moving to Nashville, Holcomb has performed regularly on Broadway as well as at The Stage, Legends Corner, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, The Valentine, and Famous Saloon. His song “Then There’s You” was added to Spotify’s New Music Nashville playlist. Holcomb considers the primary themes of his work to be love, heartbreak, drinking, partying, having fun, and growing up, although he expects these to change with time. Blaine hopes to leave a lasting, positive impact on fans with his music, and hopes to put on shows that leave people with the feeling that they’ve just attended the best one of their lives.

In his new single “Lessons,” featuring Kinsey Rose, Holcomb reminds us, sometimes we need to fall in life to learn what’s right and what’s wrong. In life, we have to appreciate our failures as much as our successes, because if you take the opportunity, they can build you into a better person. This is something that Holcomb understands quite well and conveys perfectly in his lyrics. The way Blaine talks about learning lessons based on his own experience makes this song feel like you’re receiving advice from a friend.
