Bryce Leatherwood bestows some wisdom to listeners through his baritone vocals on his latest release, “Still Learning.” 

The song penned by Dan Wilson, Brett Sheroky and Jessica Roadcap, touches on some of the most important lessons in life, which often end up being the hardest to accept. Leatherwood also reminds fans that even when you think you’ve got everything figured out, there are still lessons left to be learned, just as the song says, “The more I learn how to live, the more I live and learn again.”

Some of these lessons he hones in on include knowing when to head home after a night at the bar, the importance of a work/life balance, accepting that actions speak louder than words and more.

“Jesus saves and time don’t wait/ And not every road you take will lead you home/ Talkin is cheap but love is free and/ Some things change and some things won’t/ But ain’t that the way it goes/ I’m still learning what I already know,” Leatherwood sings on the chorus.

Leatherwood Shares His Love For The New Song

The Republic Records / Mercury Nashville recording artist takes these lyrics to heart as the steady instrumentals complement his charm in a classic country style, making for another must-listen track to add to his discography.

While reflecting on the humble new tune, Leatherwood shared how he feels connected to the story and the aspect he loves most about the song itself. 

“A huge part of growing up is learning lessons the hard way, not always getting it right,” Leatherwood acknoeledged. “I love when a country song can impart a little wisdom, and this song is about: living, learning and realizing it’s okay to make mistakes, because at the end of the day, we’re all still learning.”
