Shari Rowe has continuously delivered when it comes to easy-on-the-heart music to help get us through the pandemic, proven yet again in her newest single “Long Hugs,” coming March 19th. As we approach one year since the world turned upside down, Rowe’s newest jewel offers a reflective and encouraging perspective as we reckon with the ever-changing world we’re living in.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the cancellations, changes of plans, and plot twists in the seemingly never-ending past year, but Rowe takes the opportunity to gracefully remind us to lean into every moment, regardless of the circumstances. As we rush through the dates on the calendar eagerly anticipating a return to normalcy, “Long Hugs” emphasizes the in-between periods that we often overlook if we’re constantly looking forward.
“Long Hugs is about slowing down, but it’s also about seizing the day,” Rowe emphasized. “We’re not guaranteed anything beyond the moment that we’re in, so live in it fully; embrace it and share it. The world needs that kind of positivity, love, and inspiration.”
The new single is a perfect encapsulation of Shari Rowe in a nutshell—compelling yet comforting as her smooth vocals paired with simple harmonies and a classic country production make for a heartwarming anthem that makes you feel at home no matter where you are.
