about

This debut album, from Lee Gibson, features self-penned compositions ranging from traditional country to Texas Americana to more modern, contemporary country.

Music City News says…”Take the best of Alan Jackson, stir in a little Kenny Chesney ,shake well with Joe Nichols and you have the music of Lee Gibson. This singer/songwriter, as good as any of the above artists, sings his self penned country tunes with a confidence that comes from someone who has spent many years fine tuning his craft.

Production is straight ahead country. No gimmicks, and no slick sound effects showcase this born and raised in Tennessee, down to earth artist. Although he sings in the “traditional” sound of Alan Jackson, the tall and lanky 6’4 Gibson is his own man. The poignant songs on Somewhere Other Than Here, weave in and out of the past. Songs such as Still There, Tennessee Rain and It Felt Right, are sweetly nostalgic, reminding us that life may go on, but the heart stays behind.”

Track Name: Tennessee Rain
Tennessee Rain - written by Lee Gibson & Jay Studdard

Well there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain
Softer than a kiss it'll wash away the pain
hitting you so hard it can drive a man insane
No, there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain

Last night I went down to the Double Deuce
I had to pick her up last night when her shift was through
We took a little drive down to Buffalo Bridge
With the moonlight shining down there off the ridge
So damned hot we liked to burst into flames
The only thing left to save us was the Tennessee Rain

Well there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain
Softer than a kiss it'll wash away the pain
hitting you so hard it can drive a man insane
No, there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain

There's a certain something hanging in the air
Is it the honeysuckle vine or her long red hair
With the good Lord willing & the creek don't rise
We can keep in the truck & just might stay dry
The windows rolled up & her hair let down
Hearts are beating louder than the thundering sound

Well there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain
Softer than a kiss it'll wash away the pain
hitting you so hard it can drive a man insane
No, there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain

She pulls me closer as those clouds roll in
And our eyes meet one more time
Here comes that warm front now the sky starts to spin
Don't know where we're going
Just where we've been.

Well there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain
Softer than a kiss it'll wash away the pain
hitting you so hard it can drive a man insane
No, there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee Rain

No, there ain't nothing else like a Tennessee
A Tennessee Rain
Track Name: What Else Could You Do
What Else Could You Do - Lee Gibson

Well, I sat alone most every night & thought of you
How much pain & misery can one person take
Then I take your picture out – tattered & torn in to
I’ve past the point of where my heart will break

There’s a telephone beside my bed that never rings
On the night stand, there’s some paper and a pen
What a fool I was to ever think you use those things
You’ve learned how to write me off since then.

You could’ve called
You could have listened
You might’ve heard these words I’ve said
You don’t know how much I’ve missed you
Now it’s killing me instead
There’s a part of me that says I can’t blame this all on you
Looks like you’ve tried so very hard
What else could you do?

You say that you needed me
Now you need some time
I should’ve seen that one come a mile away
But on more than one occasion girl, you’ve changed your mind
You never seem here to hear the words I say

You could’ve called
You could have listened
You might’ve heard these words I’ve said
You don’t know how much I’ve missed you
Now it’s killing me instead
There’s a part of me that says I can’t blame this all on you
Looks like you’ve tried so very hard
What else could you do?
Track Name: Still There
Still There - Lee Gibson


I was raised in a small town
On the edge of Tennessee
Nothing much but trouble to get in there
Running down the boulevard
In an Oldsmobile
And chasing skirts never got me anywhere

It's just a small town with a small school
We were big kids just acting like fools
Running the roads & parking up on the square
And I'm still there.

I was ready to get tied down
When I was only 17
I met this girl & damn, I was nothing but blind
There ain't nothing else like your first love
In the southern summer heat
I think we fought just so we could make up all the time

I can still see her sitting next to me
Cuddled up on that ol' bench seat
Looking at her through the mirror
With her hands in her hair
And I'm still there..

And those little shops run by moms & pops
Just can't give me what I need
To find a way so I can pay
& make sure that I leave
out of there

It's still a small town with a small school
We still got kids just acting like fools
Running the roads & parking up on the square
And I'm still there..

Yea, I'm still there.
Track Name: Somewhere Other Than Here
Somewhere Other Than Here - Lee Gibson, Megan Manly, Brian Beathard

We've been in this town too long
There ain't too much holding us here
Nothing left a random job
My lease was up last year
I can pack my bags and be gone
Pick you up at your parents at dawn
We're off - Straight to the sunset.

I've got that old white Ford gassed up
I had the oil changed last night
Nothing left here to my name to make me
Keep up this simple life
I've got'er running are you ready to go
Jump on in honey close that door
We're off & there ain't no turning back.

I'm gonna run like hell
Gonna feel my face in the wind
Don't care to see this town again
I'm gonna set my sights on the road
And find out where that goes
I wanna jump and have no fear
Of landing Somewhere Other Than Here

I've held off nearly all my life
From taking chances just like this
I don't care how far I go
Or where this journey ends
Don't wanna sit around & wait
Til we're too tied down &
Baby it's too late, no
I've got bigger plans this time...

I'm gonna run like hell
Gonna feel my face in the wind
Don't care to see this town again
I'm gonna set my sights on the road
And find out where that goes
I wanna jump and have no fear
Of landing Somewhere Other Than Here
