The Highwomen’s ‘Crowded Table’ Is Open to Everyone [Listen]
The long-anticipated music supergroup the Highwomen are offering everyone a seat at a "Crowded Table" with their encouraging new song.
The group consists of country music and Americana heavy hitters Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Natalie Hemby and Amanda Shires. Hemby, Carlile and legendary songwriter Lori McKenna wrote "Crowded Table," which features the group weaving in and out of unison and gorgeous harmonies. The tender tune revolves heavily around sincere lyricism, featuring themes of family and the loved ones you come home to at the end of the day.
"I want a house with a crowded table / And a place by the fire for everyone / Let us take on the world while we're young and able / And bring us back together when the day is done," the Highwomen sing in the chorus.
The lyrics accurately represent the ideals behind Highwomen: inclusivity and a place for everyone to belong and feel welcome. This is especially prevalent when the group sings in unison on the bridge, "Everyone's is a little broken / But everyone belongs."
"Crowded Table" is the latest release from Highwomen's upcoming self-titled debut album, which is set for release on Sept. 6. The group are set to make their official live debut on Friday (July 26) when they perform at the Newport Folk Festival.
The song comes only a week after the group released their debut single, "Redesigning Women" along with the accompanying music video.
The Highwomen's "Crowded Table" Lyrics:
You can hold my hand / When you need to let go / I can be your mountain / When you're feeling valley-low / I can be your streetlight / Showing you the way home / If you can hold my hand / When you need to let go.
I want a house with a crowded table / And a place by the fire for everyone / Let us take on the world while we're young and able / And bring us back together when the day is done.
The door is always open / Your picture's on my wall / Everyone's a little broken / But everyone belongs / Yeah everyone belongs
