Nashville Recording Artist - Mike Bryant / If I Could Only Write A Song / If I Could Only Write A Song
A beautiful song with the most beautiful messageMike Bryant through his musical gifts has a way of making things so simple, so eloquent, and so inspiring. That is exactly what this song is all about. It starts out so smooth and easy like an old time Country Song with acoustic guitars, a trap kit with rim shots keeping time, and vocal harmonies singing the chorus line. This song speaks the pinnacle of the message of Christian Country Music, the message of peace and love for ones brothers and sisters here in this world. The melody is so peaceful and tranquil in the background while he ministers to us. Singing of the hope and power locked deep inside of every man, woman, and child upon this earth, if only we knew it...if only we would believe it. Mike is here to remind us all that the hope and faith all locked up inside of us can only be released by love. Thank you for reminding us of this in such a beautiful song.
WowFantastic song. I hear little bit of a Willie Nelson influence in this song. It’s a great contemporary country song. Well written and recorded. Very good musically. The melody is very strong and I can hear there are some very talented musicians who have worked on this track. Keep up the great work.
You got to love this songThe title is "If I Could Only Write a Song". How appropriate and also somewhat sad. This dude can certainly write a song and it definitely worth a listen. The music fits like a glove and the voice is natural and unforced. It just flows along with the music. There should be a lot more music like this played on the radio and I would once again listen to the radio again. You have written a song that mad us listen, and then listen again. Well done sir and keep on writing.
If I Could Only Write a SongHi Mike. You have some awesome bones on which to build a tremendous song. Do you remember the Coca-Cola song back in the 60's? The song was encouraging others to join together for mutual benefit of others. Might I encourage you to change the words in the one line "If only I could only write a song that would make the whole world listen to me" to something else that did not make you the center of attraction. Please don't get me wrong, but if you could put something in that line such as . . . that would make the whole world HAPPY AND FREE . . . something that they could see as a collective goal to aim for together for everyone's benefit. At least that is the theme that I seem to detect from your song as a whole. ;) The music is a nice carrier for your message, and you have an easy-to-listen-to voice. Nice choice and blend of instruments, and a nice mix. You might want to up the key on your last verse, so as to elevate the sense of importance of what you are presenting for their consideration. Keep up the great work Mike. Blessings, Trev :)
Traditional, Good lyric and performance. Laid back vibe.Great intro and the harmonies are right on. This one is engaging and hits the traditional listeners right in the bullseye. Reminds me of He stopped loving her today and Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys with a touch of John Denver. A little long but wouldn't change a thing this will do well on traditional stations and in Europe. Good message and all the instruments and voices are right on. Keep on writing my friends as this is a good one and worth your time for a listen. Great job!
If I Could Only Write a SongBeautiful well produced song. I love the traditional value to the song. Excellent music arrangement and strong lyrics. The song is very meaningful and captures my attention. Vocals are very nice and heartfelt. Congrats! on a great tune.
reviewed by mikethe artist resembles Willie Nelson in his style and voice. Very mellow and tranquil and suitable on a rainy afternoon. Lyrics were symbolic to the concerns around the world and the point was well taken. nicely done.
Song ReviewVery nice instrumentation -l Ioved the fiddle and steel guitar especially. Loved the lyrics of second verse, but I’d try to see if there were a better way to rhyme verse one. Great melody- very catchy -still humming it!
Great messageHi Mike, I like your Willie Nelson style singing and the nice guitar and steel fills. The song is old fashioned, but that doesn't bother me. Most of all I like the really positive message of the song. The only thing I have to criticize is that the song may be a bit too long. There are not many melodic changes and it tends to get a bit boring.
Mike Bryant's If I Could Write A SongPowerful song ! I thoroughly enjoyed it. The message is so timely & relevant. As a Southern Gospel, Country Gospel, & some Bluegrass Gospel writer I really listen for the message. This could so easily be used as a Gospel song with very minor lyric changes, like write it as if God's is saying If I could find someone to sing my song & so on. The only negative I heard is I would really enjoy your back-up singers on all of the chorus. That harmony is impeccable! My wife & I could harmonise with you easily. Grfeat job!

Those Who See This Review Should Love And Appreciate The Beauty Of This Song. So Musicians Listen To It, Share It, And Don't Forget To Complement Mike Bryant On This Beautiful Song!!!
My review on if I could only write a songThis is a very good Song. I like the concept and the lyrics do tell the story. The music, The production, The mix down, And the mastering Is just about perfect. When the vocals started and throughout most of the song I thought I was listening to Willie Nelson. And Willie would sing a song like this. I don't know if you ever pitched it out to him I know it's something that he would listen to and consider. I like the song a lot and wish you the very best with it.
Great Classic Country song!Hi Mike! I love your song. The intro grabbed me and pulled me in to listen to the lyrics. What a lovely track you have here. I love the crying steel licks. The vocals are pure country, there's no denying this is the style of music we can only WISH Nashville would bring us back to, rather than the hip hop rap snowflake music on the radio they try to pass off as country music!! What a joke! Please keep singing and releasing great songs like this! God bless!
Good o`l CountryThis song gives me Wille vibes. Well played and great vocals. If your`e in to pure country this is it. The lyrics fits the song perfect. And sure you can write a song and a hole LOT more of them. Keep it Country.
If I Could Only Write A SongGreat message Mike. Liked the accompanying tracks. It might add to the song to vary the melody verses and chorus or build dynamics in the song. A dynamic bridge at the end or a key change may do it.
