Mike Aiken’s Your Memory Wins

Mike Aiken’s Your Memory Wins Delivers a Dose of Much Needed Traditional Country to Radio Today

Mike with Guitar

Nashville,
TN (August 6, 2014) –  Northwind Records’ Mike Aiken steers away from
songs about tailgates, beer and first kisses with a tribute to
traditional roots country and life-long love with the release of  
Your Memory Wins.”  As
summer days slip away and school bells start to ring, the anthems of
country music are winding down and making room for more traditional
songs.

 
Billboard’s Chuck Dauphin writes,“The emotional center of the album is the touching ‘Your Memory Wins’.
Aiken cover From Aiken’s critically-acclaimed CAPTAINS & COWBOYS
CD, this soulful song talks about the emptiness that remains after you
lose the love of your life.  Co-written with Austin Cunningham and
produced by Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites) who played electric guitar
and sang harmony on the track, Your Memory Wins” is a true traditional country ballad with haunting pedal steel and melancholy baritone guitar.

“When Austin and I set out to write a
traditional, cry-in-your-beer, country song I don’t think either of us
thought we’d truly catch it this well,” Mike Aiken says, “I’m really
proud of how this song turned out.  It took us over a year to finish and
during that time we both had things happen in our lives that took the
song even closer to the bone.  The icing for me was when we got the
legendary Dan Dugmore to track pedal steel.  That dude can reach in your
chest, pull out your heart, wring it out and put it back.  Add the
baritone and you’re walking down lonely street… one step closer to
tears.”
