Van Zant, “That Scares Me”
A theme that’s been explored before. The protagonist compares how fearless he was in his youth, but that his children following that example terrifies him. It reminded me of the Gary Allan hit “Tough Little Boys” and the new Pam Tillis & John Anderson duet “Life Has Sure Changed Us Around.” It’s decently written and performed, but lacks the edge I would expect, given the wild history the singer is claiming in the lyric.
