Steve wrote "Fool's Gold" in November 2020 when he set out to create a good old fashioned sad country song. It starts out slow, but he decided to change rhythm throughout the song so the pickers could go nuts and bring in a bluegrass feel. The song came to life in the studio when he did a scratch track for the band to hear and they followed along with his vision to create a song that has a classic country sound.
The fluctuating pace of the song fits perfectly with the message about a guy who thought he found love, but what he really found was lust. It turns out he was chasing around an idea that wasn’t actually there. While there is no substance to the love he thought he found, the song actually gets listeners thinking deeply about their own relationships. Would you rather lose in love or never fall in love at all?
