Can't We Get Along (DVD & Bonus CD)
When we think of 2020, Pat Boone's ''CAN'T WE GET ALONG'' is the song we'll remember.
It was 1991 when Rodney King was badly beaten by the police. That sparked the L.A. riots. When he came out of the hospital, instead of saying something inflammatory that could have sparked more rioting, he was calling for understanding and communication.
I said, ''That's what we need!'' and wrote ''CAN'T WE GET ALONG''. It laid around for almost 30 years until ten weeks ago. The L.A. riots were really about the kind of thing that's been happening all over the country now, and the words to my song still resonate with the protests taking place nationwide in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis earlier this year.
Then it hit me, this should be the anthem of where we are now!
When we think of 2020, this is the song we'll remember.
WENDY MOTEN may have launched her career as a pop/R&B artist signed to EMI who went on to have Billboard and Grammy nominated hits, and taken cool detours into jazz throughout her fascinating career, but her heart clearly belongs to Nashville. Living and immersing in Music City, the multi-talented singer-songwriter has toured with Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Julio Iglesias and since 2016 has been on the road with the legendary Vince Gill, who also produced her recent album, ''I'VE GOT YOU COVERED.''
CAN'T WE GET ALONG is produced by music industry veteran Norman B. Ratner, arranged and recorded by top Nashville session and touring keyboardist Jimmy Nichols (Reba McEntire, Faith Hill), and video edited by Tom Roach (The Osmonds, B.J. Thomas, Oprah).
