About This Song


This is just a lazy kick back song I wrote for fun one day when I was exhausted from the grind and just felt like chillin in the backyard! Hope you enjoy it.

Feedback Requested


As always, without feedback I could not get better at my craft so it is always welcomed.

Hi Stephen, I think the song has some commercial potential. I recommend to produce it more like a current sounding contemporary Country song.
Instead of ‘the backyard’ I would say ‘a backyard’. The second verse doesn’t really tell something new, consider to rewrite this. Maybe tell us what you gonna do with her in the backyard (dare to be a little bit sexy) I also would consider to place a short bridge in front of the final chorus.

Hi Frank, Thanks for your review, I always look forward to them. This song was written for fun so I guess I never viewed it as having commercial potential, especially since there’s so many “kick back” songs out there. Im sure it’s relatable, but I was never sure the perspective was unique enough. I wrote this one a few years ago now but I agree with everything you mentioned. The 2nd verse doesn’t progress, just re-iterates the 1st verse using different words. I also felt the song needs a change up such as a bridge but never got around to adding one in. I really like your suggestion about adding in what we would/could do in the backyard. Thanks again for a insightful review.

Hi Stephen, I was drawn to your title - very catchy! - and so is your melody. The song has a Brett Eldredge feel? Maybe it’s the phrasing. That’s a good thing! I’d love to hear your vocal out front even more or maybe the track dialed back a bit. I want to hear all the good stuff you’re sayin’! Keep writing! Alexsi

Alexsi, Thanks for the review and kind words! Im so glad you enjoyed the song. I will gladly take the Brett Eldredge feel compliment any day of the week! Unfortunately, mixing and recording isn’t a very strong suit for me but without the money to professionally record all my stuff I just do what I can. That being said, I enjoy your comments because I can only help me get better at it if people tell me! Thanks again for all of your feedback! Wish you much success on your musical journey as well!

Backyard Saturday Night

Written by Stephen Winnett

(Verse)
Worked all week breaking my back
I just need a day to relax
I know you'd rather go out and dance
But if you don't mind I'd like to break those plans

(Chorus)
This might sound crazy
Let's do Saturday lazy
A little drink till we're hazy
And we both feel all right
This might sound foolish
Even a little High School'ish
It would be kinda cool if
We could watch the stars tonight
All I need is you girl by my side
and the backyard Saturday night

(Verse)
I got way too many bills
I just need some time to chill
I know you'd rather have drinks on a beach
But I'll mix some up if you stay home with me

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
