“End Of The Grains” by Jeff Batson

A Nashville artist who has already opened for acts like Keith Urban and Hank Williams Jr., Jeff Batson has released his new single “End Of The Grains,” available everywhere now. Originally from Illinois, Batson moved to Nashville to pursue his love of writing and performing. He has over 40 cuts with various writers, including a song on the Grammy-nominated album The Rock by Tracy Lawrence. Through his songwriting, Batson has connected with a multitude of communities, his single “Don’t Call Me A Hero” is one Batson wrote for the firefighters. His music continues to be a source for many to relate to.

“End Of The Grains” starts with “all our days are numbers / at least that’s what they say / we never know how many from the cradle to that grave.” It is an excellent introduction to the song and the thought that life is so precious. Batson uses an hourglass as his main metaphor, displaying that on the cover art as well. 

The country track definitely has some rock influence, with electric guitars lighting up the single from the beginning. Lyrically, it brings home that “seize the day” idea with the chorus ending with “leave with no regrets at the end of the grains.” This concept is one that has been done before, but not like this. Batson is thoughtful and encourages the listener to live every moment, good and bad.

Overall, Batson is a strong storyteller and performer. He is able to write a song with such a universal message that is overall fun to listen to. His writing is clever yet conversational. It is a memorable hook and a great message.
