Tumbleweed is the new single from 2016 Golden Guitar finalist, Roo Arcus. It was written by three of country music’s heavyweight song-writers, Troy Olsen (Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton), Jim Beavers (Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Faith Hill) and Brett Beavers (Tim McGraw, Billy Ray Cyrus).
Recorded on Music Row at SonyTree Studios, Nashville, Tumbleweed was co-produced by Tim Crouch and Roo Arcus himself. It’s a catchy song about a drifter who blows in and out of town like a “tumbleweed”—the person who just can’t stay still long enough to win the heart of the love of their life.
“When I heard the demo for the song, I knew straight away that I was going to record it,” says Roo. “It ticked a lot of boxes for me. Great melody, it was very country, had a good story that I know a lot of people will relate to, and a hook line I just couldn’t get out of my head.”
