Rockhampton singer-songwriter Rachael Dee no doubt wrote and recorded her new song, ‘Little Eyes’, quite a while ago, so she could not have known that its release is so very well timed – basically, to provide something joyful in a strange week, strange month and strange year.
The song was co-written with Matt Scullion at the CMAA Academy of Country Music in 2018 and inspired by Dee’s son, Connor.
‘When you are in the presence of children, you realise just how magical their little minds are,’ says Dee. ‘”Little Eyes” is about being present, and seeing the magic of the world by showing appreciation and gratitude for the simple things in life.’
Upon release the song reached number 5 on the iTunes Country chart and Australian community radio has embraced the song, which sits at No. 2 on the AMRAP Regional Chart this week. The accompanying video clip was shot by Golden Guitar winner Lachlan Bryan at Connor’s kindergarten last year. It’s a song – and video – you should turn to whenever you need a smile … which will probably be quite regularly for the foreseeable future.
