The world seems turned upside down these days.
Economies and governments have faltered amid the coronavirus pandemic, while hundreds of thousands of people have unfortunately passed away.
Amid the global health crisis, protests have swept the globe in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death, especially the United States.
Needless to say, things are a little topsy-turvy.
But even in the worst of times, there’s an undying hope for a better tomorrow.
Certainly, not everything is lost – not at all. As Samwise the Brave once said to Frodo during an epoch of uncertainty, “There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”
Meet Thomas Mac and Tony, a charismatic country music duo with something incredibly important to say.
On TikTok, Thomas, a growing singer-songwriter begins by stating, “What’s up, ya’ll? This is my buddy Tony and we just got done writing a song we think the world needs to hear right now.”
With an acoustic guitar in hand, Thomas and Tony let it fly.
Thomas, who’s dreamed of becoming a star since age 14, opens with his clear, gentle voice atop some pristine guitar chords.
“If you judge the world based on TV,
I bet you probably think there ain’t no love to be found”
Reading and watching the news isn’t particularly easy these days.
Even though the world seems shaken, there’s still tons of love to go around.
And much, much more to come.
Tony makes a grand entrance with a beautiful, low croon.
“But today I saw kids of every color
Playing and laughing along with each other
Open your eyes
Love’s still around”
Within the first 10 seconds of their performance, you know it’s something special.
Thomas begins again with some positivity,
“God’s still good,
but I know life ain’t always great”
They subtly move their thighs to the rhythm. The duo’s completely into the music.
Tony re-enters with gusto.
“We’ve gotta stop
Giving so much power to hate”
The lyrics are spot on.
This is perfect given the current state of everything.
A heartwarming, apt message lies on the screen for the remainder of the performance.
Thomas and Tony trade-off the final lyrics,
“There’s one thing in this life I’ve found
If you open your eyes, love’s still around”
Soon, an instrumental outro moves towards a gentle conclusion.
They wrap up their touching performance with smiles and jangling guitar chords.
Their song was breathtaking and beautiful. The sensational subtleties of the composition, guitar, and vocal work, supplemented by the fantastic lyrics, coalesce into something truly spectacular.
The world needs love now more than ever.
Thomas and Tony are like one of those classic duos – kinda like Simon and Garfunkel or Outkast.
I can’t wait to hear their next album! Although they’re obviously both supremely talented, they also complement each other incredibly well.
The charismatic country duo has some serious chemistry. There’s nothing quite like best friendship.
At the moment, their “Love’s Still Around” performance is a viral sensation, with already over 371 thousand likes on TikTok!
Thanks for reminding us, Thomas and Tony, that love is still around.
And thanks for the lovely performance. We need it now more than ever.
