Blue Water Highway comes from the working class, costal town background that has informed the work of so many of rock’s greatest writers and artists.
They take their name from the roadway that links their hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas, to Galveston, where the cops, the teachers, the baristas, and the chemical plant workers travel to work hard and to play hard, blowing off steam, dancing to their favorite bands. Blue Water Highway’s music is the soundtrack for their lives.
“Best Friend” is the first single from their album Heartbreak City, which came out last summer. With a hook that’s a mile wide, it chronicles the lives, loves, and friendships that sustain us.
