about

Fans of Guy Clark, Tom Russell, Robert Earl Keen, and Kris Kristofferson will be saying “What’s Not To Love About That?” when they hear the latest CD from Nashville-by-way-of-North Carolina singer-songwriter Kurt Fortmeyer. Rooted firmly in the traditional storytelling styles of his heroes, Kurt delivers ten of his best on this self-released offering, three solo writes and seven co-writes with good friends such as "Bo Thomas" Biermann, CJ Watson, and Trent Jeffcoat…all but one written since he moved to Nashville.

Track Name: I'm Not A Fool
I'M NOT A FOOL
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Donald Wood)
The local fire department is good at saving lives
They let me volunteer down there but they don't let me drive
I've coached Little League and soccer but I don't do that anymore
It all went out the window when I walked in through this door

Now I'm the life of the bar room and I'm everybody's friend
When I tell the bartender "set 'em up again"
And I know what it looks like but things aren't what they seem
I'm not a fool I just play one on Jim Beam

A cap comes off a bottle an evil genie casts a spell
Makes me throw all of my money into a whiskey well
I start knocking back the doubles 'til the barkeep makes last call
And I'm too stoned to read the neon writing on the wall

Yeah I'm the life of the bar room and I'm everybody's friend
When I tell the bartender "set 'em up again"
And I know what it looks like but things aren't what they seem
I'm not a fool I just play one on Jim Beam

And I can't help but thinking I could be a stand-up guy
If I could keep from drinking and it's not like I don't try
But when i sit down on this stool a change comes over me
I'm not a fool I just play one on Jim Beam
I'm not a fool I just play one on Jim Beam
