Playing now and every day on Australian Country Radio.
A Murder-ballad with little redemption for the poor soul who gave the empty vow that there'd be no "foolin' around". Thats how Amber Joy Poulton describes the song "Not Foolin' Around".
"I've always been a fan of murder-ballads. I love that they can sound sweet & almost like a love song but if you listen closely to the words you can hear the sinister side of love & the fine line between love & hate."
"A love fool who even though he's a "player" still wanted to marry this woman who made him promise there'd be no "foolin' around". Of course he couldn't keep his promise or his eyes from wandering so she took matters into her own hands, gave him a shovel, made him dig his own hole & the rest is songwriting history with lyrics like, "now you're lying in the grave you dug six feet in the ground. Maybe now you'll realise, I'm not foolin' around".
