Smokin’ hot electric guitar licks revved by hard-hitting percussion drive the up-tempo track from the checkered flag opener to last call. A hole-in-the-wall dive bar is the setting for the “Friday Night Party Anthem” where “All My Rowdy Friends” and “Friends In Low Places” come together for a “Good Time.”
“I come from a small town and I wanted to paint a picture of a hangout from back home,” said New Plymouth, Idaho native, Seth Alexander. “The song is about hang time with friends, a tightly-knit group of folks that feels like family, at a place that feels like a second home.”
THE BAND IS PLAYING OUR FAVORITE SONGS
MERLE, HANK AND WILLIE GOT IT GOING ON
LADY AT THE BAR LOOKS READY TO DANCE
COME ON BOY DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE
IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT
A LITTLE PLACE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN
IT MIGHT JUST BE A LITTLE HOLE IN THE WALL
BUT A GOOD OLE NEON BAR
IS WHERE I BELONG
The corresponding “Neon Bar” music video (produced by Alexander) was filmed by Sivan Kawany at Donelson’s Pub on the outskirts of downtown Nashville. The video will debut Friday, December 16, 2022, via the performer’s YouTube channel.

ABOUT SETH ALEXANDER” The age-old adage for country music hopefuls is that “Nashville is a ten-year town.” Seth Alexander threw that metaphor out the window. With his “head down,” he was determined to take the fast track to jumpstart his recording career.
The Oregon-born dream seeker moved to Music City in 2018. Within 12 months of his arrival, Seth’s day job landed him a chance to meet with one of Nashville’s respected producers, Richard Donahue. Donahue, who was a former band member of The Accents (signed to RCA Records for 12 years), transitioned to artist development and production. The two quickly developed camaraderie. The working relationship brought Seth into the studio where he recorded alongside the likes of Kerry Marx (Musical Director for the Grand Ole Opry), Catherine Marx and Tommy Harden (Reba’s keyboard player and drummer) and Tony King (harmony vocalist for Brooks and Dunn).
Seth’s musical tastes were influenced early on by the tunes that sang from the car stereo of his granddad’s old red Datsun (Haggard, Jones, Keith Whitley, George Strait and Garth), and “cousin Bobby” who played at fairs and festivals and carried Seth in tow. Seth learned to play guitar as a six-year-old on an instrument that his granddad bought for him at a garage sale. Honing his song craft, Seth took cues from Bobby and two of his favorite songwriters, Craig Wiseman and Jeffrey Steele.
An active member of the Music City community, Seth maintains a steady writing appointment schedule with some of Nashville’s finest; he’s performed at notable venues including The Local, Live Oak and Commodore Grille. He made his debut with the original tune “Millionaire” in September 2022; the corresponding music video debuted on The Country Network.
