Paul Overstreet ‘Seein’ My Father In Me’ – Flashback Friday
Father’s Day is this Sunday so I thought it would be appropriate to give ya a classic tune about Dad for this week’s edition of Flashback Friday.
We go back to 1990 for a big #2 hit from Paul Overstreet called “Seein’ My Father In Me.”
This was the fourth single released from Paul’s 1989 Album “Sowin’ Love” and reached number two on the Billboard Country Charts in March of 1990. It was the biggest hit of his career until later that year when he scored a Number One with another Dad song “Daddy’s come Around“.
Paul has had a number of big hits as a songwriter as well. He wrote “Love Can Build A Bridge” for the Judds, “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy“ for Kenny Chesney, “The Truth About Men” For Tracy Byrd and “Some Beach” for Blake Shelton. Randy Travis can thank Paul for many of his hits as well as he wrote “Diggin Up Bones” “Deeper Than The Holler“, “On The Other Hand” and “Forever and Ever, Amen“.
Once again I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past and be sure to check back again for another great memory next week. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there! Especially mine. This song certainly rings true, over the years I have seen that I am alot like my father! Love Ya Dad!
