Singled Out: Cal Ecker's I Will Love You

Today Cal Ecker tells us about his new single "I Will Love You" from his forthcoming self-titled album. Here is the story:

Sometimes love can be an uphill battle. Going to great measures to prove you care about another person can make you feel like you're desperately fighting against all odds. "I Will Love You" is about the determination it takes to do that. It's a classic love song.

As a musician who's trying to build a career up from the ground floor, I'm on the road a lot. I'm always traveling, moving from city to city, and working crazy hours. It's not exactly the lifestyle someone looks for in a partner, and it makes keeping a relationship difficult.

When you're on stage and in the spotlight, you can appear like you're this larger-than-life star. But it's not real. I joke with friends at times about the make-believe nature of it. But to the people in the audience, you are the rock star image they see. They don't believe you could be a one-woman man, because it doesn't fit the idea they have of a rock star. So when the girl I love thinks there's no way I can be true to her because she believes what she sees on stage, it's frustrating. I have to work extremely hard to get her to see the real me.

In this song, I'm crying out to my girl, begging her to take me seriously when I tell her how much I care about her. "I will love you, please believe, you are all I ever need," states the chorus. It's about reassuring her that she's more important than anything that success and fame can offer, regardless of how glamorous they seem. She'll never be replaced, because nothing can compare to true love.

This song doesn't just apply to me, though. I like to picture a story about a soldier coming home from war to see his wife. He crosses the world to get back to her, and when he finally makes it, he tells her he's there to stay.

Someday, I'll be able to be like that soldier. I'll be able to come home and stay for good. But until that day comes, I need my girl to have faith in my love.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
