Gowa Gibbs noticed that Country music at times seem disconnected from the everyday struggles and triumphs of ordinary people. Fueled by a desire to bridge this gap, she created “On the Fence” to resonate with listeners who are simply trying to get by.

One of the most poignant lyrics of the song, “I learned the hard way, there’s nothing to prove, some things just ain’t worth the time. Roadside be rough but to tell you the truth, it tends to be well worth the ride,” shows that not every battle is worth fighting and that sometimes, the journey itself is more rewarding than the destination. Even when the road is tough, the experiences along the way can be profoundly valuable.

“On the Fence” provides hope, solace, and motivation to listeners who are navigating their own challenges. Gowa Gibbs sings passionately, “My mind’s on the run and I’m chasing the wind. Got my foot on the gas and my heart on the fence.” The genuine nature of the song aims to remind listeners that they are not alone in their struggles and that, ultimately, the journey consists of following the creek where it leads.

“I don’t know the words but I’m singing it.”

“As a songwriter, what I want most is to feel relatable and encouraging. A lot of Country music these days can feel out of touch with what it’s like for those of us just trying to get by. I put my heart into this one. I’ve tried a lot of things and I’ve failed at plenty but I can promise you I’m never gonna give up. This song is an honest testament to how I feel. Thank you to everyone who has listened, streamed, shared, and encouraged me to keep going.” – Gowa Gibbs stated

“On the Fence” serves as a powerful testament to Gibbs’ understanding of human struggles and hopes. Lines such as, “I’m always winging it, I don’t know the words but I’m singing it,” reflect the uncertainty and improvisation inherent in life’s journey. This sentiment is something many listeners can relate to, as it mirrors their own experiences of navigating through unpredictable circumstances.

“I get my hopes up just to reel them in, but I’ll try again,” encapsulates themes of perseverance and resilience. Despite the setbacks and disappointments one might face, the determination to keep trying shines through, offering a beacon of hope to those who listen. The phrase, “but I’ve learned to let go, the sun’s gonna rise and the river will flow,” adds an element of acceptance and optimism, suggesting that better days are always on the horizon.

Ultimately, the relatability and encouragement embedded in Gowa Gibbs’ down-to-earth songwriting build a strong connection with her audience and affirm the power of her music as a medium for shared experiences and emotional solace.
