GuestPost – Will & Chace
The Story of “Some Crazy Left”
We wrote “Some Crazy Left” at the end of 2020 when everything was in such upheaval, and nobody knew what fresh mayhem was around the corner. COVID was virtually unstoppable, and the leaders and institutions we put our faith in had completely let us down.
This song was our Dear John letter to 2020–letting go of what we couldn’t control and personifying the year so we could tell someone exactly how we felt. Emotionally, we wanted to create the “Now you’re exposed, and now I’m free” moment that rejected despair and embraced hope for the future.
Is there still some crazy left? Absolutely. But we also have enough strength and hope to get through everything together.
The Story of Will & Chace
A unique country duo drawing inspiration from current pop and classic rock, Will & Chace make broad-reaching, modern music for the new generation of country fans. Their genre-bending style embraces human nature, humor, and real-life experience, fusing the energy and melodic sense of pop acts like Maroon5 with the heart and candour of beloved country artists like Keith Urban.
Will & Chace’s collaboration began in the studio when West Tennessee Christian pop songwriter Chace Skelton hired Indiana native and producer Will Jennings to develop a new sound for a solo project. “We were on the same page immediately, rewriting parts and trading influences.” Both were raised on country and classic rock, with a shared love for Shania Twain (and her husband Mutt Lange’s production and songwriting) and contemporary, pop-leaning rock groups like OneRepublic.
Now writing and performing as a duo, Will & Chace focus on making songs that feel fun, building compelling music around a core melody or line. Their lyrics explore topics ranging from women and nostalgia to self-discovery and enjoying a good drink, blending subtle twang with a vibrant, pop spirit. “We make the country music we wish were out there already.” With Chace as lead singer and Will handling production and BGVs, the duo brings a new kind of country to Music City with the release of their debut single, “Some Crazy Left,” celebrating life and individuality for better or for worse.

“Some Crazy Left” Lyrics
Girl you took everything from me
I was too close
I couldn’t see
But now I’ve lost all sympathy
Now you’re exposed
And now I’m free
You were hot
You were cold
You stayed young
While I grew old
And it’s clear you never gave a damn about me
I been crying for ya long enough
I been lying for ya way too much
Think you’re stronger but you ain’t that tough
Took smooth sailing and you made it rough
You took everything I thought was mine
There ain’t nothing left to undermine
Every move you make is petty theft
After all that there’s still some crazy left
Now you can’t tell me where to go
Or what to do
You’ve lost control
You even tried to take my truck
With no facade
You’re out of luck
I’ve been wronged
When I was right
But you thought
I wouldn’t fight
Tried to hide me from the truth but now I see
Music and Lyrics by Will Jennings and Chace Skelton
