Taylor Austin Dye and Her New Song, “Rest In Peace”

Kentucky native Taylor Austin Dye has just released her brand-new song, the murder ballad “Rest In Peace.” With a bond of love and an appetite for revenge, “Rest In Peace” tackles a serious issue with humor and grace. This single features rich tones and old-school Americana vibes, which Taylor Austin Dye delivers with her strong and full-spirited country voice.

“Rest In Peace” is a playful take on a grave issue. Instead of lecturing listeners on the subject of domestic violence, it presents a tale of revenge against a backdrop of sibling love. This song is driven forward with an infectious groove of jangly guitars set against a tight rolling country rhythm.

With lines like “He was living on borrowed time” and “’Cause blood’s thicker than whiskey,” this song tells the tale of a drunken and abusive partner who gets what’s coming to him. The song is told from the perspective of a big sister who performs the fateful deed after learning of her little sister’s abuse via a late-night phone call: “She called me up at a quarter past three. ‘Big sister, he hit me.’”

“Rest In Peace” is a bold song that takes no prisoners — in a very literal sense. Instead of complicated moral ambiguities and complex laws, it presents an idealized world where family rules and problems are dealt with in-house. As a playful take on a serious issue, the song could even be a cathartic release for victims and their families.

Country music is known for its storytelling, and revenge without consequence is one of the oldest fantasies of them all: “Who did it? Who done did it? Take it to the grave, baby, rest in peace.”
