Bob Schneider’s “I Love This Life” is a refreshing reminder that love is the most important and beautiful thing in life. “I love this life and everything in it. I love this love and I just wanna give it,” he sings in the chorus. In this single, Schneider confesses what we can all relate to. The struggles of life can make us want to “build a wall” around our hearts, but strength comes from authenticity. In the hard times, it is spreading love and a smile that makes life worth living. The easygoing, genuine acoustic single encourages us to seek fulfillment and gratitude through love. We look forward to his upcoming album In a Roomful of Blood With a Sleeping Tiger.
