I think this is the first time I’ve covered Stephen Wesley on CML. I wasn’t sure what to think of this song. It looked like maybe it would be another fun on the beach song and it kind of is, but I think this one is pretty country. Give it chance and give it a listen. I think you’re going to like it.
All Night Long – Stephen Wesley
When you first hear Stephen’s voice you think of traditional country. It sounds like he could have come along back in the ’90s with Alan Jackson, Tracy Byrd and Mark Chesnutt. But it’s 2015 so you have to throw in something a little more modern than what those guys were doing. So there are a few electric guitars and a few other little touches that make this a modern country song.
But underneath all that is something that’s catchy and fun. That’s what stands out the most to me about this song. It’s fun and it’s catchy. You kind of catch yourself singing along by the end of it. That chorus is right on catchy and you’ll be singing it and I think this song could catch on as we head into the summer months.
There are always a few surprise songs every summer that kind of come out of nowhere and get tons of play. I don’t know if this will be one of them, but you never know.
You’ll have to let me know your thoughts on Stephen Wesley and this song in the comments. Would love to hear what you think.
