Jessie James Decker has been working hard for years to breakout into the country mainstream. She had a pop hit nearly a decade ago. Then she kind of moved over to the country world, which seems to be where she feels comfortable.
But she still brings some of that pop influence to her country music. And I’m definitely okay with that. There are lots of artists right now that are bringing all kinds of influences to their country music.
And that’s what country has always been about. A place for artists to connect with real life emotions and events. A narrative on everyday life.
Anyway, here is a song from Jessie’s latest album that has been catching a little fire on Spotify.
Almost Over You – Jessie James Decker
Interesting theme going on here. We have two people that seem to have a lot of history. They’ve been together in the past. That’s what it seems like. They were getting over each other. They knew they weren’t good for each other.
But now they keep coming back to each other. Probably for the worst. But it feels like the best. There is something that pulls them together.
That voice you hear on the song with Jessie is Randy Houser. He’s one of the modern day traditionalists that’s been able to blend modern with traditional and I think he does it well on this track.
Will this one be the first big hit for Jessie? It sounds like it could be. It’s got a place on Hot Country on Spotify.
