This one came across my desk. As I write this it’s the first time I’ve heard the song. The first impression is a good one. I guess I don’t really know what my expectations were for it. I just kind of turned it on without really knowing what to expect.
But it reminded me of something I’ve been thinking about recently…
Are there any country songs out there right now that make you want to dance? I guess I’m thinking back to the line dancing days of the ’90s when people in country were always putting out dancing music.
That’s kind of what this one reminds me of…in a good way.
Barn Burner – Dan Davidson
I don’t know… There is just something about this one that makes me smile and makes me feel like dancing. It sounds fresh in 2016 (heading into 2017) even though it kind of brings you back to those old days when country folks used to get together and do some dancing.
The song is pretty straight forward in the lyrics. It’s a party song about having a good time on a Friday night. But it’s not about the things country singers talk about today. This is about those old barn dances and get togethers that are maybe only seen in history books right now.
It’s a really uptempo and fun song. There is something I think all kinds of county fans would love.
Dan is a new artist from Canada and he’s been getting some big attention up there. With songs like this I can definitely see his star continuing to rise.
