American Young is one of my favorite new duos. They released a new album earlier this year and there are some really good songs on it. I don’t think any of the singles have been met with huge success at radio, but there is definitely potential.
I also think that I thought American Young was an independent act, but now it looks like they’re on Curb Records, which has a long history of launching new careers.
It’ll be interesting to see if AY can build some momentum. I really like this new one that popped up on Wild Country on Spotify.
Be Here – American Young
This song covers an important topic. We all have smartphones, TVs and all kinds of good stuff these days. But are they all good?
That’s what AY is exploring in this one. We’re very “connected” in life today when it comes to being able to see updates on Facebook and videos on YouTube and things like that. We could go through the day with constant contact with information of all kinds.
But does that leave us needing more in-person contact and connection with the ones we love? I don’t know if it’s a good thing that couples and families sit on the couch on their phones without talking to each other. There needs to be that personal connection.
That’s what this song is about. The couple is realizing that they need to rekindle the flame a bit.
Great song from a great new country act.
