A few weeks ago we featured Caitlyn Smith on CML and her song, Tacoma. Usually we like to let a song run its course and have a shot at getting on the CML Chart before we add a new song from the same artist. But sometimes things happen and it’s always good to break the rules once in awhile.
I’ve been hearing this other song from Caitlyn on the Wild Country playlist on Spotify and it’s been one that has stood out. So we’ll feature it here on the site and see what you think. Maybe this one will crack into the top 50 on our chart.
Before You Call Me Baby – Caitlyn Smith
The song is just really cool and it’s like that from the intro with the unique, almost bluesy sounds coming from the instruments. Then Caitlyn comes in with her vocals and you feel like you’re part of something new and fresh in country music.
I think this is a love song, but I’m not entirely sure. I think it’s about someone that was kind of struggling with life and then someone came along and kind of changed their outlook. Things started looking brighter and the world looked a little better.
So I would call that a love song. It’s passionate and emotional and Caitlyn really delivers a strong performance with this one. You can hear it in her voice and it’s not something you get with other country songs right now and I think that’s a good thing.
Let me know what you think of this one.
CML Points: 88/100
