Little Big Town is coming off their huge album, Pain Killer. Actually, they released a pop album earlier this year that had some good songs on it, but it wasn’t meant to connect with country fans.
Now they’re back with a new country single and it’s a good one. It has a country story and it’s unfortunately something that many people can probably relate to.
Better Man – Little Big Town
The story here is that a woman is struggling with a guy that she used to be with. They’re no longer together for whatever the reason. But it seems that the woman had to finally end things.
She kept wishing that he would become a better man. She kept wishing that he would change and become the man that she wanted, but that day never came. She had to finally call it the end and realize that this guy would not change.
How many people have gone through this in life? We’re taught to stick things out. We’re taught not to look for perfection in the world because perfection doesn’t really exist. But we can’t settle for things in life either. We can’t be with someone that doesn’t meet our minimums.
So I guess it’s all about balance.
This song is good. It’s got a hint of sadness to it and the music and melodies match that feeling. The incredible Little Big Town vocals and harmonies are there and they bring depth to the song. It’s really good.
What do you think of this one?
