Sometimes a new country song comes along that doesn’t really sound like anything else. I remember when the song All My Friends Say came along from Luke Bryan. There were people thinking it was a little too out there for country. It was too much of a party song.
Well there have always been parties going on in country music.
This latest song is from a band that obviously appreciates a good time. And the song comes around just in time for summer.
The Booze Cruise – Blackjack Billy
Sometimes, myself included, we take country music a little too seriously. We think all the songs should be sad and lonely, but that’s only part of life.
The other part of life is the fun part and that’s what the guys in Blackjack Billy are singing about in this song.
I grew up near the lake and while we didn’t always have booze out on the lake when we were just kids we always knew how to have fun in the summer. Now that I’m older I can appreciate one or two adult beverages out on the lake.
This song may not be for everyone, but for the country folks out there that know how to kick back and have a good time this is a great song. It’s catchy and you can tell the guys in the band (and everyone in the crowd) is having a great time.
What do you think?
