So here’s an interesting story.
Bri Bag well was on CMT’s Next Superstar. I don’t remember the show, but apparently she was eliminated early on in the proceedings. She’s back now and has a great new single and video. Check out Whiskey.
Whiskey – Bri Bagwell
That is a country song.
There is nothing more to it. Whiskey captures so much of what people go through that live the country life. Here we have a girl that wishes she could be with a guy. She’s been dreaming of being with him, but he’s always been with someone else. And now that woman has left him and he’s heartbroken. Things should be great, but they aren’t. Now he’s sad and he can’t get over his former love. He’s diving into the bottle and there is no coming back. All the narrator wants is to replace that whiskey bottle and fall in love with her dream guy.
It doesn’t get more country than that.
There are a few things I’d change about the song, but it’s really good. And to top it all off it’s from an artist that’s really just trying to breakthrough to get some attention as an independent artist. Bri Bagwell has a great country voice. She obviously has the talent to become a great country singer and maybe even a star.
Whiskey is a great song. It’s entertaining. It’s touches on a subject that others can relate to because they are living it or have lived it. The melody is strong. It’s a song you can sing along with in the truck and alone at home.
What a great debut for a new country singer.
Don’t you think?
