One singer to watch for in 2017 is Ryan Hurd. He’s been quietly releasing new songs every couple months for the second half of 2016. Some of those songs have been starting to get some mainstream attention. It seems like Ryan and his team are prepping for the big time in the New Year so we’ll see.
I think Ryan has another song coming up as I’m writing this, but we’ll go back to the last one that I’ve been really liking the last few weeks.
City Girl – Ryan Hurd
This one seems to be about a romance between two people. It sounds like the guy in the situation is kind of treading lightly with a girl. She’s his “city girl” in the sense that she’s kind of living her own single life. It seems like she’s might not necessarily ready for anything serious. She’s nice. She’s wonderful, but she’s not the settling kind right now in her life.
But the guy is starting to see himself fall for her. He seems that he’s kind of breaking his own heart by getting caught up this way. He knows that she’s probably spending time with other guys and with her friends and all that kind of stuff and it’s kind of difficult for him. He doesn’t want to push, but he also doesn’t want to lose her.
Really good song from an artist to watch. This one has a different, modern sound that I think fits well in country music right now. I like this one.
