Here is a new one from a new artist. He’s new to me at least.
But as I often find with these new artists, they usually have big followings that they’ve been building for a long time. The idea of an overnight success seems real when you’re just listening to mainstream country music, but things can take years and years to build even in a world with The Voice.
This song is pretty cool. I think it’s different and fresh.
Cold In Miami – Sammy Arriaga
The concept is one we’ve heard before in country. The idea is that this guy has lost out on a girl he really cared about. I don’t know if we ever find out the reason, but I could have missed it somewhere in the lyrics. That’s a reason to give it another listen.
The guy is in Miami. Maybe it’s his hometown or maybe he’s just visiting. But he’s looking around and noticing that the world is really perfect around him. There are beautiful people everywhere. The sun is shining. It’s comfortable and perfect outside. When the night comes the people will be dancing and having fun.
But it’s cold in his world because he doesn’t have the girl he really cared about.
If you’ve been through a breakup or even a difficult situation you can relate to this one. Things can be going great all around you and everyone can seem happy, but in your world things are all cold and not really going well at all.
Cool song. I think it has a chance to be a hit.
