Georgia is tearing it up in country music.
I guess the movement of artists from Georgia is not new, but it sure seems like they have quite a few artists on the charts right now. There’s Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan and soon to be star Thomas Rhett. There are so many others as well. It’s hard to keep up.
But there’s a new artist on the scene and he’s looking for his place in country music too. Check out the new song from country newcomer Cole Taylor.
That Makes My Neck Red – Cole Taylor
The first thing that sticks out to be about That Makes My Neck Red is the melody. This song is catchy as anything. I was catching myself singing along with the chorus by the end. And You know I had to play the song back a few times to get a few more good listens. It’s a great track that is the perfect debut single for a new artist.
Now, the redneck thing has been pretty familiar in country for a few years. It’s been around for quite a few years actually. I thought it had run its course there after being worn out about five years ago, but when a good song comes along it really doesn’t matter what it’s about.
And I think That Makes My Neck Red is more about who Cole is. The song is a great introduction to a guy that’s from the country. He loves his rural life and he’s just looking to have a little fun while playing some good country music. I can respect that.
This is a good track from a new artist. Cole has been building his career up from nothing and has some really great stuff planned for the upcoming year. He’s been opening for some big acts and has been playing bigger and bigger shows. The future looks bright for this Georgia boy.
