Today we’re looking at the latest single from High Valley. I’m late to the party on this one again. It’s already a top five song on the Canadian country charts. I don’t know if it’ll get any airplay in the US, but you never know. And I like discovering new songs for myself and I like this one.
So here is the latest hit from High Valley. I’d be curious to see what you think.
Come On Down – High Valley
This is one of those songs that makes you smile. It makes me smile anyway. I kind of get a picture in my mind of a barn get together on the weekend where there is good music playing so people can get up and dance a little bit. There is plenty of laughter and a whole lot of fun and good times.
It just kind of has that wholesome sound to it. It’s not overly complicated or trying to cure cancer or anything like that, but not every country song needs to do that.
I think the song is general about anyone that wants to come out to the small town community to live the good life. It’s an invitation for those things.
But maybe it’s also a guy asking his once girl to come back to small town life. Maybe she went to the city. I don’t know if that’s the case. I’ll lead toward the first inclination.
What do you think of this one? I think there is a reason it’s been a big hit in Canada. It’s a good song.
