I like checking the Billboard country charts every week if I can. There are usually the same old suspects on the chart, but you never know when you’ll see the occasional surprise. I like to think I’m up on all the new country music out there, but that was definitely not the case this week.
I saw that a guy named Frank Foster debuted on the album chart at #4 with his new record. That really surprised me because I had never heard of Frank Foster before. It turns out that he’s been around a long time and he’s had a few albums on the charts now – all independently released.
Here is his latest single and video.
Cut Off Jeans – Frank Foster
This is a story song and you know I love a story song. It’s about a guy that’s remembering a girl or really a woman from his past. He was just a kid back when he saw her on the creek bank swimming in her bikini and cut off jeans. It was a fond memory for the guy as he thought back about 15 years ago.
It’s a pretty cool idea for a song and one that I’m sure a lot of guys out there can relate to. We’ve all had someone that kind of tripped our trigger back when we were kids. And I’m sure there are plenty of women out there that made the young boys go crazy when they would take a dip in those bikinis.
Great song and I’m glad that I now know about Frank Foster.
