I can’t believe it’s been so long since Buddy Jewell was winning Nashville Star and having hits at country radio. He had a great country voice. He had a great blue collar background story.
And he had a knack for picking great songs. And he wrote some good ones too.
Buddy Jewell is back with a new EP. Be sure to check out the full thing. I saw it first on Spotify, but I’m sure there are other places you can check it out.
Here is one of the fun tracks…
Diesel Destiny – Buddy Jewell
How great is that melody?
This is the kind of song that would have been a huge hit in the ’90s. Joe Diffie and Sammy Kershaw made a living on songs with this tongue-in-cheek style. And so did many others.
That was kind of when Buddy would have been the perfect fit in country music. I’m glad he found success in the ’00s.
The cool thing is that he’s still putting out music today for old fans to love and for new fans to discover.
This is kind of a cool and fun little song. It’s one you can dance around to, but more than that it’s a blue collar song about a kid that grows up loving those diesel machines. Trucks, tractors and everything like that. I know plenty of kids that were like that growing up and they’re pretty great people these days.
Were you a kid with a diesel destiny?
Let me know what you think of this one.
