I’ve been waiting on this one for a few weeks. I heard that Gary Allan had resigned with his record label. And that’s good news. He’s been putting out music with the major labels for twenty years now. He’s always been unique in country music and he continues to kind of push himself to try new things and new sounds. This new song certainly fits in that vein.
Check it out and see if you think it’s a hit.
Do You Wish It Was Me? – Gary Allan
This song is funky and kind of crazy. I don’t really know how to explain the sounds and the production and all that is going on with this one. It just sounds like a guy that is kind of lost and crazy in the world.
The situation seems to be a guy that’s broken up with a girl. They’ve been apart for awhile it seems and the guy is thinking back on their time together. He’s missing it and he’s wondering if the girl is still thinking of him and wishing it was him when she’s with new guys.
The reason he’s thinking that is because that’s what he’s going through. When he’s with someone new he wishes it was the girl that he had. He’s still not totally over the situation.
This is a pretty cool song and that’s totally Gary Allan. He’s always had this really cool and laid back vibe. He’s done his own thing and it’s worked for him.
I’m curious to see how country fans welcome this song. I hope it becomes a hit.
