My wife has been listening to the latest Ed Sheeran album for the last few weeks. There were a few days when that’s all she would listen to. I know the feeling when it comes to listening to music over and over. I have that happen with all kinds of new country music, but not usually too often with pop music.
So I was curious about this Ed Sheeran guy and to my surprise one of his new songs is now on the country charts. Here is that song.
Don’t – Ed Sheeran
Obviously this song is pop, but there has always been a little pop in country music. It’s pretty interesting, though, to hear an English artist playing something that resembles country music. I’ve probably just been missing out. I’m not sure if it’s happened before or not.
I really like this song. It’s definitely catchy and I can see why it’s getting a little notice in the country world. It has a little bit of a folk-feel and sound. The lyrics are about cheating or just about a guy that kind of got burned by a girl.
That’s certainly something that happens often in country music. There have been tons of songs about cheating and having issues with the opposite sex. The lyrics here are pretty literal, but it’s hard to get past that catchy beat.
I don’t know how much higher this one will go on the charts, but I think it’s pretty cool that it’s getting some play.
What do you think?
