I was looking at the Texas Music Chart the other day and it wasn’t a surprise to see a song from Cody Canada And The Departed up near the top. The band has been making some waves the last few months with a different style of country music.
Check this one out.
Easy – Cody Canada And The Departed
This one reminds me of the songs Merle used to put out. Also a little Cash. You don’t really get this style of music today.
And it’s not totally like the songs Merle would put out. Merle had his own edge, but there is something different in this song. I like it. It’s got something more modern, but just as aware of what’s going on in the world today.
The song is just kind of slow and rolling. You kind of feel like you’re just kind of slogging through the day struggling to just make it as far as you can with the world is against you.
And that seems to be the point of the song. It’s about wishing that life would be just a little easier when everything seems to be stacked against you and you’re not sure what the answers are for making it easier.
The piano solo toward the middle and end is pretty cool too. There are lots of things here that are cool and different. I’m not surprised a lot of people have been connected with this one. It’s going to touch on something a lot of people are feeling – finding their own ways to make life easy.
