Kellie Pickler has a new song out and it sounds like a hit.
Kellie has really become a big star over the last few years. It always seems like she’s on the edge of really breaking out again in country music. She had those big first few hits and continued with her second album, but then kind of faded on the charts.
She’s been busy doing other things and doing them well. People love her, but it still takes a special song to make it on the charts.
Maybe this one will get her back up there.
Feeling Tonight – Kellie Pickler
This song is pretty good. It’s a love song and it’s really catchy. I think it’s really well done on the production side. There are some things there that sound fresh and new. It sounds like some of the other hit songs on the radio without taking it too far. It still has that fresh sound.
There is the screaming guitar solos just before the bridge and final chorus. There are the background singers singing the fun OoooOooOoos and Kellie does a great job throughout. She puts her stamp on the melodies and it all works really well.
It’s hard to pick which songs will become hits unless you have an artist that’s on a good run.
This one certainly sounds like it could be a hit. It just has to start catching on with people. I think it could this summer. It sounds like the type of summer love song that people will play while they’re having fun and when songs connect to those emotions they can become hits.
I hope it does for Kellie because she’s unique, fun and great for country music.
