It’s a pretty cool time in country music. For quite a few years there weren’t any women on country music. The only songs you would hear would be from the major male artists. It wasn’t their fault. Some blamed the folks at country radio and that’s probably a big part of the problem, but eventually country fans started pushing for change and now women are coming back strong on radio.
And here is another new female artist that I think has a good sound and the right kind of fresh music that fans will like. Check out this new one.
Getaway Car – Alyssa Micaela
There are some layers to this song. And I like when a song has layers. Usually the first things to that attracts fans to a song is the sound and the melodies. You kind of hear a song in the background or maybe in your car during your commute and without even realizing it you’re grooving along.
This song definitely stands out in that respect. It has a good beat and kind of pulls you in from the first listen. Then you start listening to the lyrics and realize that this one has some good insight into certain aspects of life in the rural world.
The song is about a young person kind of looking around at the way things on in their town. All the kids are kind of falling in line with falling in love, having a family and living the nuclear lifestyle.
There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s not for everyone.
I really like this song. It’s a strong debut from Alyssa Micaela. I hope it becomes a hit.
