This song has been kicking around for a few weeks. I was curious if it would be the next single for Little Big Town.
They’ve been making waves with their latest #1 in Better Man. The big news was not only the song, which was great, but also the fact that it was written by Taylor Swift.
Is T-Swift coming back to country music? Probably not, but she has roots here and obviously still has connections and it was pretty cool for that song to reach the top spot.
But now it’s time for the followup and it’s a cool little song.
Happy People – Little Big Town
I don’t know if anyone could record a song like this other than Little Big Town. That’s kind of becoming their legacy. They’ve been doing this for a long time. They’ve been through label changes and all kinds of trends in country music.
But throughout it all they’ve kind of stuck with different sounds. They even released a pop album last year that had a bunch of funky stuff on it.
They’re willing to try new things and I would call this one something pretty new. It’s a little poppy and fun. But it’s not just fun and surface material. This has some important things for being happy in life. Lots of neat little lyrics that you can dive into with multiple listens.
I’m curious to see how this one does on the charts. It’s always a risk to do something a little different. I think it’ll be a hit.
Chart Estimate: #5
CML Points: 87/100
