Nashville has been a huge success, which is great for country music. It seems even more people are coming over to check out the music on the show and other songs from other country artists.
Another great thing about the show has been the music. There have been some really strong songs on the show and featured on the soundtrack albums. I don’t know if that’s surprising, but it’s been great either way you look at it.
Another great song from the show has been getting attention. It’s from one of the shows stars. Lover her character or hate her, it’s Hayden Panettiere.
Hypnotizing – Hayden Panettiere
Based on my observation the two most difficult things in songwriting have to be melody and simplicity in lyrics. It seems like anyone can write a bunch of words, but only the good ones can make the cuts to get only the words that are necessary into a song. And melody seems to be either strokes of genius or countless hours of hard work.
Both are in this song. The melody is incredibly catchy. I wasn’t sure who the song was by when I first heard it, but just by listening to it there was the sound of a smash hit song.
I’m not sure if the songs from the show have been big radio hits, but this one sounds like it should be. This one stands up against other artists in country right now and you probably have to put Hayden and her co-stars up there as legit country artists at this point.
This is a good song. It’s a pretty basic love song, but the simple nature makes it more appealing to a broad music audience.
