Get ready for some rocking country. That’s what you get when you turn on this new song from country artist, Hicks. I think it’s pretty cool that he has a single stage name. His real name is a little different and maybe hard to pronounce so he made an easy stage name. And it stood out to me because my wife’s maiden name is Hicks.
But let’s get into the song.
Hayride – Hicks
This reminds me a little bit of Keith Anderson. He had a few real big hits just a handful of years ago. He had this big boisterous voice that was really rocking while still being country.
And that’s what I hear in this song from Hicks. It’s a little raw and has a live feeling, which is pretty cool. There is definitely a ton of energy, which you won’t get with a lot of country music right now.
There are a lot of party songs or songs about having a good time out right now, but I would say that this one is more of a throwback. It reminds me of the country songs that came out in the ’90s. It’s a little more twangy and a little more country in terms of imagery and really having a good time out on the farm.
Overall I would say it’s a good song and from the looks of things people seem to be liking it. You’ll have to let me know your thoughts on this one in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!
