Sam Hunt has kind of made it okay to really experiment with sounds and styles in country music. I guess that country artists have always been able to experiment a little. And there have been big changes at times and a recent one was the style of Sam Hunt.
With all the success he’s had with his debut album you know there will be more artists with similar styles coming in. And I think that’s kind of where this new artist fits in.
Headlights – Filmore
It’s catchy, right?
I like this one. I found it on Wild Country on Spotify and it kind of had me nodding my head back and forth. The opening is a little weird and funky, but the groove makes you want to kind of dance along and the lyrics are smooth and it all kind of fits together nicely.
It kind of sounds like a Sam Hunt song. And I’m sure if it was a Sam Hunt song that it would be on its way up the charts.
But this one is from newcomer Filmore. I’m not entirely sure how to spell out that name. It looks like he spells it a few different ways including F I L M O R E. We’ll have to see how that goes as this song works to gain attention.
The song seems to be just about having a good time. And I’m all on board with that sentiment.
I like this one and I’d like to hear what you think.
