Gunner Scott is an independent country artist. This is my first exposure to his music and it’s a good first impression. He has two new songs out this year and we’ll look at the latest one.
The first thing that stood out to me is that his voice has a nice mix of traditional country while still sounding like it would fit in with today’s country music on the radio. There’s a little Tyler Farr in there.
Let’s check this one out.
Help Me Help Her – Gunner Scott
The song seems to be about a guy that’s struggling with his feelings for a woman. She’s with some other guy right now and the narrator can’t really figure out the situation. He can’t understand why she can’t let go of the guy that she’s with right now.
The the song kind of takes a turn and I think we realize that the woman has lost her husband or the guy that she was with. The narrator is at the grave of the other guy. He’s pleading for a way for the woman to move on, but obviously deep down he understands that she’ll probably never be able to fully let go of the one she was with before.
That’s a tough situation. And it’s a pretty heavy song.
This one will make you think. There is real depth here in the lyrics and in the story and it’s also a song with a good melody that fits the emotion and everything works really good together.
I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this one.
