It’s pretty special when an artist gets a #1 hit.
When you think about it a #1 hit is not all that common. Some of the biggest and best country songs have never reached the top of the charts.
And when you think of all the songs released by all the artists over the years there are definitely way more songs than there are number ones out there.
So it’s pretty special to see Canaan Smith have a number one with his last single.
And now it’s time for the followup. Let’s check it out.
Hole In A Bottle – Canaan Smith
Pretty cool choice for a followup.
The first single was kind of a mid-tempo song that was pretty groovy. This one is more of a party song and about having a good time.
I thought maybe it would have been a heart-wrenching love ballad or something like that, but I like the way this went. Sometimes when you have all the momentum in the world it’s good to come back with something that people can have a good time with.
The song is about life and how we all have to take a number of thins every day and every week. We all have things coming at us and it can be hard to deal with.
Sometimes it feels good to just have a drink once in a while. It doesn’t have to get crazy and out of control, but one or two can make all the difference.
The song is catchy. I think that’s the biggest thing it’s got going for it. I think it sounds like a hit.
