Craig Morgan had a big hit in 2011-2012 with This Ole Boy. He had another top 15 hit with Wake Up Lovin’ You. That’s pretty good for an independent label artist, but Craig has been a favorite with country fans for a long time now.
He’s got a new album coming out and the second single was just released. It sounds like the kind of song that could have a shot at the top 20. Give it a listen and see if you think so.
I’ll Be Home Soon – Craig Morgan
This song sounds like a Craig Morgan song. He has a unique voice and he kind of has those powerful moments where he really lets it loose. That’s kind of a signature of his and it’s work well for a long time in his career.
But this one also has the elements of a modern country song that sounds like it would get played on radio. It’s always difficult to tell, though, what songs radio will latch onto. This one has a chance. I’ll say top 20, but we’ll have to see.
The song is about someone that has had a difficult day. They’re kind of lost, exhausted and not really sure what to do. The other person in the relationship knows that it’s time to drop everything and be there for the other person.
The song is obviously in the perspective of a guy being there for a woman, but this can work both ways in a relationship. All of us have those days when everything goes wrong and we just need someone to listen or to sit quietly while we hold each other.
