This was the first time I’d heard about Jenny and Ashley.
They are a new duo on the country scene. Their sound is a little pop and a little country. This is their latest release. It’s fun and upbeat. Give it a listen and see what you think.
My Kinda Life – Jenny and Ashley
It’s a fun song, right?
Taylor Swift wasn’t the first teen country star, but it’s been harder for teens to find success in country music than it has been in the pop world. I think that’s why most budding singers need to blend the two together if they want to find success on the country charts.
That’s what Jenny and Ashley are trying to do and from the sounds of this song I think they’re doing a pretty good job of making fun country music. There is definitely an audience for songs like My Kinda Life. It’s a catchy song with a topic that can mean something to all the young listeners out there in the audience.
The music fits in the country world. There are the guitars in the background, but the music could also fit well on the pop radio. The melodies seem to have the same kind of hooks as the modern country radio hits. I think that’s a good thing. I can see the kids in the audience singing this song loud as they attend the shows these girls are putting on for the fans.
I can think of just a couple country artists that have found success in their teen years on the charts. Some have had songs about more adult topics, but others have stayed true to who they are. My Kinda Life is about the things teenagers go through in life. It’s boyfriends and girlfriends. It’s about best friends. It’s about summers and the weekends. That’s life for a teen.
I think Jenny and Ashley have a good grasp of staying true to who they are and who is in the audience. It’s good music for the entire family.
What do you think?
Are these girls on their way to stardom?
