Here is something definitely different than what you’ll hear coming out of Nashville. This is something entirely different, but if you’ve been a fan of country music or a while you’ll recognize some influences in this song. But it also has a fresh sound, which is also great to hear.
Check out the new song from Rick Elliot.
Let It Shine – Rick Elliot
Listen: Let It Shine – Rick Elliot (on For The Country Record)
I really like the uptempo nature of this song. You feel like you’re going along for a fast ride that will take a long time and you’re not even sure how you got on board. But you’re seeing everything happen and just taking it all in as fast as you can.
From what I can tell the song is about life, but maybe a little bit about a guy who’s made some mistakes in the past. I can’t tell for sure what those were, but he recognizes them now and maybe is trying to move past them. He’s not going to let people burn him again if he can help it.
The lyrics seem deep. I’m not sure if we’re supposed to understand all the meaning behind them especially with just a couple listens.
For the first few listens it’s more about the music and the melody. And those are top notch. It’s a song you can get stuck in more than once.
I like it. What do you think?
