Let’s head over to Texas and check out what they have going on again. I like to check in with the country music chart in Texas because they still make traditional country down there in Texas. I like what’s on mainstream just fine, but you can’t beat a good dose of Texas traditional country.
Check this one out. Maybe you’ve already heard it.
Life Comes At You Fast – Bart Crow
This is the first time I’ve heard from Bart Crow and I really like it. I’m not sure if he’s been around for awhile. That’s usually the case with the Texas country artists. They have these huge followings and if they get a glimpse of the mainstream we all feel like we’re late to the party.
This song is about all the different ways that life can really come at you fast. You can have your own plans. You can be enjoying life and thinking that things are great and then you get thrown a curveball and you have to adapt.
Ain’t it the truth.
I like the saying that goes everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face. Life certainly can punch you in the face, but if you get back up again you can still live it to the fullest.
And I think that’s what the song is about. And there is a really cool melody. It kind of reminds me of John Mellencamp and that is absolutely a compliment to Bart Crow. It’s catchy and you can groove and sing along with it.
It’s small town America all the way through and that’s as country as it gets. With a little rock thrown in and I’m cool with that.
I like this song. What do you think?
