Who would have thought that Kristian Bush’s solo career would be off to a better start than Jennifer Nettles’s right now?
Obviously it’s not a competition. The two seem to very encouraging of each other as they pursue solo projects while putting Sugarland and the big machine on hold for a while (they’re coming back at some point right?).
Kristian’s first single climbed into the top 25 and got some really strong play on country radio. It was catchy and upbeat and it sounds like he has another good one to follow it up.
Light Me Up – Kristian Bush
If there was one thing Sugarland was really good at it was coming up with a catchy melody. They are good at many things, but they had some really catchy songs and maybe Kristian had more to do with that than he got credit for. The man has found another catchy melody with this one.
This is another one of those songs where you’re singing along by the end of the first chorus. And the song seems to build just a little bit with each verse and chorus and by the end you’re really feeling the song and its meaning.
The song seems to be a love song about how this person feels about the person they care about most in the world. They recognize all the special qualities that person has and how lucky they are to be with them.
Great song with heart and to me it sounds like another solo hit for Kristian Bush.
