It’s been about two years since Canaan Smith first appeared on the charts. Back then his single, We Got Us, didn’t quite crack the top 40 on the charts, but the promise was there.
Canaan has kind of a laid back vibe that he brings with his kind of country music. It’s got a feel to it that you don’t find in a lot of country music, but it’s something that I think a lot of fans will like.
Here is his next single, which again is showing some strong promise.
Check it out and see what you think.
Love You Like That – Canaan Smith
The theme of the song is one that is pretty common. The guy in the song is falling for this girl. He recognizes the kind of love that she deserves and he wants to be the one to love her like that.
That concept is not new in country music, but that’s not the point. The idea here is to come up with new ways to sing about the things that people care about most. And for people that are falling in love and having these emotions, this is the kind of song they can relate to.
The melody is strong. The lyrics are good and the entire package of the song sounds fresh. It’s mostly due to Canaan and his style. Again, it’s that laid back style that makes him sound different than other artists on country radio right now. It’s the kind of song that makes you kind of tap along and nod your head as you’re driving along the backroads.
