Alright, so this song popped up on Wild Country on Spotify and it immediately stood out to me. I listen to that playlist fairly often and I don’t know who’s in charge of it, but they find some gems and this is another one.
The duo is The Shires. I have never heard of them before. It turns out that they’re from the UK. A country duo from the UK? You bet. And that’s kind of what the song is about…I think.
Nashville Grey Skies – The Shires
Talk about cool. There is just something about this song that makes me smile. The emotion in the performance is just so uplifting. You can feel that they are wanting to accomplish their dream in life and that they want the listener to come along for the ride.
By the end of the song you’re just feeling like you could conquer the world. And that’s kind of weird because not everyone is a country singer in UK wanting to make their way in the world. But their story becomes the story of the listener. I think a great melody and a great performance will do that.
So I’m not sure what is happening with this duo right now, but sometimes these songs can catch fire. They can get some attention on channels like Spotify and before you know it the duo has some backing in the US with a label and they’re getting played on country radio.
Will that happen?
I hope so because this is a really cool song and it seems like a really unique and talented duo. Let’s bring a little UK country to the States!
