Here is something different from what you’ll get in today’s country music, but I think it’s perfect. It’s not anything crazy or something trying to be more than what it is.
It’s a simple love song that is incredibly catchy. It makes you smile. It makes you feel like everything is going to be just fine and it’s just a good song all around.
Give it a listen and see what you think.
Point Of View – American Young
If this one gets a real shot at country radio I think people will love it. American Young has been kicking around on the edge of country music for a few years. They’ve had some really good songs and they have a new album that just came out and it seems like people are loving it.
This song I think first heard on Wild Country on Spotify. It was one of those main country playlists. I’m not sure, which one, but immediately this one stood out. It has a little Barenaked Ladies kind of thing going on and it just seems to work.
Yes, it’s certainly got sappy lyrics, but we all need some sappy love in our life from time. When you’re in a love like that it makes you feel weird. You feel good so much of the time and you get goofy with the one that you’ve found. It’s fun and should be celebrated.
I really like this one and it grows on me more and more each time I listen.
