I’m a little behind on this song. It looks like it was released in 2014 and was on the charts in Canada earlier in 2015. And it looks like Steven Lee Olsen has now moved on to another single.
But I’ve been hearing this one on the Wild Country playlist on Spotify so I wanted to include it.
Raised By A Good Time – Steven Lee Olsen
The thing that stands out in this one is the rock nature to the sound. It’s kind of like the sound that Jason Aldean and others have brought to country the last few years. It’s something that country fans have been listening to and enjoying for a few years so it’s no surprise this one has already been a hit in Canada.
The lyrics about the life young kids live in small towns. They’re out having fun trying to find the line between living a fun, good life while not getting into too much trouble and not hurting others.
So it’s certainly something a lot of kids can relate to that are going through that right now. And it’s also something adults can relate to if they went through a time like that in their lives.
So it’s a pretty good song. It looks like it reached #3 on the Canadian Country charts. And it even cracked the top 60 in the US, which is interesting.
Maybe we’ll hear more from Steven Lee in the future. We’ll have to see.
What do you think of this song? Do you like it?
