Big Smo is back on A&E with season 2 of his show.
I started watching the show last year and became a fan. There was something about a guy working hard to make a mark in country music. He’s doing it differently and it’s been a struggle professionally and personally. And it’s all documented on TV.
Things seem to be taking a positive turn and I heard this one on SiriusXM the other day.
Rebel Road – Big Smo
This one seems to be a shoutout to the truckers out there on the road. Trucking is still one of the biggest industries in the US. And it seems to be growing every day, but it doesn’t seem that as many people are getting into the industries.
It’s a tough life to be out there all the time putting in those hours. This song is a little love for those out there working hard and living the rebel life out on the road.
Obviously you get some classic Big Smo on this record. It’s a mix of hip hop and country. It seems that country fans have been getting more comfortable with this kind of country music. And I think that’s good. It won’t be for everyone, but that’s okay.
One of the great things about country is that there are always different types and it’s usually never all the same.
I like this song. I think it’s catchy and has a good message. I hope it does well, but we’ll have to see.
