Big & Rich are out on their own now as far as record labels go. That’s not an easy thing to do. The record labels have connections and relationships with the people that control what gets played on the radio. But Big & Rich have a hit the last time out and they’re looking to do it once again. Check this one out.
Run Away With You – Big & Rich
This one is pretty radio-friendly. You have the electric guitar licks that are popular on the radio right now. And it has the classic young and in love lyrics that people have always enjoyed. The melody is catchy and you can easily sing along with it by the end of the first chorus.
And you also have the familiar Big & Rich harmonies, which have always kind of set them apart. And Big & Rich have cut songs like this before especially recently. The lyrics are familiar. They won’t make you sit back and say, “whoa…”, but they will make you feel like you’re enjoying the song.
I think this has a chance to be a pretty good hit here in the next year. I heard it a few times this past week on Sirius and people seemed to be liking it. I can see it kind of growing on the radio DJs and the radio audiences.
What are your thoughts on this one?
It’s not in-your-face like Save A Horse, but it’s enjoyable.
