This is a new one that first popped on the radar for me on The Highway on SiriusXM. My wife and I don’t drive too much, but we spent quite a few hours in the car last weekend and this one came on the radio a few times.
For the last few years we’ve included just about all of Maggie’s singles. She’s been kind of fighting on the fringes of country music looking for her breakthrough.
This last release is an independent release I think. She’s had songs on the radio charts, but never a big breakthrough. I still can’t figure out why she’s not on a major label. Maybe this song will help make that happen.
Same Sky – Maggie Rose
This song, from what I can gather, is about a woman that’s been through a breakup. It seems like there is frustration with a guy that never seemed to really get it. It sounds like he was selfish and that he never really appreciated the relationship he had with her.
And even now that it’s over it seems like he’s not getting it. She’s trying to make it as clear as possible for him by letting him know that the only thing they share right now is that they’re underneath the same sky.
This is a really good song. It’s unique. Maggie has always had a unique and strong voice. I really don’t know why she hasn’t had a breakout hit yet. I hope that this is that hit.
