Steve Holy is coming off a top 20 hit.
Now he’s looking for that elusive follow-up hit. In his career, Steve has struggled to follow big hits with more big hits. He’s chosen the next single from his latest album and I think it’s got a chance to do well. Check out Until The Rain Stops…
Until The Rain Stops – Steve Holy
Until The Rain Stops is a romantic, sexy song. It’s about two people staying in the house for the day as the rain pours down outside. You might think about Keith Urban’s Raining On Sunday, but Steve’s take on the rainy day is more fun, more playful.
Steve has the perfect voice for songs like this. I could see a string of hits like Until The Rain Stops. Chris Young and Jason Aldean have had singles like this recently with You and Big Green Tractor. Until The Rain Stops has that fun melody. It’s a song that’s more about having fun with your lover than being all serious and extremely passionate. Passion can be fun too.
I think this song is a winner. I’m hoping it climbs its way up into the top 20 for Steve. It should be a single that connects with the country fans. People like to have a little fun now and then. There is nothing better than just staying in bed for an entire weekend morning. Sure, there’s stuff that needs to get done, but that rain is the excuse to stay inside and just be with the one you love.
This could be a first for Steve. He’s had two number one hit singles in the past. The latest was 2006’s Brand New Girlfriend. Steve was only able to follow that single up with a couple songs that just cracked the top 40 on the charts.
Previously, Steve had a number one hit in 2001 with Good Morning Beautiful. Steve followed that song with with a couple sons that cracked the top 30 on the charts, but nothing was every a major hit for a few years.
So with Until The Rain Stops Steve is going for back to back top 20 hits for the first time in his career. I think it’s very possible and I actually think this track is better than Love Don’t Run, the title track from his latest album.
Steve is a great country singer. He’s got the romantic side to him that makes him unique. I think he could play to that side of things and connect with a major country audience with Until The Rain Stops.
It’s been an interesting career for Steve Holy. He’s been in the public eye for more than ten years, but it still seems like he’s had to fight his way back every few years. Now I think he’s ready for some sustained success. Until The Rain Stops could be the song that really started it all (for the third time).
This could be another big break out for Steve Holy.
