Summerlyn Powers is a brand new country artists. She’s young, but she has a great new song on the charts.
Alabama Kinda Girl – Summerlyn Powers
With young artists I’m always looking for the subject matter in the song. There have been times when young artists have had songs that seem to cover topics for older people. Those songs have occasionally worked, but it seems more often than not it just confuses people.
What I really like about this song is Summerlyn sticks with who she really is and that’s an Alabama girl.
The song covers all the things people do in Alabama. I come from the Midwest and many of the images and themes in the song work well up here too. It’s mostly about the small town life and all the things that make it the best way to grow up and the best way to live.
The most important aspect of the song, though, is the great melody. I think you forget that you’re listening to a young artist because you get caught up in the melody.
I’m the opposite of a young Alabama girl, but the melody is still catchy to me. I can easily see how people would sing along with this song and those from Alabama probably will have a special place for it in their new collection.
It’s a great song from a promising new artist.
And anytime you bring Pam Tillis in for the video you’re doing great. Pam is one of my all time favorites.
What do you think of the new song?
