Caitlyn Smith is a new name to me, but it seems like she’s making a name for herself in Nashville. I’m sure she’s been building her fanbase for years. That’s almost always the case with rising artists. And after listening to some of the songs on her latest EP I can see why fans would love her music. It has a throwback kind of song while also sounding fresh.
Check out this latest song.
Tacoma – Caitlyn Smith
You won’t hear music like this on country radio…right now at least. The things at radio always go back and forth and it could be swinging back to music like this. Maren Morris is kind of breaking new ground at country radio and I think someone like Caitlyn Smith could follow right along.
Tacoma is a ballad with lots of emotion. I think it’s about a woman that’s leaving a city and a guy behind. Things didn’t work out for whatever the reason or reason and it’s time for her to put the city and everything else behind her as she moves on.
Whatever the situation, putting a life behind you like that takes courage especially if you’re not entirely sure where you’re going to go next. It’s something I’m sure a lot of people think about doing, but maybe don’t always have the strength to do.
This is a really good song with a great performance. I think people are going to like this one, but you never can tell for sure. I’d love to get your thoughts on this one. I like it.
