Sammy Kershaw has been one of my favorites for a long time.
He just always seemed like a guy that really cared about music. He seems to enjoy getting on stage and playing some good classic sounding country music that makes people feel emotions; usually the kind that make you smile even after a hard day.
Sammy is still out there releasing new music. He has a collection of that includes re-recordings of 10 of his classic hits along with two brand new songs.
Here is one of those new songs.
The Middle – Sammy Kershaw
Sammy is still sounding good. You can hear the age in his voice, but I think it’s a good thing.
What stands out most to me is that this song is really catchy. It’s the kind of song that would be a top five hit for guys like Easton Corbin, Blake Shelton and Billy Currington.
Hopefully Sammy’s version gets a little attention because he does a great job. Every once in a while a country legend like Sammy will get a hit out of nowhere. This could be that kind of song. We’ll have to wait and see what kind of interest it garners from radio.
Until then we’ll just have to enjoy it on our own and that’s just fine too.
