Maiden Dixie is new to us here at CML. It looks like they’re based in Minneapolis. I’m not too far away here in Eau Claire, WI. Maybe I’ll have to go check them out or maybe they’ll make their way over here sometime. We’ll have to see.
They just released a new EP and there are some good songs on it. This one seems to be the one getting the most streams on Spotify so we’ll check it out.
The Whiskey’ll Miss Me – Maiden Dixie
This song is pretty cool. I really like the sound of this band. The lead singer has a really smokey voice that sounds like it was really soaked in a little whiskey and honed in the taverns. It’s pretty cool. They definitely sound like a rock country band and that’s a big thing right now.
One note I’ll share is that while I was listening to this song it reminded me of a singer that sounded kind of the same. I couldn’t thin of it and then it dawned on me. It’s the band Vixen from the late ’80s or early ’90s. Maybe that’s just me. Just the sound. Not the look…obviously. Hair metal was crazy back in those days.
The song definitely has some country lyrics. It seems to be about life a little relationship with drinking and how that can evolve over the years. I think that’s all it’s about, but maybe there’s some deeper meaning. It’s catchy and cool. It’s different and I like it.
