It’s really been awhile since I really watched an episode of American Idol let alone a full season. I think the last time I watched was when Carrie Underwood was auditioning. And at this point maybe I didn’t really watch it live and only watched it on YouTube. Who knows.
But then I finally see these new artists coming around from the show and they’re really good. Here is the winner from this last season. He’s on the Big Machine roster and his first official single sounds like a hit.
There’s A Girl – Trent Harmon
It’s really hard for a new artist to breakout in country music. It just doesn’t happen all that often. There are only so many spots on the chart.
Trent has help from the show and he also has tremendous help from his record label. Then it comes down to the song and how much people will like it. I think this song could be the key. It sounds like it will fit in really well with today’s country music.
When I listen to this one I hear an act like Brett Eldredge, Hunter Hayes or Lady Antebellum singing it and having just a huge hit. And I think that could happen for Trent, but we’ll have to see.
The hook of the song as far as the lyrics go is that there is always a girl out there that will drive a guy crazy. We all have someone that will make us spend too much money and dance when we really don’t know what we’re doing.
It’s a fun party of life.
