After yesterday’s review of a new Swedish country rock band that reminded me of Little Texas a bit I thought I would check and see what that group of country rockers was up to.
It turns out that Little Texas put out a new album last year and they have a single out this year. That’s pretty cool. Three of the original guys are still with the band and they still sound pretty good. Let’s check out this latest single.
This Hot In Texas – Little Texas
Little Texas always had a rock edge in their music. They launched their first album in 1992 and it had a handful of hits on it. People started loving how they were mixing the rock sounds from the ’80s into country music. And they did have some really good songs that helped to define country music in the ’90s. I still hear some of the big hits on radio.
This song seems to be kind of an evolution from those early days. This one has a more bluesy rock feel. It’s kind of a little more edgy. Some of that probably comes from new lead singer and longtime lead guitarist Porter Howell.
This song is kind of cool. The band shows that they still know how to record a catchy song and this one seems to step out of their comfort zone a little bit. It’s a little harder and a little more for the rock crowd, but these guys will always have a home in country music.
