We have the new one from Blackberry Smoke today. This one has been out for a little while so maybe you’ve heard it. The song is definitely something different than what you’ll hear on country radio. If you like a little edge and Southern Rock in your country then you’re going to like this one.
Too High – Blackberry Smoke
What always stands out to me about these guys and there music is that Southern Rock influence. But I wouldn’t say they sound exactly like any of that music that came out in the ’70s and ’80s. It’s influenced by that, but this style is updated, fresh and new. It’s Blackberry Smoke music.
The lyrics seems to be pretty heavy. The video is definitely pretty heavy. It seems like the lyrics at the base level are about a guy that is really trying to figure out his place in life. He kind of knows where he wants to go, but right now he isn’t able to get there.
There are just too many things going on right now and too many barriers in his way. We’ve all felt this way at some time or another. You have dreams and you want to make them happen, but we get worn down just trying to get through the day.
The hope is that we don’t get tempted into shortcuts or things that will get us in trouble. That’s not the way to make it work for the long-term.
Great song here from Blackberry Smoke. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
