My wife asked me if I had heard this song the other day. I think she heard it on The Highway on SiriusXM. I had to tell her that I hadn’t hear the song yet, but that I would be sure to check it out. My wife has good taste in music so when she says she likes a new song I listen.
I believe this is the first time we’ve featured Caroline Jones on CML and it’s a really good debut. The song sounds like it has some real life experiences going on. So let’s check it out and see what’s going on.
Tough Guys – Caroline Jones
Talk about a real life situation for many. In this case I can imagine Caroline going around Nashville looking to make her way into the country world. She’s hearing from all these guys about what she needs to do to succeed. She knows that she doesn’t fit in the normal box and she’s getting brushed aside for being an outsider.
Well, that’s just tough. She’s going to be who she is and when she succeeds that will just be tough for all those guys that didn’t see that she could be something in Nashville. Maybe it’s true that she is too tough for all the guys out there and they are threatened and know they can’t handle it.
This is a good song. I like the melodies. It’s catchy and something you can sing along with. It’s definitely an anthem-type song.
I don’t know if there is major support behind this one, but it definitely has a chance at success.
