Kristian Bush seems like a really great guy. And we already know he’s a talented singer and songwriter. He knows what it takes to make a hit. He’s been doing it for ten years with Sugarland.
But the odds have kind of been stacked against him for a solo record. Most people know about Jennifer Nettles. Her first solo record has been doing pretty well. Now it’s time for some new music from Kristian. And it’s pretty good.
Trailer Hitch – Kristian Bush
There is some really classic signs of Sugarland in this music. And I think people are going to like and recognize that. But this song also has some of Kristian’s personality and that’s a good thing too.
The hook of the song is that many of us work hard to set ourselves up for the end of our lives. But by that time we might have a little money in the bank, but we can’t take it with us when we go.
The song is just fun. The lyrics are fun. It’s a little reminder to enjoy life a little bit while you’re still here. And the music matches. It’s kind of campy and upbeat and it makes you smile and want to dance around a little bit.
I don’t know if it will be a huge hit, but maybe it’ll be a surprise on the charts. I could see that happening.
What do you think of the new song?
