Here is a fun new song from Jacob Davis. He’s a new artist for us here on CML. I think he’s also pretty new in the country world, but you know how those things go.
“New” artists could have been spending the better parts of their lives in Nashville working for their breakout moment. I don’t know the back story with Jacob, but we’re going to check out this new single and see what we got.
What I Wanna Be – Jacob Davis
The first time I heard this was on Wild Country on Spotify. It kind of starts out like a normal love song, but then things really change and get rolling and jiving. It’s just a song that’s almost like a dance song or something like that.
The trend in country right now is for more love songs. A little on the sappy songs especially with the lyrics. It’s a little swing on the pendulum from the Bro Country thing.
And this song from Jacob fits right in with that style. Straight ahead love song. Kind of sappy. But it works and it especially works because it’s a funky and different style. Maybe a little Thomas Rhett and Sam Hunt.
I’m rooting for this one. Jacob is on Black River. They’ve had a breakout with Kelsea Ballerini recently. I’m curious to see if they can break more artists.
What do you think of this one?
