Here is the new duo that’s making noise out there: Smithfield.
I was surprised with myself that I hadn’t written about their first single, Hey Whiskey. I remember the song. I remember liking it. But for some reason it was never here on CML.
Well they have a new single out and it’s another good one. Give this one a listen if you haven’t already heard it and see what you think.
I think you’ll like it…
When You’re Gone – Smithfield
Usually when I’m listening to these songs I put them on repeat and listen a few times. Sometimes while I’m responding to emails or doing something else. Other times when I’m just really listening in to the lyrics.
This was one that I had going and didn’t even realize it until it had played about a dozen times. My wife was in the same room and after about the tenth listen she asked who this was because she was digging it.
I always kind of take that as a sign that a song is a good one. My wife likes all kinds of music. I wouldn’t say she’s a huge country fan, but she likes good country song. So I would say that this one is a good country song.
It’s just got a really great melody. Sounds like a pretty straight ahead love song. When you get that feeling about the one you love. They’re in the mood. You’re in the mood. You’re both gone over the edge for each other.
Really fun and I’ll be watching for this one in 2018.
