Jamie O’Neal is a star in country music. She’s had hits on the top of the charts and she’s still been busy the last few years. She has a brand new album out that includes classics, but also a brand new song.
And that song is the first single and comes with the perfect video. Watch this one and see if you can relate.
Wide Awake – Jamie O’Neal
This is a really fun song. It kind of tricks you when you hear it for the first time. You see the title and think maybe it’s a song about love or some kind of struggle in life. Then the song starts and you think that it’s definitely a love song.
But then the hook comes in and you realize it’s a tongue-in-cheek song about the way men snore and keep their spouses wide awake all through the night with loud rumblings that sound like NASCAR races.
Can you relate?
I don’t think I snore. My fiancee hasn’t complained so I don’t think it’s the case. But I know there are people out there suffering from their spouses loud snoring. This song puts a fun little spin on it. You’ll smile and at least get a little laughter out of the situation.
The first thing that came to my mind when I heard the hook in the song was Did I Shave My Legs For This? by Deana Carter. That was a great song and so is this one.
I hadn’t realized that it’s been nine years since Jamie O’Neal has put out an album. That’s a long time and it’s wonderful that she’s back in the game with new music.
What are your thoughts on the new music from Jamie O’Neal?
