Here is a new artist for CML. This is the first introduction I’ve had to Taylor Acorn. The introduction has been a good one. She has a catchy new single that is getting some positive attention it seems in Nashville.
Let’s check this one out and see what we think. There is some potential here, but as always we’ll have to wait and see if this can be a breakthrough for a new artist.
Without You – Taylor Acorn
The story in the song seems to be about a woman that’s kind of being jerked around by a guy. He wants to have things all leaning his way. It sounds like he’s wanting to keep multiple women in his life. He spends time with one, but wants to be with another as well. He wants it all, but obviously that’s no way to treat anyone.
So the narrator in the song is finally seeing through all the lies. She’s seeing the truth even though she still has feelings for him. She wasn’t sure before if she could move on, but now she knows that she’ll be fine without him.
This is a good song. It fits in with the current sound on country radio while also having some differences that make it stand out just enough. Taylor has a good voice. She seems to have a good way with the song and making a few moments stand out and pull listeners in.
I like this one. I think it has a chance.
What do you think?
