Curtis Braly is new to us here at CML. I don’t think I’ve heard the name before. So this is the first song I’ve heard him sing and it’s off a new album that he just put out. But from the looks of things he’s been around for a long time working on getting his music to country fans.
We’re going to look at the title track from the new record. It’s a love song. The theme reminds me a little of She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful, which is one of the greatest country songs ever.
So let’s check this one out.
You Matter – Curtis Braly
So the hook here is that the woman in the song is wonderful. The narrator, seemingly the guy she’s with, sees it. Others can see it including her family and friends.
But she struggles to see all the good things about herself. She looks other places and compares herself to others. Maybe she’s on Facebook and it seems like everyone else has the perfect life and she’s feeling down about herself and her life.
So this song is about letting the woman know just how wonderful she is. And it’s not just that she’s wonderful, but she’s really special and important to those in her life especially those that she’s closest with. She really matters and it’s great that she’s willing to share herself with others.
This is a really good song. It’s got a good melody and it’s something you can sing along with. And the message is really a good one as well.
What do you think?
