There is something new going on in country music right now. I’ve been noticing it in the songs that I’ve been looking at over the last few months.
But it’s been especially heating up recently. A lot of new artists are coming out with this soft rock, adult contemporary vibe and it’s kind of cool.
It’s a little John Mayer and some things like that. It’s got a good vibe.
Here is new artist Devin Dawson that I think fits right in that vein. He’s got a cool style and I think people are going to like it.
All On Me – Devin Dawson
I caught this one on Wild Country on Spotify the other week and it had me grooving back and forth while writing. It just has a really laid back vibe, but is just incredibly catchy and cool.
The song is a love song. It’s about a guy that’s going to be there for his girl. Whatever she needs. Whatever stuff she has going on that is taking its toll he will be there to take it all on with her and help her get through. He’s just going to be there when she needs him.
Devin appears to be aligned with Warner Nashville. I don’t know if this is an official first single. The labels seem to be using channels like Spotify and SiriusXM to kind of test out new artists and it seems like a good strategy.
Let me know your thoughts on this one. It’s a little different, but good music always wins out in the country world.
