This one popped up on New Boots on Spotify this week.
I know I say it all the time, but I think it’s really cool that independent artists can get exposure on those playlists. I’ve read a little about those are put together, but I’m still curious…
Anyway, this is a new artist at least to me. He has a new EP that just came out this year. The leadoff track is the one that’s getting the early buzz.
Ball Caps & Blue Jeans – Luke Pell
This one definitely has a good sound. It sounds like something you hear on country radio these days. Put this in the hands of Luke Bryan or Brantley Gilbert and this one would be a surefire top five hit no problem.
That means that there’s a chance it could do well for Luke Pell. It’s always incredibly difficult to breakthrough as a new artists. You need a good song and some luck. We’ll see if this one is able to be that breakout hit.
The song itself is a love song…I think. There seems to be some nostalgia going on in the lyrics. I think it’s about a current couple that’s kind of looking back on their history together. Kind of looking back on those early days.
Maybe they didn’t have a lot of money. Maybe they had all the usual bills. Just trying to find their way in the early stages of life. But they had each other and that was more than enough. It made those times really good.
