Today we’re getting a new song from Lindsay Ell.
Lindsay has been looking for that first big country hit. This is her fourth single. A couple have made the top 50 in the US and her first single back in 2013 made the top 15 in Canada.
Let’s see what this next one sounds like.
By The Way – Lindsay Ell
Really catchy song. And a fun song.
It seems like the situation is that a girl was dumped by a guy. He’s probably thinking that he was the winner in the situation especially since it seems like maybe this has happened before. They broke up and got back together and wound up in the same situation.
But that’s all over now. The boy can’t come back crying for one last chance again. Once he finds out that he can’t do better he’ll be the one feeling sorry.
This time the girl is feeling good and looking at enjoying life right now and in the future.
I like the production on this one too. It’s a really good blend of a fresh pop sound while still sounding like a country song. Sure, it’s upbeat and melodic, but there is nothing wrong with a catchy country song.
I think this could have a chance to break Lindsay to the mainstream country audience in the US. She has a great country voice and this one sounds different and distinct. I think it would sound good in different settings including in the house, in the car or wherever.
What do you think? Will it make the top 30 in the US?
Chart Estimate: #30
