It’s time to get funky.
Here is the Carolina Chocolate Drops with their new single Country Girl.
Country Girl – Carolina Chocolate Drops
I think this is awesome and I’m kicking myself for not knowing about these guys. The Carolina Chocolate Drops have been releasing albums for over five years. I was just introduced to them with their first ever video for the single Country Girl.
It’s bluegrass with a few modern sounds. You can hear the modern influences in the subtleties of the strings in the background. It’s catchy and it makes you want to get up and dance a little bit.
Country Girl is the story of the good life in the South. These folks are singing and picking just like so many have before. They are living their lives and they are proud of where they come from. That’s as country as country can get and I respect it one hundred percent.
I love the story in the lyrics, but I love the music even more. This is a great melody. It’s catchy and it’s nothing like anything else on the radio right now. I would listen to this song over and over. Like I said earlier, it just makes you smile. It makes you want to get up off the chair and start dancing around. It’s not an in-your-face beat. It’s just kind of laid back and easy going. I like it.
Have you heard of the Carolina Chocolate Drops?
If you haven’t I think you’ll be hearing a lot more from them in the future. This is a great song and great video. I think they’re on to something. Change always happens at the intersection and CCD is right on the edge of something special I think. It just works.
