Life is good when Clay Walker is on the radio.
It’s been a lonely couple years. Since 2008 there has only been one single each year from Clay Walker. And 2011 doesn’t even count because this song has only received unsolicited play up to this point. A few months ago we thought we’d hear the single Jesse James from Clay, but not it looks like 2012 will kick off with Like We Never Said Goodbye. And I’m not complaining one bit.
Like We Never Said Goodbye – Clay Walker
Now this is a country song.
Clay Walker has been one of my favorite artists since he released What’s It To You (I still love that song!). Today, Clay was another potential single up for release. It’s always hard to tell for sure with Curb Records, but the rumors are that Like We Never Said Goodbye is set to be a single for 2012.
The song would be the third official single from Clay’s 2010 album She Won’t Be Lonely Long. The song is great. It’s one of the better songs from an already great record. The previous singles were huge success. The title track reached the top five and the second reached the top 30. I’m sure Like We Never Said Goodbye could reach the top five if given a chance.
The track is unbelievably catchy. The part where Clay sings:
Walked back in
And went right up to you
I could feel you were caught off guard
What a hook. The melody is incredible on this song. It’ll have people singing along all year long if this thing has the chance to reach radio. Come on, Curb!
The song is about two people that have previously went their separate ways. They now find themselves back together for one night together. They rediscover the love they used to have. All the old flames are burning again in the drinks and conversation they’re having. It’s a great night and it feels like the two never said goodbye in the first place.
Clay Walker is a country veteran. He deserves all the chance in the world to put out more singles because he’s still capable of great hits. He’s been doing it for nearly 20 years and I don’t think he needs to slow down one bit.
This could be another Clay Walker hit record.
Just give it a chance.
