Australian country singer Craig Morrison has been featured on CML before. This time he’s back with a new song and video. The track – Fences – is a really neat song. Check it out and see for yourself…
Fences – Craig Morrison
It’s pretty cool to have more Australian country singers making waves in the US. I think there should be more given a chance to find the success here that Keith Urban has found for the past decade plus. If they all have talent like Keith and Craig I think the US would be wise to offer international artists a chance to break in the States.
Back to the song…
Fences is a good song. It’s about the barriers we find in our lives. Sometimes we build those fences and other times they appear as the result of the actions of others. We all have fences in our lives and as Craig sings in the song…we can let them keep us away from our lives and the future or we can climb and overcome the barriers.
It’s a good song with a good message. The melody is good as well. You can sing along with the chorus, which is something I always look for in a song. It had to be catchy in order for people to take a liking to it. That’s something I strongly believe in.
I have to make one last comment about Craig. He reminds me so much of the ’80s rock era. He almost looks a little like Sammy Hagar. I’m not sure if Craig was a backup player in Van Halen or what, but there is obvious influence from that era in music. The music in Fences even has a little rock sound to it. There are some country artists adding a little more rock into their country. Even Carrie Underwood is doing it. I think Craig has a unique sound and it’s something cool.
What do you think of the new song?
