This new song caught my attention last week on the radio. It sounded fresh and different. It was definitely country with a little something different than what you normally hear on country radio these days. Give it a listen and see what you think.
Drink You Up – Sarah Davidson
I really like the melody of this song. It reminds me of something an artist like Deana Carter or Leann Womack would have recorded back in their heydays. It’s got something soft and delicate about it, but there is plenty of substance.
You can hear in the lyrics that it’s a love song. It’s about the love this woman has for the guy in her life. She wants all of him all the time. It’s the kind of love you feel when you’re getting to know someone, but also the kind of love you feel when you’ve been with someone special for a long time.
This is the kind of song that can do well on the charts. Sarah has been looking for her breakout hit for a few years. It sounds like this could be the one.
We have to mention that Sarah has been the star of a TNT show, Nashville Wives. Earlier this spring, viewers saw that Sarah and her husband, Dallas Davidson, went through a divorce last year. It’s hard to imagine how difficult it would be for two people that both have a love of taking their music on the road to be with each other.
Hopefully things are working out well for them now. Dallas has been riding high the last few years as one of the most sought after songwriters in country and now it sounds like Sarah could have a hit on her hands.
