There seems to be a yearning in country music for a swing back to traditional. This has been the case in country music for decades. Things swing from one direction to the other. We’ve been in a pretty good pop phase for awhile and after some time things always swing back.
This new artist is one I didn’t remember, but we did review one of her songs a few years ago. I was excited to check this new one out and it turned out to be really good.
Drinking With Dolly – Stephanie Quayle
The song is about wondering if you were born a few decades too late. You look back on things and wonder why your influences and interests are all old-fashioned or something like that. It’s not that the present is all that bad, but your style seems to fit back in a different time.
So the story and lyrics in the song are throwback and it makes sense that the music and sound would as well. I think it’s a really cool blend of vocals and music. This type of music seems to really fit well with Stephanie’s voice. It sounds like it could have been released really in any decade, but it still sounds fresh as a lot of the music does today.
I think country fans are really going to like this one. It’s kind of a breath of fresh air. I’m a fan of all different kinds of country music, but my favorites always seem to sound like this one.
