Hali Hicks will grab her guitar and perform a song anytime, anywhere.
She’s got ripped jeans, bare feet, and a country voice that’s entirely unique. I’ve been hearing the new song from Hali Hicks – [easyazon-link asin=”B005EVTP24″]Last Night of Spring[/easyazon-link] – for a bit now and I finally had to share it with you.
Last Night of Spring – Hali Hicks
Most days I’ll have on some new country music as I’m working or doing some things. For the majority of the time I’ll get lost in the songs and it’ll take me a few times to notice a new song or new artist.
Well for the last two weeks or so there has been a song on the radio – [easyazon-link asin=”B005EVTP24″]Last Night of Spring[/easyazon-link] by new artist Hali Hicks. The other day I was listening and this song came on the radio. It made me stop and realize what a great track it is. The song is about young love. The narrator in the story is falling fast for a new boy and it just happens to be the last night of Spring.
The entire summer is ahead for them. Their minds are probably racing, thinking about all the things they’ll do during the summer. Even with thoughts of summer on the way this is the kind of moment where you get lost and just think about you and the other person.
What I like most about the song is the visual nature of the lyrics. It seems to be tricky to find songs with great visuals that allow listeners to get lost in the song. With [easyazon-link asin=”B005EVTP24″]Last Night of Spring[/easyazon-link] the listener can really close their eyes and feel the cool summer weather drifting away as the summer heat rolls in. They can feel themselves there with the young couple as they fall in love.
That’s what makes for a great song.
Meet Hali Hicks
This song was my first introduction to Hali Hicks. She’s been a young artist trying to make it in Nashville for a few years now. The backstory is common, but interesting – she left home with a few dollars and a tank of gas. She took a part-time job to pay her way while she took every chance to sing and play.
Now she’s got the record label, the marketing backing, and a great single.
To really break out in the country world it seems like a new artist has to have a great song. I think that’s what Hali Hicks has found with [easyazon-link asin=”B005EVTP24″]Last Night of Spring[/easyazon-link]. The song is something people can relate to. It’s a song that has a great melody. It’s not a fast, snappy song. It moves along at a good pace and kind of lulls you into the moment. It reminds me of [easyazon-link asin=”B000SZE0CG”]Strawberry Wine[/easyazon-link]. I don’t think it’s quite on that level, but this song is good.
Hali Hicks is out on the road now hitting the radio stations to encourage them to play this track. I think stations should give it a chance. There are a lot of female listeners out there that have probably had this experience.
And I’m sure a few of the guys in the audience would reminisce a little bit as well.
[easyazon-link asin=”B005EVTP24″]Last Night of Spring[/easyazon-link] is the kind of song that can get a new artist just enough attention for them to break out with the second track. The song is good and Hali Hicks has the kind of unique voice country fans really seem to like.
Chart Estimate: #35
CML Points: 80/100
