Here is something fresh and unique. And I’m not only talking about the band name. We have a new duo that I haven’t heard before, but that doesn’t mean anything. The act is JOHNNYSWIM and they have something really snappy and engaging. It’s something pretty cool and I’m glad it’s happening in country music. Give it a listen and see what you think.

I don’t know what it is about the harmonica, but whenever a new country song has harmonica featured I’m always loving it and I probably give it a few extra points, but that’s alright.
This act is pretty cool. They really seem like they’re having a lot of fun in the video and their voices sound great. I’m thinking it’s a duo. I thought at first maybe it was a male solo artist, but the two work really well together and the song is a winner.
The track seems to be about a person that has been struggling in the past. They’ve been fighting with situations that haven’t been that good or productive, but now they’re ready to move on and focus on the positive things in life.
That’s my takeaway from the song, anyway. You’ll have to let me know what you feel when you listen. It definitely sounds upbeat and positive and I like it. There is real emotion here.
And let me know if you’ve heard of the duo before.
