Here is another one that popped up on New Boots. I don’t know what I did before Spotify. I know they’re still figuring out the economics of it all, but for fans there really is nothing better. Access to so much music.
Anyway, it also allows fans like me to discover great new music like this new single from John King. I looked back and we did do a song of his from a few years ago. I don’t always remember those.
Anyway, this one has been out for a few months, but it looks like it’s picking up some steam.
I Still Pick Up – John King
This one has a good melody. Nothing over the top or anything like that. It’s just good. A little different than your normal country song, but there has been a trend going in this direction. A little more pop. But definitely still a country lyric.
You get that Thomas Rhett and Brett Young vibe with this one. And that’s a good thing. That’s kind of one of the new directions on country radio. The nice guy sound. It’s good.
I think what’s going on in the lyric is that these two people are feeling each other. I can’t quite pick out if they’re new in love or if they’ve been together for a little while. But even though it’s getting late one of them is calling and the other one is definitely not missing that call.
Let me know your thoughts on this one.
