It’s been a while since we’ve spent some time out on CMT Edge.
I like to check in from time to time on this great blog. CMT takes the time to find the artists on the edge of country music. They may not fall directly in line with what the mainstream country world is doing, but they’re still making good music.
Here is the latest from Charlie Faye.
It’s A Fighter – Charlie Faye
I love these country singers that blend a variety of genres into country music. Charlie sounds like she has some lounge and soul music in her. I really like that combination. I can’t place my finger on it exactly and I think that’s a good thing.
These artists that are shared on CMT Edge always have something unique. Their songs aren’t your typical mainstream songs, but they’re still really good and even in some cases really catchy. I could see people sitting in bars and lounges really paying attention to Charlie as she sings this one.
The song seems to be about the struggle some of us have when it comes to loving someone. Part of us feels an incredible pull to the person while another part of us is giving off the impression that we should stay away.
That’s a struggle and like anything in life we have to make a choice.
Do you go with the feeling that this could be something good and enjoyable while risking getting hurt?
Or do you take the safe way out and avoid that potential hurt while also avoiding the potential good experiences?
