How do you do a country cheating song in 2017?
That’s a tough proposition. There have been so many. Can there really be new ways to sing about cheating that seem fresh and interesting?
I think we found one.
This is a newcomer to us at CML. It’s Jessica McVey and she has a good new song. Check it out.
John Deere In The Headlights – Jessica McVey
The first thing I thought of as I listened to this one was Jason Aldean’s, Big Green Tractor. Kind of another side of that song.
Obviously that’s probably not the case, but that’s where my head went.
Anyway…we have a woman that’s got a few suspicions about her man. He’s been going missing at night. She hasn’t been hearing from him lately and so she goes out looking for him. And she finds that he’s out taking some other woman for a ride on his John Deere tractor.
Then things go a little off the rails for the narrator. She loses it and he high tails it outta there while she’s chasing them both in her car.
I don’t know if there is a video for this yet, but it’s one that I would love to see. So many great visuals. This would be one that you would have to do literally in the video.
Anyway, Jessica has a good voice. I’m not sure what her story is with the label and promotion situation, but I’ll be watching to see how this one does.
What do you think?
