After reaching the country charts last year, the Josh Abbott Band is looking for more in 2012.
The new song is Touch and the guys are looking to touch as many country fans as they can with this great song. The melodies are catchy and the lyrics are romantic.
Touch – Josh Abbott Band
Touch is a romantic song. I’m not sure who sings the background female vocals on this track, but it really adds some great depth to the track. It’s an interesting song and one that should do well on the charts.
The Josh Abbott Band is on an independent label, which makes things difficult to get noticed on the charts. The band was able to do this back in 2011 as Oh, Tonight reached the top 50 on the singles charts. I believe things will get better with Touch. The song is catchy and has all the interest and appeal country fans seem to look for in their hits.
Touch is already on the charts and my guess is that it will make it to the top 30. The song is something you won’t always hear on the country charts these days. It has a different sound from what other artists are releasing and I think that’s something you need to stand out.
The opening of the track is special. The fiddle playing the solo is really cool. It kind of sets the romantic tone for the entire song. Josh’s vocals are low and raspy with a passion and emotion that make you feel the song. It’s a great combination of music and lyrics.
I love this song.
