This one’s a little different from Kevin Fowler.
Kevin Fowler has been big down in Texas for years. He’s had a few hints at mainstream country hits over the years, but never that one song that takes him to the nationwide level. Now he’s releasing That Girl and I have to say that it might have a chance at some radio success. Check out That Girl by Kevin Fowler…
That Girl by Kevin Fowler
That Girl is a song about time spent with a girl during a period that was special to the narrator in the song. He’s looking back on the memories he’s had with the girl over the years. They were singing along to some classic rock songs. They were rolling down the road with the coverable top down on the car. They were in love and nothing could make anything in life seem bad.
I say this song is a little different from Kevin Fowler because up to this point he’s come across as the partying country rocker that is all about having a good time. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s actually a great little niche to have in country music. That perception is probably more based on the fact that I’ve just heard a few of Kevin’s songs, but that is the impression I get.
With That Girl I think Kevin is starting to focus a little more on what the mainstream listening audience wants to hear. Songs about love have always done well on radio especially when the song has an upbeat melody and simple lyrics that are easy to repeat and sing along to. That’s just what Kevin has with That Girl and I really think this could become his biggest charting single up to this point.
Sometimes it just takes one special song to really allow an artist to break out. There have been many country artists over the years with regional followings that can’t quite break out to the mainstream. It really comes down to finding the right song that people want to hear over and over. I think about songs like Chicken Fried by the Zac Brown Band. That song was so catchy. It was fresh sounding and people kept calling in to their local disc jockeys and requesting it. The radio folks couldn’t help but to send that song all the way up the charts to #1.
I don’t know if Kevin Fowler will see that kind of success with That Girl, but he sure does have a catchy tune on his hands. I think it could crack the top 30 or maybe even the top 20. And that’s a big accomplishment for any artist especially when it would be the first time reaching that high on the chart.
That Girl is already in the top 60 on the charts. It’s only Kevin’s fourth single to accomplish that feat. Next up will be seeing how fast this thing can climb the rest of the way until it peaks. I’m sure all of Kevin’s long time fans are doing all they can to make That Girl a huge hit.
Chart Estimate: #25
CML Points: 80/100
