Are you ready for some bad ass chick music?
Kristen Kelly is a country newcomer and she has a great new song. If you’re out feeling revenge for something someone did to you then this song is for you. Listen to Ex-Old Man.
Ex-Old Man – Kristen Kelly
I think Ex-Old Man is a great song. It’s not about something happy. It’s about a poor girl that’s had her husband cheat on her with her best friend.
Who are the people that do this kind of thing?
It ain’t right.
When you look at Kristen she seems like she is this fiesty little country girl. She has the look of someone that can kick your ass in a fight. She might be small, but I wouldn’t want to mess with her. I like that attitude in a country singer.
There are certainly plenty of songs about lying and cheating in country music, but there is always room for more. The trick is to come up with something catchy that covers the topic, but in a new way. I think Ex-Old Man accomplishes that task. Kristen’s voice is differen. There is an edge to her. It’s kind of like Miranda Lambert with possibly even more edge although I’m not sure if that’s possible.
Mostly what I like about this track is the catchy melody. It’s not anything like a soaring ballad although I think Kristen can pull those songs off. This track is about conveying the emotion of realizing your husband is cheating on you with your (now former) best friend. That is accomplished with the emotion in the song. I’m not sure if this has actually happened to Kristen, but she makes it seem like she has experience with the situation.
There aren’t too many songs that start out with the chorus. I think that’s a nice change of pace as well. It’s not new, but it’s kind of cool.
I like this song.
How ’bout you?
