There is a huge void in country music for female acts right now. I don’t know what happened, but other than Taylor, Miranda and Carrie there really aren’t a lot of female acts getting played on country radio.
It’s a disgrace.
There is hope with acts like Kacey Musgraves and others. And now I would throw the girls from Sister C in the mix. Their new song is an in-your-face anthem. It sounds different and I think people are going to love it.
Ladies Of The South – Sister C
There is a like a low grumble when the music kicks in during the verses. It kind of lulls you into this world that seems dark and dingy. There is an edge there and then the chorus comes in just rocking. It kind of pushes you back in your seat as you try and hang on until the next verse comes along.
The lyrics are about the way these girls are living. They’re southern girls with an edge. They don’t follow anybody’s rules, but their own and they’re going to do what they want and what makes them feel good.
Country music needs some new sounds and these girls have found something new and different. Whenever there is a void with a certain group of listeners there is room for a new act to come in and kind of take everybody by surprise. I think this could be one of those songs and one of those acts.
What do you think?
