It’s always good to hear new music from Little Big Town.
I think they’re one of the most talented and unique acts in country. Their new song – Shut Up Train – is another great song. I’m not sure if it’ll become a big hit, but that’s how this band rolls. They make cool country music and if people love it’s gravy.
Check out the new song…
Shut Up Train by Little Big Town
Metaphors always do well in song.
For Shut Up Train the guys and gals in Little Big Town highlight the sound of a train. It’s making lots of noise nearby and the narrator can hear it. This train is driving her nuts. It’s keeping her up all night and now she’s having to deal with thoughts of her heartache again.
We all have those periods in life where we’re feeling down. It can be after a break up, which seems to be the case in this song. It can be after losing a job or losing out on a promotion. The pain could come from moving away from family and being alone in a new place. The pain could even come with the loss of a loved one.
There are lots of reasons to be sad and lonely. We don’t welcome it and we’re always looking for a way out. And just when we think we can get any lonelier something usually comes along and takes things down even further. In the case of this song we have a train rolling through nearby. It’s loud, annoying, and there’s no way to not get mad at the train. It’s making things much worse than they need to be.
This is a great song. Country music has its dark side and heartache is one of those aspects of the darkness. People break up. People lose people. It’s part of life and it happens to everybody. That’s why country is so special to so many people. Songs like Shut Up Train bring us all together when we’re feeling alone. Songs like this let us know there are others out there going through the same things.
I’m hoping this song makes a run on the charts. It’s been a mixed bag for LBT, but hopefully this great video and song will get some heavy requesting on the phone lines.
Little Big Town’s Future
I’d call the future for Little Big Town uncertain. The band came back big in 2010 with the hit Little White Church. Singles after have been hit or miss. Now they’re probably looking at a new album in 2012, which is awesome, but it’s another break or make moment for the band. They’ve made it happen before when their backs were against the wall, though.
These guys are way too talented to not continue making great music and playing it live throughout the world. I’ve seen them twice and each time they put on a special performance. They’re one of my favorites and it’s always good to hear new music from the group.
Chart Estimate: #30
CML Points: 84/100
