Zandi Holup is a new artist on the country scene. She just put out her first EP. There are six songs all with something a little different for country fans. The theme throughout is a little rock with a little traditional country. That’s been a good mix for many artists. Let’s see if it works for Zandi.
Of all the songs on the EP I think I like the title track the best. Here it is.
Lone Star – Zandi Holup
This one stood out to me right away. It’s definitely a slower country song, but I like those. We have so many upbeat and faster country songs today that it’s good to hear something that kind of brings things back to the other side.
It seems like the song is about someone that is trying to find their place in the world. They’re looking for how they can achieve their dream. They seem to know what they want to do, but are struggling with getting started. Or they’ve been at it for a while without really seeming to make any gains.
It would seem obvious that this is the life of a young artist trying to make it in the music world. It’s something that most people would give up on because it’s just too difficult. But if you’re a Lone Star like in the song then you’ll keep going until it works. It’s the only option.
This song is pretty cool. I like it. I like the lyrics. I like the music and sound. It’s pretty traditional especially for country music today.
What do you think of this one?
