Country music is in an interesting place. I don’t know if there has ever been a time like this before in the history of the genre. Female artists don’t really have a place on radio right now and I’m not sure why. There are plenty of amazing artists including new artists like Danielle Bradbery. I don’t know what’s going on, but you just don’t see women on the charts right now.
So every time I hear a new song from a female artist I’m always rooting extra for them to breakthrough on the charts. This time we have a new song from new artist Kelsea Ballerini. I would say that this one is in the same type of music that Taylor Swift is making and maybe a little like the new act Dan + Shay. Check it out and see what you think.
Love Me Like You Mean It – Kelsea Ballerini
The song is definitely catchy. It’s about a girl that seems to have had issues in the past when it comes to finding a guy that is genuinely interested in something more than just a short-term fling. That’s what she’s looking for and she seems ready to try again, but is hopeful that the boy will love her like he actually means it this time.
It’s a good song that speaks to the young female audience. I know it’s something people can relate to.
Hopefully the song does well on the charts. We need more great female voices on country radio right now.
