Drake White has been coming on lately. I’m seeing all this talk about how 2016 is a year to forget. Screw that. Lots of good things have been happening this year. I think it’s all how you look at it. There has been plenty of good including the emergence of a traditional country singer like Drake White.
His last single reached the top 20 on the radio chart. That’s a big deal for a new artist. Sometimes you just need to give the radio audience a little taste and with the next single they’re really ready to get on board.
This new song is already climbing the charts. Let’s check it out.
Makin’ Me Look Good Again – Drake White
This is a cool song. I wasn’t really sure what to think when I first heard it. You definitely won’t get many songs like this elsewhere in country music. It’s really stripped down. I think it’s mostly just piano with Drake’s vocals.
That’s a pretty cool thing. There haven’t been too many hit country songs that I can remember that have been stripped down like this especially with the piano as the main accompaniment.
But it works really well on this one. The song, from what I can gather, is about a guy that has kind of put himself through a lot in life. He’s rough around the edges. He lives his life a certain way, but he always recognizes that the girl he’s with makes him look good. She’s something really special in his life and he knows that he needs to hold onto her.
Really cool song. I hope it’s a big hit.
