I’ve been meaning to write about this song for a few weeks. These guys have kind of been bringing something different to country music. I would say we’ve heard this type of country before on the radio, but it’s been probably four decades. Check this one out and see where you think the influences are.
Party Like You – The Cadillac Three
The look is something different. You have the long haired southern boys singing the kind of music that makes you think of The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. That’s where I think the influence, but for rocking songs like this The Cadillac Three seems to ramp things up to another level and it’s certainly not something you hear in country right now.
The guys didn’t really reach the upper regions of the charts with their first single. This one is starting its climb and I’m not really sure how far it will go. Country fans are certainly open to party songs right now. It seems like every song on the chart is about a party or something, but this one has a little different sound.
And that might be what pushes it over the edge. I don’t know if it’ll be a huge radio hit, but I think people are going to download this one and crank it whether they’re partying out on some dead end road or at somebody’s house on the weekend.
