If you’re like me you don’t watch American Idol. It’s not that I have anything against the show it just doesn’t interest me. It never really has and I’m not sure why. I certainly like the music the people on the show have released over the years. It’s been great, but when I first heard about Phillip Phillips I didn’t realize he was the winner of the show recently.
Home is Phillip Phillips’ debut release. It showed up on CMT and I thought it was worth sharing.
Home – Phillip Phillips
It’s good. I like the sound. It’s kind of old school meets new school. The song is obviously pop, but there is some country and Americana mixed in there. It’s really interesting and I can see why the fans of Phillip’s (or is it Phillips’?) have downloaded it a bunch of times.
American Idol is responsible for some great music including Carrie Underwood who is probably the most successful female country artist of all time. Don’t agree with that statement? Stack her accomplishments up against anybody’s. The show and those involved deserve credit for that. Even if some of us have never seen an episode the show deserves credit for discovering some great talent that puts out great music.
Phillip Phillip’s is another great artist. It’s obvious why he won. He’s got crossover appeal and should sell a ton of songs. It will be interesting to see what he comes out with next.
Will there be some country stuff on the record?
I’m hoping so.
