Rascal Flatts is ready for their next single.
These guys never slow down when it comes to releasing great music. They slow things down again for this one and I’m sure the fans are going to love it. There is still nothing like Rascal Flatts on country radio. Check out Come Wake Me Up…
Come Wake Me Up – Rascal Flatts
It’s always kind of hard to tell the real reason someone is gone in a song. Come Wake Me Up is about a guy that can’t lose the memory of someone he has lost. She might have left him. I think that’s probably the case. She’s gone and moved along and he can’t let her go. But sometimes these songs throw me for a loop and they’re about death or a similar kind of loss in life.
The real meaning of the song, though, is loss and that feeling is conveyed well by Gary with his vocals and the other guys in the background with their assistance on vocals and instruments.
Rascal Flatts has always had their own sound. They are not shy about being a little pop. They mix the two worlds of music together so well and there is no reason to expect them to change now. I’ve been a fan since their first album came out over a decade ago. It’s not hard to believe that they’re still at the top of the country world all these years later. They make great music with great melodies. People always respond to great melodies.
I can see Come Wake Me Up becoming another top three singles for Rascal Flatts. That’s not much of a prediction since these guys have been some of the most consistent hit makers of the past decade.
It’s a good song. You feel the loss and if you’re going through something similar you can easily get lost in the lyrics and the melody.
What do you think?
Is this one going to be a hit?
