The last time we checked in with JT Hodges he had the incredibly catchy Already High on the charts. That song was criminally excluded from radio. Well, it did get some play, but not nearly as much as it deserved.
Now JT is back with another new song and it’s really catchy once again.
Ray Bans – JT Hodges
You just get the feeling that this guy has incredible melodies rolling through his head all the time. And he has this unique way of bringing them to life.
This one doesn’t really sound like another country song out there right now. It’s like a mix of pop, light rock and some country all rolled into one. I could hear Restless Heart doing this one back in the early ’90s.
The song seems to be about a guy that is looking back on a relationship he had in the past. It had to mean something to him even though they’re together now. He’s thinking back on how good it was and the item that kind of triggers the memory is that pair of Ray Bans of his that she had the last time they were together.
He smiles thinking back on the relationship. It was a good time and he has to laugh a little bit thinking that he never did get those shades back…hopefully she still has them on.
Great song from JT Hodges. I know he’s been struggling for that first big hit, but you have to think it will happen if he keeps putting out great songs like this one.
