Scotty McCreery is coming off two top 10 singles. It’s a little surprising, but those are the first top 10 singles of his career. And after those you would think he’d come out with another single from that same album, but now we’re getting a brand new song. Check out this recent live performance.
Southern Belle – Scotty McCreery
There is some growth here in this single. Scotty has always had the voice and demeanor to sing adult songs, but I think there is a natural growth in this song. The sound is different. It’s maybe a little more modern than what’s he’s done in the past, but I think it fits well with his traditional style while still working in today’s radio format.
The song is about the love of those Southern Belles out there. It’s the ladies from the South that have all the great traits that Southern men love. There are the usual images in the lyrics like sweet tea and the Bible Belt. Those are getting to be familiar, but I think they’ll always be there in country music.
The one thing that would be a little nice would be a song about those Midwestern Girls. I know we have a lot of country fans up here in Wisconsin, but I don’t think anyone has done a song about it before.
Maybe someday in the future.
I do like this song, though. I’m a Scotty McCreery fan. I hope this single does well. I’m on the fence about it. I’m not sure which way it will go.
