A Thousand Horses got off to a banging start with Smoke. They reached number one of the chart with that one and then their second single came out. Another great song and it did pretty well on the charts. It made it into the top 25 and that’s not bad for a new band.
But it’s time to move into a new song and this time the boys are really rocking.
Southernality – A Thousand Horses
Now this is really bringing some rock into country. It’s a little Southern Rock, but I also sense a little bit of ’80s anthem rock. You have that feeling that you’re with all your friends having a good time just celebrating life. That’s a cool feeling and this one seems like it will play well live.
In fact, the song kind of has a live feeling to it. I’m sure that was the point. Fans are probably already singing along with this one and that’s probably why it’s the next single. I think it’s a good choice.
The lyrics are things we’ve heard before in country especially the last few years. It’s a celebration of the Southern lifestyle. Going to work. Working hard. But looking to have some fun while blowing off a little steam on the weekend.
It’s a Southern thing and there are definitely some things unique to the South in that sense, but it’s really for all the hard working people that love their family and love the small town life.
Great song. Something a little different from this band and I think it will do well.
