This is the first time we’ve had Allie Louise featured on CML and it’s a good debut. This song is something a little different, but it fits in well with what’s going on with country music right now.
And one thing that’s going on with country music at the moment is that women are coming back to the charts with a force. Women had kind of disappeared from the radio for a while and it was time for that to swing back in the other direction.
Check this one out and see what you think.
Stilettos – Allie Louise
The hook on this one is that women are able to wear their pain like they wear their stilettos. They are able to mask any pain they’re feeling. They may be feeling the pain, but they’re strong and they won’t show weakness. From my experience that is definitely true. Women are strong in a lot of ways including when it comes to wearing shoes or when they’re feeling down about something.
From a song and melody standpoint this is also a strong song. It’s kind of a mid-tempo melody and it works well. There is a force there that gives off a feeling of power and strength. That obviously fits with the theme of the song and overall it just seems to work well. It’s kind of an anthem in a way. I’m not a woman so you’ll have to tell me if this is inspirational.
What do you think of this new one?
