I’ve been waiting a while to hear this one.
Lee Brice has been on a strong run the last few years. He’s been racking up hits on the radio and that’s had him right there with a solid start to what could be a strong career.
Now he’s back with a brand new song that sounds like a Lee Brice song with some new little touches.
That Don’t Sound Like You – Lee Brice
I’m going to say that this is a love song, but it’s a different kind of love song than we’ve heard before. I think we’ve probably covered this situation before in country music, but this one sounds fresh.
The title does a good job of giving us a good idea of what the song is about. It’s about a girl that calls up her ex-boyfriend.
But the guy doesn’t recognize her voice all that much. They get to talking and he’s apparently seen her new haircut and she’s been changing a bunch of other things about herself.
It turns out that she’s been making the changes for the new guy she’s with. But now she’s having second thoughts…
This can happen to anybody. You are with someone and it’s going great, but you start focusing on the negatives and you wonder if you want something else. Then you find what you think you want, but you have to start changing yourself. And sometimes those changes aren’t good ones.
This is a great song and it has some different musical touches to it. It’s definitely a love song with that kind of feel, but it has a few haunting-type sounds as well.
I like it. I think it’ll be another hit for Lee Brice.
What do you think?
