Won’t Be Young Forever – Dakota Bradley
Last summer I was watching the local country festival here in Eau Claire, WI. My wife and I were walking around between shows and we heard this guy playing his heart out in the beer garden area. It turned out to be Dakota Bradley. He was singing with everything he had and people were really paying attention.
With his first single, you could hear the potential. But Dakota Bradley came across as this kid and nobody really knew what to make of it. Plus his marketing photos and stuff made him look like some punk kid. The new promo material makes him look more wholesome and more grown up. It makes a difference.
And this song sounds great. It has a mature sound and a mature story. You have a kid that realizes there are things coming in the future. Yes, he’s going to enjoy what’s going on right now, but that’s only because he knows that hopefully he’ll have a different life someday.
I think it’s the type of song that can become a hit.
