Album Review: Lucy Hale | ‘Road Between’

lucy_album_covere4f30aNew country artist Lucy Hale’s 11-track debut cd entitled ‘Road Between’ produced by Mark Bright and Mike Daly releases Tuesday available at both iTunes and Amazon.

The album includes the first single “You Sound Good To Me”, which was co-written by hit songwriters Ashley Gorley, Luke Laird, and Hillary Lindsey.   You can see the recently-released video for it below.

The uptempo “You Sound Good To Me” is a standout as it is radio-friendly, catchy, and fun.   A perfect choice for a lead off single in my opinion.  It could easily become a summer favorite of many.  Another favorite is the mid-tempo “From The Backseat”, another well-written tune that captures young love and many will relate to with lyrics like: “And we made the age old prom-night promise. Put the corsage right where I want it. We found a road with nobody on it. And we didn’t stop to think.”  Hale’s songwriting contribution “Just Another Song”  is a pleasant surprise, and the perfect way to end the album by showcasing her songwriting skills.  I found it well-written, beautiful, and poignant.  In my opinion, it is very reminiscent of the songwriting skills of Taylor Swift.

Overall, I found the album as a whole to be refreshing (no bro-country here), well-written, and Hale’s vocals strong throughout.  I would highly-recommend this album to anyone, although I think it would appeal mostly to a younger audience of contemporary country music fans.  It is not overly-pop influenced like a lot the songs out on the radio these days are, but it would not fall into the traditional country category that appeals to an older audience.  It falls somewhere in-between and certainly worth a listen.

Rated 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
