Song Review: Maggie Rose | “Girl In Your Truck Song”

Maggie-Rose-Girl-in-Your-Truck-SongMaggie Rose delivers a clever and catchy tune with her new song “Girl In Your Truck Song”.

She makes clever use of popular lyrics from many “bro-country” songs like “get your shine on”, “cruise”, “hop on in and slide over”, and many more threaded throughout the song.  You will find yourself listening over and over just to see how many “bro-country” song lyrics you can pick out! Aside from that fun aspect, you will want to listen again simply because it’s a catchy mid-tempo tune sung by a very talented vocalist.  Continue Reading →

Album Review: Miranda Lambert | ‘Platinum’

Miranda Lambert
With this brand new 16-track album entitled ‘Platinum’, Miranda Lambert’s 5th album seems both contemplative and playful rather than singing the revenge anthems like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Kerosene” that she’s been known for.  This is a Miranda who is having fun with a little self-effacing humor about aging (“Gravity’s a Bitch”), talks about life from the female perspective (“Girls”), the demands of beauty (“Bathroom Sink”), some really traditional and throwback country that I could imagine being played in the honky tonks on Broadway in the 60s (“All That’s Left” featuring the Time Jumpers), rip-roaring, rocking songs (“Somethin’ Bad” with Carrie Underwood), and tender ballads (“Holding On To You”). Overall, Miranda seems to be in a very contemplative place in her life for this album and wanting to share a less serious side of herself taking chances throughout the entire album.
