Charlie Daniels, ‘Take Back the USA’ – Song Review

Credit Charlie Daniels for not letting his personal politics overwhelm his new song about joining together to make America great again. On the surface, 'Take Back the USA' sounds like a rally cry for those who believe a change is needed in the White House -- and given the timing and the singer's opinion of the current administration, that's likely what he's hoping it becomes. But Daniels never places the blame squarely on Republicans or Democrats in this tune.

Faith Hill, ‘American Heart’ – Song Review

Faith Hill has a new album finished, but it seems fans won't get to hear it until a single sticks. 'American Heart' is at least the third new song fans nationwide have heard -- including 'Come Home' and the title track, 'Illusion,' played during the 'CMA Music Festival' special on ABC. Like the others, it's a thick production made accessible by the wonder of Hill's voice.

Darius Rucker, ‘True Believers’ – Song Review

Darius Rucker takes a simple story of two lovers who defy odds and skeptics and places it gently on a cloud in the stratosphere — a place few others can reach. ‘True Believers’ begins as a mild and unremarkable pop-country song before clever production and Rucker’s unforgettable voice find one soaring in the euphoria.

Since the singer is relatively new, however (the sexy single ‘Georgia Mud’ barely cracked the chart in 2011 ), we’ll restrain ourselves from over-selling this portrait of caged yearning. Smith is the perfect voice to tell the story.

Taylor Swift, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ – Song Review

Men and women will be divided on ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ Taylor Swift‘s new single. On one (woman’s) hand, it’s an empowering breakup song that slams the door on every no-good loser who’s come crawling back with apologies and “I love yous” at all hours of the night. From the male perspective: “Get over it.”

Toby Keith, ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ – Song Review

Toby Keith has found a fast racecar, and he’s not getting out of it until it falls apart. ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ is his 12th booze-fueled single in 20 years, including three recent ones in a row. The man sings what he knows, and it works… mostly.

The Dirt Drifters, ‘There She Goes’ – Song Review

The Dirt Drifters‘ rootsy new single ‘There She Goes’ immediately separates itself from the mainstream of country music without alienating or offending. The five piece band rely heavily on background vocals in a way no one has tried recently.
