Chris Young, “You’re Gonna Love Me”
What’s this? Could it really be? Is this…country music? From a new artist who isn’t a wanna-be southern rocker, or an aging pop star, or an American Idol castaway?
Amen, brothers and sisters! This guy has cut his teeth on Randy Travis and George Strait, and owns the best lower register of a new country star since Josh Turner.
The song is solid, the performance is strong and you took off every track needed to make it suitable for Adult Top 40, you’d be left with three minutes of silence. Good country music from a young new singer. There’s hope for this genre yet.
