Review: The Road Hammers, “Girl on the Billboard”

With their song, “Girl on the Billboard”, The Road Hammers manage to create a sound that contains a bit of Garth Brooks and a little Dwight Yoakam to create an overall feeling of the good aspects of country music from the nineties.

The run-on lyrics about a man who is infatuated with a picture of a scantily clad girl on a Billboard may very well be silly, but it’s nearly impossible to avoid a smile when hearing this refreshingly energetic song.

  1. This song is a cover of huge Del Reeves hit from 1965. Del’s version had a more country feel to it (and was considerably more tongue-in-cheek), but this version isn’t bad

  2. Paul, thanks for the info. For some reason, I wondered if it was a cover. I don’t know much about this group or song. It just caught my ear on GAC one day.

  3. I agree that this song is clever, and it’s hard to hold back a smile to this song. But coming from a person that has heard this song countless times, it’s just hard not to find this song monotonous after a while. It’s a little dull melodically. Still, it’s a good choice for a single.
