The song that Sammy Kershaw is hoping will be his comeback hit is written so that it will appeal to just about everyone. It gives shout-outs to workers across America: postal workers, teachers, vending machine suppliers, soldiers, etc. You name the career; it’s probably wedged in here somewhere.
Not only is this song pandering in every way possible, Kershaw’s signature twang is somehow replaced by vocals with no personality. It’s unfortunate that an artist who could be enjoying artistic freedom at this point in his career is resorting to clichéd please-everyone songs like this to record.
