Kate & Kacey, “Dreaming Love”

kate-and-kacey“Love, love, love, love…” crazy love? Unfortunately, no. There is a brief moment at the beginning of “Dreaming Love” where you think Kate & Kacey might break into Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love.” But no, we’re not that fortunate.

Kate & Kacey do have some songwriting chops. In fact, they have a co-write with Jamey Johnson coming out on George Strait’s upcoming album.  However, “Dreaming Love” is not a shimmering display of those abilities.  Overall, the song is plagued with a  pretty but forgettable tune (slightly reminiscent in parts of Heidi Newfield’s “Johnny and June”), decidedly unmemorable vocals and unimaginative lyrics expounding on that n’er-written-about subject, love.

In some ways, “Dreaming Love” feels like the beginning of the “Taylor Swift era” in country music, where young female singer-songwriters inspired by Swift’s success share their diaries with the world through heartfelt lyrics and music that has a hint of country but would never be out of place on a Disney soundtrack.  The funny thing is, this song would not only be more interesting with Swift singing, but you know she would have written a more interesting song to begin with … who da thunk?

  1. We love country and Kara is in love with Kate and Kacey! Kara wants to be a country singer and Carrie wants to be an actress! We’d love for you to check out our site too, except for the fact most of it is blogs, and pictures. We hope to have new new pics and new and improved carrieandkara videos, which r hilarious! Okay, well we will talk to u all soon! Message us @ carrieandkara@usa.com! we love you all! Thanks a bunch! =)

  2. Not their best, admittedly, but I still really like their vocals. There are plenty of great songwriters in Nashville who probably have much better songs for them to sing. This is a case, imo, where the artist needs to look outside for material.

  3. I have just added the Lyrics to the albulm ‘Dreaming Love’ to my music lyrics website. I think there music is actually quite good. You may also wish to update their links above as it is now dead. It looks as though the http://www.myspace.com/kateandkacey address is the latest for them.
