This has always been true in popular music, and especially true in country music. So no harm, no foul on Thomas Rhett, a new artist who is understandably going to need time to find is own voice.
The problem is in the chosen derivatives. “Something to Do With My Hands” is a Billy Currington-style song presented with a Jason Aldean delivery.
So what could’ve been cute and goofy in a sellin’ turnips on a flatbed truck way, ends up just sounding dumb and ridiculous.
