I almost wonder if each new Currington single release is determined by the flip of a coin. Heads – release a beer drinking song; tails – release a sexy come-on love song. Apparently this time it landed on tails.
“Hey Girl” has some infectious guitar work going for it, but it’s not enough to elevate the song beyond what it is – regular dime-a-dozen radio filler with a total lack of a lyrical hook.
For all that vocal
talent, it’s a shame Currington’s output has become so frustratingly predictable. I guess I’ll just keep listening to “Love Done Gone” until he bucks the trend once more.
