“Hell of a Night”
Written by Jaron Boyer, Zach Crowell, and Adam Sanders
I’m starting to believe that the “bro-country” movement doesn’t even exist, and it’s really just an attempt to ascribe meaning to a trend as old as Music City itself: lazy songwriting.
If country song lyrics were Legos, “Hell of a Night” could be fully constructed using a basic starter kit. There is not a single fresh line, let alone a fresh idea. It sounds so much like a Jason Aldean record that you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s one of his older singles that you completely forgot about because it doesn’t have him trying to rap in it.
Nobody’s going to remember this song in a year. Me? I’ve already forgotten about it.
