One thing’s for sure about Big & Rich: They’re pros at what they do.
They’ve correctly assessed the general sound and lyrical themes that brought them their biggest radio success, and “Run Away With You” is a competent attempt to recreate what worked.
It’s the neutered approach they perfected with “Lost in This Moment”, and this time around, Big Kenny’s so far back in the mix that you can’t really hear him until the bridge.
It’s hard to believe that the duo that once sounded to startlingly progressive now sounds like a nostalgic throwback, but let’s be real. Country music’s radio filler from a decade ago was a lot easier on the ears than the noise that’s dominating today.
