“That Don’t Sound Like You”
Written by Rhett Akins, Lee Brice, and Ashley Gorley
I really like Lee Brice. He’s got an interesting voice, and his phrasing is always original. It’s like he sneaks up behind his notes and surprises them.
“That Don’t Sound Like You” succeeds purely on Brice’s merits as a vocal stylist. The song itself is iffy.
As sweet as the sentiment is, the narrator’s concern that the girl’s new man has compromised her identity stands on some mighty weak foundation.
Maybe if all you knew about the girl was that she used to like truck tires on a gravel road and doing cannonballs, you don’t really know her as well as you’d like to think?
Anyway, he sells it, but it’s not one of his better efforts, even if it’s better than most of what his peers are doing.
