Amy Dalley, “Let’s Try Goodbye”
Curb Records is continuing its maddening approach with Dalley’s debut album: keep throwing singles at radio until one sticks, and keeping the album shelved until one does. The travesty is that while there hasn’t been a big hit yet, Dalley received signficant airplay for “Men Don’t Change” and the stunning “I Would Cry”, but rather than see if consumers would back her, Curb has kept the project at bay.
So here we are in 2007, with another track from the long-delayed project being sent to radio. “Let’s Try Goodbye” is one of her strongest efforts yet, a convincing break-up song by a woman who wants to hold on but realizes it’s pointless, and she loves the man she’s leaving too much to hate him, which she will if she stays. There’s a neat trick of keeping the pace slow during the verses, building during the bridge and having a powerful, up-tempo chorus that works well without sounding gimmicky. Hopefully radio will bite so we can hear the rest of the album, though with a couple of more singles, the whole damn thing will have already been sent to radio.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL SONG. I CAN NOT WAIT TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE A COMPLETE ALBUM. AMY APPEARS TO BE NOT ONLY, A TALENTED SONGWRITER, AND SINGER, BUT A BEAUTIFUL GIRL. COUNTRY MUSIC NEEDS A SONGWRITER, SINGER WHO APPEALS TO ALL AGES. GREAT SONG
I fail to see why artists such as Miranda Lambert who have poor chart success with barely top 20 song can get her album out and baith in her well deserved and rightous success while Amy Dalley who had a few top 40’s in her early songs isn’t given the same opertunity. Chart success isn’t what makes the artist big, its album sales. WHy not give Amy a frigain chance. She’ll release her whole album before we get to buy it at this rate.
I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND FOR THE LIFE OF ME WHY THIS GIRL DOES NOT HAVE AN ALBUM!! I HAVE BEEN A FAN FOR YEARS! SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED PEOPLE I KNOW, ALOT BETTER SONGS THAN MIRANDA WHATS HER NAME! I LOVE THIS SONG BY THE WAY, I CAN FEEL HER PAIN! LOVE IT!
I love Amy’s songs!!! Let’s Try Goodbye plays over and over in my head. LOVE IT.
I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for YEARS to buy Amy’s album, but Curb won’t let me. What the hell is wrong with them? Just release the album already and let us make the decision on whether Amy is worth it or not. I think she is.
Amy’s songs are fabulous!!! This song is awesome. Let’s get her songs out to the public.
WHAT IN THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE PEOPLE AT CURB? I AGREE, SOMEONE LIKE MIRANDA LAMBERT CAN HAVE ALBUMS, WHOSE SONGS REALLY DONT MAKE ALOT OF SENSE! AND AMY CANT? COME ON!!! RELEASE THE ALBUM!!
