“Long Stretch of Love”
Written by David Haywood, Josh Kear, Charles Kelley, and Hillary Scott
A woefully anemic rocker.
Lady Antebellum have never exactly been known for over-the-top emoting, but this might be the most listless I’ve ever heard the band.
I can almost picture them taking the stage and someone handing them the lyric sheet as the song starts, and they’re trying to just get the words out that are on the paper. No time to learn the melody or think about the meaning of the song.
There’s such a disconnect between lyric and performance here that I can’t even get my head around this being a commercially released recording, let alone a single from a major artist.
