Texas and the women who live in it deserve better than this.
The Road to No. 1
Little Texas had three No. 1 singles, and they were consecutive. This is the second, following “What Might Have Been” earlier in the year.
The No. 1
This is a dumb song without charm, sung with low energy and produced like off rack eighties glam rock watered down by a Music Row distillery.
I don’t have much to say about it beyond that. There are a lot of great songs about Texas. There are even some great ones about women from Texas.
But this? This is terrible. And it’s not even their worst No. 1 single.
The Road From No. 1
That worst single is up next, and then Little Texas thankfully exits this feature.
“God Blessed Texas” gets a D.
