Single Review: Lee Brice, “That Don’t Sound Like You”
Single Review: Jason Aldean, “Tonight Looks Good on You”
Single Review: Frankie Ballard, “Young & Crazy”
Single Review: Jason Aldean, “Just Gettin’ Started”
“Just Gettin’ Started” Jason Aldean Written by Rhett Akins, Chris DeStefano, and Ashley Gorley Competently performed. Creatively stagnant. Completely unnecessary. Grade: D
Single Review: Reba McEntire, “Going Out Like That”
Single Review: Thomas Rhett, “Get Me Some of That”
Better than it has any right to be.
The mind-numbingly dull lyric has nothing new to offer, with details that sound more like a pitch for an Axe commercial than an actual documentation of a realistic human experience. The band also phones it in, with nothing more distinctive than a Karaoke backing track.
Single Review: Jason Aldean, “When She Says Baby”
Single Review: Chase Rice, “Ready Set Roll”
He may have been the runner-up on one of the weakest seasons of Survivor (finishing second to
this strategic powerhouse), but Chase Rice has beaten tough competition from the likes of Jason Aldean’s “1994,” Parmalee’s “Carolina,” Ashton Shepherd’s “This is America,” Blake Shelton’s “Boys Round Here,” Krystal Keith’s “Daddy Dance with Me,” and Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night” for the title of 2013’s worst country single.
Album Review: Blake Shelton, Based On a True Story…
Based On a True Story…
Bear in mind that Blake Shelton isn’t just another country singer. He is the reigning Male Vocalist of the Year for both the ACM and CMA Awards, as well as the CMA Entertainer of the Year. Due to his position as a judge on “The Voice,” he is one of the most recognizable country stars around. Therefore, his new album Based on a True Story… isn’t just another album release. It’s an event. It’s a highly anticipated occasion. So how does Shelton kick off this record?
