Jennifer Nettles, “That Girl” – Single Review

Jennifer Nettles, That Girl

As one of country music's finest vocalists, it was only a matter of time before Jennifer Nettles would venture into a solo project. That time has finally come. Her newly released "That Girl," expected to impact radio on Aug. 19, is raising the bar for every other mainstream solo female artist. Keeping true to her traditional roots, Jennifer peppers in jazz, pop and even soul influences on the new track, balancing out what is commerically viable and what is true to country music: storytelling.

While the men continue debasing themselves by releasing party song after tired and cliched party song, the females continue to deliver quality material that serves as a beacon of hope for all of us "close-minded traditionalists."

"That Girl" is a sultry and slinky response to Dolly Parton's iconic song "Jolene."

The Band Perry – ‘Don’t Let Me Be Lonely’ – Single Review

The Band Perry’s new single ‘Don’t Let Me Be Lonely’ has a
lot to live up to. Following the success of ‘Better Dig Two’ and recent radio
#1, ‘DONE.’, many people will be expecting big things from the country pop
trio. ‘Don’t Let Me Be Lonely’ moves away from the upbeat, rocky, sass-driven
tracks that The Band Perry do so well, and instead opts for a much sweeter
ballad.

It is difficult to say whether the song leans more towards
country or soft rock, as there’s definitely a division between the verse and
chorus, but either way it’s definitely one that grows on you with each listen.
With a chorus that has a hard-hitting drumline and driving electric guitars,
following through with a killer solo just before the bridge, you’d be forgiven
for thinking The Band Perry were trying to turn into a rock band. And you’d
also kind of be right, because it certainly seems like they’re being pushed in
that direction. However, the verses, built upon piano and acoustic guitar
(particularly the first verse), offer something more country and a sound that’s
really pleasant and suits them. In fact, I wish that they’d kept more of the
song in this vein, because it is rather over-powered later on by rock ballad sensibilities.
