There is definitely a Blake Shelton vibe here, with that gritty baritone voice. But we also hear a male version of Sheryl Crow, with that confident sing-speak casting images into the conversation. This is modern country radio fare; the infamous summer happy fun song.
If this is a pop gem, it is polished to a brilliant shine. From a bittersweet snapshot of lost love, gratitude, and change, we are able to access a lifetime of memories, scattered across these blue-collar lyrics.
From the artist:
Ceej and Nalle first met in Finland while Ceej was an exchange student. They formed a hard rock band, got signed by Warner in Finland, recorded an album and did some touring. Years went by but finally they decided to do it: write and release some amazing country songs.
