What’s up warriors and today I’m going to be looking at a new generation of Country Music, when I say new generation I mean the next generation within the Nelson’s which is Willie Nelson’s Granddaughter Raelyn Nelson.
So a little background on Raelyn first having been raised on a steady diet of traditional country and gospel music and the gift of a guitar during her teenage years from her grandfather was the inspiration she needed to begin writing her own country and folk songs.
The band has been compared to Cheap Trick and Loretta Lynn and after hearing the song you can see why, and when their not in the studio recording songs there having fun on the road performing and that’s what there doing very soon to promote the upcoming album which this song will be featured on. (More about the album at the end)
When asked about being a solo artist Raelynn said:
“I don’t really have any desire to be a ‘solo-artist’. Everyone in my family who plays music has always placed a lot of importance on band chemistry, on stage, off stage and in the studio.”
Weed and Whiskey – Listen Here
So after listening to the song a few times I can say it’s a great addition to Country Music, now I’m not a big fan of country music but I can the hard work that has been put into this song and the chemistry the band has the music, lyrics and vocals flows so well on this track and this song is definitely a fun track to listen to and get you moving at parties and get those feet a stomping.
Strong Vocals and great guitar work on this track I like the tone and vibe from the instruments and they don’t overpower the vocals and vice versa.
Out of Five?
So this song is a good addition to the genre and a great peice of material from the band and definitely a band to keep your eye on for future music.
I’m giving this a Steady 3/5 Stars!
