Luke Bryan – Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye

Here’s another song from Luke Bryan to make all the country ladies swoon and sigh. Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye is the fourth single from the country crooner’s Tailgates & Tanlines album. It was released in August 2012 and although not as successful as his past singles, this one is steadily climbing the charts.

The song begun as a title in the head of the writer/producer Jeff Stevens who presented it to Bryan and together they collaborated with Shane McAnally to complete the song. The result is an incredibly honest and emotional track befitting the Bryan’s image as a sensitive country man that most women salivate for.

Although Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye had the makings of a wonderful song, however, the distracting music drowns out the heartfelt lyrics ruining it for the people who actually wanted to understand the message. Critics were a bit disappointed that one: it was too noisy, even for a country song and two:  that Bryan was not giving anything new.

Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye is not necessarily a bad song; it’s just too similar to his previous tracks. Luke Bryan needs to come up with a little variety as his novelty is fast becoming a thing of the past. And although he can always depend on the country women who are hanging on the edge of their pretty little skirts to hear his voice, Bryan needs to step it up if he wants to stay in the country music business.

Wanted – Hunter Hayes

Wanted shows that Hunter Hayes is no Justin Bieber, and that is a good thing. This fresh 20-year old boy serenades the right way. The lyrics are sincere without the cringe-inducing cheese.

With Wanted, no one can claim that Hayes is just a pretty boy because this pretty boy can write. The song showcases such heartfelt words that effortlessly blend perfectly with the music. The song is so romantic that being a wedding staple may not be too far-fetched.

The song joyfully proclaims there is no swag in the country so young girls rejoice.  If Hayes maintains such mature understanding of women then he’s set for life.  Wanted is a beautiful love song that women, not just girls, want to hear. It’s a ballad that shows promise of great things to come from such a young boy.

Hunter Hayes gives people hope that country/pop songs are finally ready to be good again. God bless this boy.
