Guitar-B-Que @ Loser’s Bar, Nashville, TN | August 12, 2015 – Review

Guitar-B-Que-Losers

Having seen the line up for this year’s Guitar-B-Que in aid of St Jude’s Research Hospital, I was excited about the prospect of seeing some of my favorite artists all in a fairly intimate setting. Cam’s ‘Burning House’ is one of my very favorite songs of the year so far, and Jon Pardi’s debut album and B-Sides completely won me as a big fan. A Thousand Horses were more tricky since they are one of those bands who seem very moulded into something wholly commercial, and hence less authentic. Eli Young Band I’m going to admit, were not on the list of artists I wanted to see. Lee Brice however was, and I am quite a fan of many of his songs, and it was his inclusion that really made me want to go.

A Thousand Horses ‘(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial’ – Single Review

AThousandHorses2015g

You know how artists often get accused of releasing the same old crap, and listeners are known to complain about “every song sounding the same” when they listen to country radio? Well. A Thousand Horses (shouldn’t it be One Thousand Horses?) are taking this to new heights with their second single ‘(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial’. They’re not using the exact same melody as their debut single ‘Smoke’ per se, but it is surprisingly similar when compared. For the most part the two melodies occupy the same key, and opt for the same rises and falls, while the phrasing structure and tempo also contribute to the similarities. Generally the differences are found when the melodies both rise but, for example, one of them rises a little higher, or vice versa, while perhaps one line is more decorated than the other at times. ‘Drunk Dial’ is also a little faster in pace than ‘Smoke’, although not enough to set it apart.

A Thousand Horses ‘Southernality’ – Album Review

a thousand horses southernality

After lead single ‘Smoke’ hit #1 just one week before their debut album ‘Southernality’ hit stores, A Thousand Horses are in a prime commercial position that is likely to afford them maximum sales possible and the highest chart ranking they can muster. I have personally been surprised by how much they have taken off; I felt ‘Smoke’ was a generic mainstream country rock song that overstretched a simple metaphor, from a band that was trying too hard to look like cool outlaws. I didn’t expect too much from an album that boasted a dozen other songs from a frankly uninspiring group.

Once again this week Little Big Town’s ‘Girl Crush’ takes #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, spurned by a further 89,000 downloads this past week, leading them to Platinum certification for the popular track as it enters top 10 at radio. Meanwhile Sam Hunt’s ‘Take Your Time’ has reclaimed #1 from them on Country Streaming Songs, just as ‘House Party’ rises up the other charts as his new single. Speaking of new singles, A Thousand Horses are just about to release one in the form of ‘(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial’ after debut ‘Smoke’ hit #1 on Country Airplay this week. Finally, #1 on Top Country Albums is Zac Brown Band’s ‘Jekyll + Hyde’, reclaiming the spot from Brantley Gilbert’s ‘Just As I Am’ which got a boost from its re-release last week. And there are a couple of new releases, most prominently Jake Owen’s ‘Real Life’ and Darius Rucker’s ‘Southern Style’, as well as the debut of Chris Young’s ‘I’m Comin’ Over’ on radio.
