…It was co-written by Shane McAnally, Trevor Rosen and Sam Hunt. Wait what?!? Sam Hunt? Yup, there is an acoustic guitar and a steel guitar heard in this song and Sam Hunt was a part of it. Listening to this song makes me realize that maybe Sam maybe could make good Country music, but instead chooses to push out Pop drivel. But back to the song. William’s vocals are definitely Country, like a mix of Joe Nichols and Blaine Larsen. The song itself is actually very well written despite the somewhat generic topic of meeting a girl and describing how she makes the male narrator feel. Kudos to the songwriters for making this a pretty good song. The production on this song allows this song to breathe, allowing room for the Country instruments to be heard as well as room for William’s smooth vocals.
Overall, this song is definitely a bright spot in Country music. The song has an incredible soothing feel to it, and also mentions a guy’s love for a woman without objectifying her as a sex object like so many of these songs tend to do. I can admit when even artists I don’t care for make good music. No, I’m not talking about William, i’m talking about Sam Hunt. As for William, he is definitely a male that I will be rooting for this year.
