Kelly Brock is a new voice on the country music scene. This is a girl that clearly listens to country radio, and headed to the recording studio with a plan to put together a CD that would catch the ear of music directors.
The lead and title cut has radio written all over it, and the second song Cowboy Boots and Levis certainly has the sound to be a huge radio song too.
Brock has a definite modern Nashville sound going on.
So then, the question I had to ask myself is whether the world needs another country singer that has twisted in a bit of rock and has created an album that is so obviously made to be radio friendly?
If you're looking for lyrics that have depth, pass on this one. For the most part this is a collection of songs with catchy hooks that you can sing along to on the radio without really thinking about the words.
Vocally, Brock can sing. She has a nice voice, but it won't necessarily stand out as unique either.
This is an album that radio should love, and you could well find yourself popping along to a number of these songs as you listen to your favourite country music station in the coming months. On that level this should be a winner. From a current country sound with radio hits in mind Brock has a CD full of potential.
If however you want something fresh from your country, then this isn't it.
This is formula country, but Brock at least follows the formula well.
