Little Texas - Young For A Long Time
There’s a lot of crossover success in country music today, but it was the 90’s era that set that all in motion with artists like Little Texas. “What Might Have Been” achieved huge success on country and pop radio which made them one of the biggest groups of the era. Their new album Young For A Long Time keeps the vocals key as they retain a modernized version of their signature sound. Their catchiness sits in the tempo driven songs that get you moving as they do with the title track “Young For A Long Time,” the guitar riff laden “Why I Brought My Boots,” the summertime sing-a-long “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” and “Rednecks Do Exist,” the latter which pokes some fun at the stereotypes of the south as they sing of seeing UFO’S, going out muddin’ and hunting, and having bonfires. However, their crossover appeal comes when they slow the pace down and utilize the lyrics to tug at our hearts as they do with “Take This Walk With Me” and “Slow Ride Home,” the latter which takes us on a vivid journey of a fallen soldiers final ride through his hometown on the way to his resting place. Throughout the album, Little Texas takes the familiar themes of today such as small town life and living (“Can’t Get In A Hurry Here” and “Kings of This Town”) and gives them a new depth through solid songwriting. As an additional bonus, they remind us as to why we love them as they include new versions of their biggest hits “God Blessed Texas” and “What Might Have Been” to close the album out. Sometimes in order for a genre of music to move forward, you have to rediscover those that paved the way and Little Texas certainly has and continues to remind us how to make a music with a meaningful impact with this collection of songs.
