ADD-I Got The Boy-Jana Kramer (Elektra/Warner)

They way this is put together is really well done. The record opens up with a whiff of Eagles in that acoustic guitar. Then her voice comes in with a cadence that, at first sounds like this is gonna be another one’a them teen girl pop-ish anthems. What Taylor hath bestowed upon us. It continues that way for a bit, but by about six lines in we understand this is a woman talking to us here. Then at the fifty second mark it morphs into a modern Country song popped out of the classic mold. Lost man, heart break, sung with a proper hint of Country inflection and accent. It’s not a cross-over attempt and I much appreciate it for the integrity behind that decision. I believe we got us a hit record here.
