This song isn’t particularly new. It came out last July. However, it’s new to me as of this week. I was listening to WXPN and they played it. I liked it a lot, but I was surprised at first because it seemed way more country than the music they normally play. Then I found out that the reason the song was being played was because The Kentucky Gentlemen are one of the five artists selected to participate in the first Black Opry Residency that is a collaboration between WXPN and The Black Opry designed to help develop and elevate Black Americana artists.
The Kentucky Gentlemen are composed of 27 year old twins Brandon and Derek Campbell, who hail from Kentucky but are now based in Nashville. They play country music with an R&B influence. In addition to this song, I really like the entire EP it came from, The Kentucky Gentlement, Vol. 1. I look forward to hearing more from them in the future.
