CD Review: "Get Loud" - Codie Prevost

CD: "Get Loud"
Artist: Codie Prevost
Release Date: June 22, 2010
Label: Good Spirit Records

There are many similarities between Canada and the United States and fortunately good country music is one of them. Among their many quality exports to the US is the music of Codie Prevost. With his combination of boyish charm and a fire in his voice, Codie Prevost is a stone that's now a gem shining in the glimmer of the country music spotlight.

Codie's latest cd, "Get Loud", is aptly named because that's exactly what the double SCMA "Fan's Choice Entertainer of the Year" is doing. He's getting loud and making people stop and listen. This cd will become a permanent addition to many playlists and there isn't a single song you'll want to "skip" when your iPod's in shuffle mode.

With a cd that's chock full of songs like "Get Loud" and "Standing Still" that automatically shift your cheesy dance moves in overdrive and songs like "How to Forget" that grab your heartstrings, how do you choose a favorite? If I had to pick a favorite song, I'd be at a loss because I like them all but if you really held me to the fire, I'd have to say "From Where I Stand". The song is so well crafted, both lyrically and melodically, and I'm an admitted sap for a good, emotional song that will bring tears to my eyes. I am willing to bet this one winds up playing at many weddings and brings Kleenex a huge profit.

All in all, I think this is a great cd. Codie Prevost has turned my head and more importantly, turned my ears. Definitely a good choice if you're looking for new music.

You can purchase Codie's music on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby
