I am a huge fan of Natalie Stovall. She has a grit and roughness that really hasn't been heard since Miranda Lambert first hit the scene with "Gasoline". You won't hear "woe is me, he left me, I can't go on" in Natalie's music. What you will hear is hard rockin' determination, country gumption, a set of brass balls and "in your face" intention.
Her debut single "Come on With It" was a huge hit on Sirius XM's The Highway and country fans who like their country with an edge. The single peaked at 43 on the charts and was a big seller at digital outlets. Her new single, "Mason Jar", co-written with Sarah Buxton, Jesse Frasure and Tina Parol, is hopefully set to follow that same path, only head higher up the charts. The single immediately kick starts with Natalie showing off her mad fiddle skills and a steady drum beat that will have you moving whether you realize it or not. This is definitely a "song to get a speeding ticket by". It's musical flirtation, a lyrical tease and in the end, this single comes out as strong as fresh made hillbilly moonshine and will leave listeners with a lasting buzz.
Natalie Stovall is one to keep your eyes and ears on, she's already proven she's got what it takes to be a major player in country music in the near future and she's really just getting started. Can't wait to see what else she's got brewing down the road.
