Austin Webb’s newest single “All Country On You”, set to officially impact country radio on 1/5/15, is an anthem for what Taylor Swift has previously hinted at.  If you don’t want the crazy don’t cause it! “Can’t blame no one else when you brought it all on yourself” is how it’s phrased in the song.

Written by Josh Kear, Chris Tompkins and Mark Irwin, it’s definitely a catchy song, one that makes you grin and sing along with easily.  “Going Carrie Underwood on my truck” is the line that made Austin record this song, as it’s a very clever and distinct line I can’t blame him for that choice.  My favorite lines in this song are from the chorus “Don’t tick her off, break her heart, tell her lies – don’t feed her any lipstick alibis – ain’t nothing she can’t see through.”  I love the “lipstick alibis” and the way the whole song’s set up to be one clever line after another, a how-to that’s upbeat without being vapid or caustic.

Austin consistently impresses and after hearing this and other songs of his, I’m convinced of his immense vocal prowess.  I feel confident in saying that this song will perform well as will Austin as an artist.  His career’s just getting started and there’s only up from here.  I can’t wait to see what else he has to offer us and what else the lyricists Kear, Tompkins and Irwin will dream up.
