An Interview With Jennie Angel
A brand-new release from Jennie Angel gives off a warming southern rock approach with a genuine and incredibly authentic character that features Homegrown to really drive in that country undertone and it works like a charm.
"Tennessee" is absolutely massive and anthemic as it comes through with an impactful feel and a full-bodied soundscape that has a way of feeling energetic but also very welcoming.
This track feels great to listen to and by the end of it you'll be singing right along with the chorus with your hands in the air and wondering why you haven't been hearing this song on the radio for the past year.
The single has everything you could ask for from a real deal country rock banger and the delivery from both Jennie and Homegrown is spot on and passionate boasting loads of heart and that is the part of it that really becomes the most addicting.
There's some outstanding guitar work all over this track as well which you come to look for with good country rock songs these days and it just goes to show that this genre of music has always given us such bountiful musicianship and the reason it's gained so much praise and why country music in general has such a die-hard fan base it's because people relate to it.
Songs like this one work for anyone's hometown. You just feel that attachment to the song and because she's singing about her place, you automatically get that nostalgic feel.
And all this in combination mix this song Feel like a hug from a loved one. It feels like being home no matter who you are or where you're from.
I think good country rock songs are able to portray certain kinds of emotion and a lot of the time it's done through an energy level. It's like an excitement that's put forth and that's why songs like this, although the song writing is amazing, the performance has to be really there for this whole thing to come through the way it's supposed to.
And with this song everything is right at that sweet spot where it has that extra added meaning.
Not to mention this was produced very well and has an incredible radio friendliness to it.
