This week our Song Spotlight falls on a tune by an artist that represents a â€śfirstâ€ť in his career. For years weâ€™ve known Kristian Bush as the male counterpart of his duo with Jennifer Nettles, â€śSugarland.â€ť Together theyâ€™ve sold millions of hit records over the years, but not long ago Jennifer announced she would begin working on a solo album, and debuted as a solo act here on CT40 last October with â€śThat Girl.â€ť Now, a year laterâ€¦ Kristian proves that heâ€™s got the stuff to be a solo act as well, and recently debuted on the countdown with his first single.
The song, titled â€śTrailer Hitch,â€ť was written by Kristian, his brother, Brandon Bush, and Tim Owens, and is a funky, feel good â€śtoe tapperâ€ť with a valuable message. The lyric, â€śIâ€™ve never seen a hearse with a trailer hitchâ€ť personifies the notion that you canâ€™t take it with you, and subtly represents the joys of giving over the desire for material things. Produced by Byron Gallimore, Kristian Bushâ€™s â€śTrailer Hitchâ€ť is a clever, catchy tune and from all appearancesâ€¦ his very first single as a solo artist could be a big one. How big? Time will tell, but you can keep track of his progress right here at CT40.com, and by tuning in each weekend to â€śThe Country Top 40.â€ť See you then!
