    Very pretty song.  She sounds like Dolly sometimes, and I know that’s her Idol.

    I love this, it’s gorgeous & I love the instrumentation.

    I like it.

    Yay!! This is much better than Tough. Kellie sounds great and IMO this is a lot like 90s country/pop. It still feels current, the melody is beautiful, and I love how mature Kellie sounds! I think this could be a good sized hit, maybe even t10. The only part I’m not as crazy about is the bridge where Kellie’s straining but other than that, this is her best single yet.

    I still like Tough better than this song, but I love this song also. But Tough still has my vote as the better single.

  • Pam

    This one is so much better than Tough!  I think it has the potential to do very well for Kellie and I hope it does.  I really like this one. Thanks mj!

  • Miz

    I like it. Ronnie, I agree that she sounds a lot like Dolly. That’s a huge compliment.

    For Kellie, yes.

    “Tough” is a great song IMHO. For someone like… Gretchen Wilson. LOL.

    This is… more Kellie. It’s sweeter with a bit of tang. Which is her. But I don’t know. It’s not BANG. It’s just kind of nice. Top 10? Hmm. What’s unique? What’s going to set Kellie apart as a unique artist? Hm.

    Frankly, this song shows Kellie’s vocal weakness and strength. She’s got a thin voice, not much range and she’s not really reaching here – lyrically or singing wise. But she’s got great twang, nice inflections. AND a whole lot of spunk.

    Me? I believe that Kellie’s star quality is her persona. She is a definite hoot. She’s got charisma. She’s Gracie Allen and Lucy Ball…That Girl…Mary Tyler Moore and Jennifer Aniston on Friends…Tina Fey on 30 Rock…see what I mean?

    This girl could kill in sitcom. And it’s about time for another Gracie.

    Really nice she doesn’t have the best vocal ability but I think she sounds great on this song and she did on Tough as well.  I hope it takes off for her no one would deserve it more.

    Definitely liking this better than Tough.

  • TylerWV

    I love this!  Her tone is so beautiful on this song and the lyrics are wonderful.  I hope this is her breakout hit, shes worked so hard.  I didnt care for Tough at all.

  • Kylee

    I really like this! Hopefully country radio responds well to this.

    My favorite Kellie song yet. Top 10 could be tough since she doesn’t have a penis and her name is not Carrie, Taylor or Miranda, but this song could have a shot. I’m wondering if a January release won’t have her in competition with new music from other big names on radio, but I don’t know that for certain.

    I saw on one of those charts showing the monetary worth of music stars that Kellie is in the $5 million range. That’s not exactly slumming, but it seems she is still seen somewhat as a second-tier performer by some folks. Maybe she is, but if so, that’s a pretty good tier to be on, and I’d love to see all my favorite Idols reach it.

    Kellie’s a beautiful woman with a big voice.  Love the song and love how absolutely country she is.  She has the advantage of being multi-talented and one of these days she may get that sitcom.  Hope so.
