Are we about to get a LeAnn Rimes/Rob Thomas county duet on a new song with Jeff Beck on guitar?
Here's a clip. Liking it A LOT. That Jeff Beck solo is rocking, their voices sound great together, and the song sounds promising. I kind of hate that Rob has jumped on the duet bandwagon but hey it worked for Kelly Clarkson last year on a pretty average song. I don't think LeAnn gets much country airplay any more so this will have a battle on it's hands.
LeAnn's new album is due to be released in November. Darrell Brown is the album's producer and he's got a pretty good resume in rock and country.
Thanks. WQAL used to be my favorite station. Used to listen to it all day long at work. But they've gone way too pop for me so I switched. But I do listen to them during drive time. But still haven't heard it. Haven't heard it on Sirius either. Anyone know what station would be spinning it on Sirius?
A few questions: 1. Is this song done? +9 bullet about a month before release? 2. Is it me, but it's rising on iTunes, has no promotion but a video last week, what is going on? 3. Will we see a second single by September?
The song sounds great, I really don't understand what's going on.
Rob stated somewhere that they were considering Overjoyed as the second single. It was described in a review as being R&B tinged. I don't get that vibe from this simple acoustic performance. Unfortunately, Rob's voice already sounds very tired and they haven't even started promoting She's So Mean yet. This sounds like a very traditional sounding ballad from them. I would need to listed to the entire album before I cast a vote for this as the next single especially if She's So Mean fails to really hit at HotAC.
Finally Top 10 on HOT AC and picking up on CHR. Definitely a grower, not a shower, but I won't question what that says about the band. They are still one of the best American bands of the last 20 years, so, even though this isn't the most iconic song they've released, I hope it still goes #1.
The video is on large rotation on VH1 and I would anticipate it going Gung Ho closer to the CD release date.
Very disappointing chart performance, how are they not upset with this? Who's to blame..was this even promoted?
I hope for a huge second single but that rarely if ever happens with groups who have been around for a while. How this is struggling to stay up there but the latest Train song (which I think is pretty terrible) is moving on up as if they are a new trendy band is pretty unreal to me.
Their rollout of the song was not right or something. People are actually liking it that have heard it or it wouldn't have been in the itunes top 30 for the past few weeks with a lot less radio presense than the songs in front of it. I thought the label had a grand plan for the song/album but I guess not. It will have lost it's bullet on Pop by tomorrow, too. And they have yet to perform this on TV yet.
Train - cheesy songs to me but people have connected with them. The same reason people like Taylor Swift and Maroon5. To each their own. Hopefully, they will be able to go out on a nice US tour at least next year.
Well I have noticed the bullet is back on Hot AC, realistically it could be #6 next week. I need to stop riding the chart wave of this song and just let it go. At this point, if it exploded and went to the top, or if next week it imploded and dropped out of the Top 20, I wouldn't be surprised by either one.
I think it's safe to say that Train released a very, very good "Hey, Soul Sister", which I will predict we'll hear on "classic" or AC stations 30-40 years from now and based on that success, they have released material that sounds no different than what they put out in the early 2000's. To me, the performance of Hey, Soul Sister and the fact it was by Train is one of the most interesting stories in music I have seen in the past 10-15 years.
That being said, how Baz Luhrmann charted with a spoken word "song" in 1999 is still the most confusing chart performance I have ever seen in my life.
This board and in particular this forum have really slowed down this summer (hate to see it). Matchbox Twenty's album North is still holding strong on itunes (#2) so I would love to see some of the hold out stations go ahead and pick this up even if its only for a few weeks. Overjoyed is going to be single #2 and I'm sure the label will want to get this ballad out way before Christmas so I bet it will be on radio by the end of October if not sooner.

So this single didn't rocket to #1 like a Matchbox Twenty song is expected to do? I'm surprised. Mostly because, a) mb20 have been a Hot AC staple for more than a decade, despite being away for years but Rob filled the void, b) this song is catered more toward today's Hot AC format than something more traditionally mb20-sounding although that could have worked against it since the song is different from their usual sound. Either way, their album has some hits on it so if all goes well, there'll be something else to offer. I second Parade as the next single.
This song might stick around for a while, gain a huge bullet, lose its bullet entirely, who knows. It has been like #34 on POP for what seems to be two months.
Big negative on Pop today. I read a Billboard article about the rollout of North. I don't think they pushed She's So Mean to pop. Someone tweeted Paul from the band if they were disappointed with She's So Mean's performance. They said the song never caught on in Philly. Paul did reply and said yes they sort of were but it's not over yet. He said this last week. So who knows.....
