With time comes change. Some will welcome it, others will be less enthusiastic about it. When it comes to the Country Music Industry, the diversity factor has significantly increased, with artists moving from the genre’s traditional routes. There will always be a divide no matter what genre you love or loath.
For the more traditional of Country Fans, Kendal Conrad is on hand with the release of ‘Country Queen, which she originally wrote for Reba Mcentire. The song for an official release is brilliant in the essence of what it is. Kendal with this single has proven that you don’t need over the top beats or instrumentals to come out with something, original and pleasant to listen to.
Kendal’s voice is distinct to the extent that you can immediately recognise it when a song of hers comes on. I can’t fault the song in that respect as she’s vocally on point, and the style of the track suits her voice to every last note. That very notation highlights the quality in the production of the piece as it screams originality. The backings do not hinder or drag down the track, and they are placed well as it adds considerably to the enjoyment or listening to ‘Country Queen’.
Country Music is forever going through a constant stage of change in its diversity element. Artists are taking risks, and adapting to what the end listener is wanting. But there will always be those fans who want something original and different, here is an example of which is both traditional, well composed and formulated. I’m sure that Reba would be proud with Kendal Conrad’s Country Queen.You can purchase Country Queen on respected outlets such as Amazon and Itunes.
