Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky
Every Country music fan loves that southern Blues-Rock infused sound that the south is well known for, along with the catchiness and versatility that comes with it. Hailing from the landscapes of Burleson, Texas, singer/guitarist and songwriter Todd Barrow is a perfect example that some of the best Country music still comes from the south with his newest single “Hot Southern Night”.
This song’s title completely lives up to its name. This high energy Country Rock song is chock full of hooks, riffs and that southern charm that’s very hard to resist. Todd‘s mid-to-high range vocals sustain very effective melody choices and contagiously catchy lyrics that reel you in from beginning to end. The crunchy mid-gain guitar tones are beautifully mixed and really adds that energetic ingredient that’ll get audiences sweaty on the dance floor. It’s brilliantly structured with a powerfully catchy chorus that’ll have you singing along very quickly, and the punchy rhythm section really adds a bounce that’ll keep feet moving and entire venues grooving. It’s just a fantastically fun song that pays homage to earlier influences of the Country genre, but really takes on a life of its own with the modern Rock sensibility that Todd encompasses brilliantly.
It’s also interesting to note that Todd Barrow has also performed at the renowned Ole Red venue in both Tishomingo, Oklahoma and Nashville, Tennessee; Blake Shelton’s venue and respective stomping grounds. Once you take a listen to “Hot Southern Night”, you’ll become an instant Todd Barrow fan, and you’ll thank us later for recommending him. The single is available on YouTube as well as digital music streaming platforms.
