Single Review: “Bigger Than The Song” – Brittney Spencer

This track caught my ear because of the passion with which it’s sung, especially in the chorus. The chorus name checks Reba, Aretha, and Dolly, and you feel their influence in this because the vocals can be delicate as well as powerful and I love it! This track mixes country, with a slight sprinkle of gospel but the country vibe is there. There is some great guitar work on this too, which counters Brittney’s voice! I want to quote from the lyrics here:

“Makes you feel wanna be fancy like Reba,
A queen like Aretha,
In love like Johnny and June (A reference to Johnny Cash!)
Get mad like Alanis (love this)
Scream like Janet,
Do it all like Dolly would do…”

What a track!

This is a track from Brittney’s forthcoming album due out on 9th January – “My Stupid Life”.
