In her smash single Tennessee Whiskey, Lynne Taylor Donovan brings out the best of her ability to the global table.
It’s a war cry from a pop star who is on the verge of blasting through a brick wall with all of the immense power she’s wielding with that microphone in her hands, and in Tennessee Whiskey, we’re forced to come along for the ride in what is my personal choice for breakout single of the year.
Lynne Taylor Donovan is a name that you should get used to hearing if you’re keen on the Top 40, because not only does her latest song have her riding high and hard against the establish hierarchy of the Billboard Charts, but the potential content that she’s clearly teasing us with in this latest effort is too exciting to look away from.
Lynne articulately describes the day turning to night and the transformation of personalities that come along with the darkness. We come alive with her, animalistic in our adventurous drive to get out and connect with the night, and the tension is going to keep building until we reach our goal, one way or another.
Her swaggering verse against synthesized beats that tower over us like giants are hard to keep up with if you don’t have the constitution of a hardcore pop fan, but if you’re someone who appreciates the indulgence of super pop, then this is right up your alley.
Artists like Lynne Taylor Donovan are the reason that pop music never gets stale and constantly changes with the times that we live in. She keeps alive the relevancy of thick beats that shake the ground beneath us and invite us to leave our inhibitions where we found them and embrace all of the energy that the night has in store for us..
I cannot wait to hear what she has in store for us next, and with the year far from being over, I hope she shares at least a couple of more cuts from her forthcoming full length album that I can only imagine is already in the works as I write this article.
