This week our Song Spotlight falls on a tune by an artist that represents a “first” in his career. For years we’ve known Kristian Bush as the male counterpart of his duo with Jennifer Nettles, “Sugarland.” Together they’ve sold millions of hit records over the years, but not long ago Jennifer announced she would begin working on a solo album, and debuted as a solo act here on CT40 last October with “That Girl.” Now, a year later… Kristian proves that he’s got the stuff to be a solo act as well, and recently debuted on the countdown with his first single.
The song, titled “Trailer Hitch,” was written by Kristian, his brother, Brandon Bush, and Tim Owens, and is a funky, feel good “toe tapper” with a valuable message. The lyric, “I’ve never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch” personifies the notion that you can’t take it with you, and subtly represents the joys of giving over the desire for material things. Produced by Byron Gallimore, Kristian Bush’s “Trailer Hitch” is a clever, catchy tune and from all appearances… his very first single as a solo artist could be a big one. How big? Time will tell, but you can keep track of his progress right here at CT40.com, and by tuning in each weekend to “The Country Top 40.” See you then!
