Randall King is kickin’ off 2024 with a honky tonk twanger. Just what the doctor ordered.
“Coulda Been Love” makes you want to fire up the jukebox, boot scoot, and boogie on the dance floor all night. Truly the recipe for a timeless country music song, and King’s quick and catchy vocals paired with the traditional melody are on point during this single.
“What was I thinkin’ dropping down TONK like this!”
The lyrics follow the tale of a man who was approached to dance while at a bar, and he turned her away as he doesn’t dance. As the woman walks away, he starts kicking himself, thinking about how he might have mistakenly not taken her for a spin on the dance floor. Did he miss the love of his life or just a quick dance at the bar? He ponders what could have been, and the quick-paced tune matches the questions that race through his head.
“Wish I’d got her name, I could probably find her number Let her get away, and it coulda been love This old heart ain’t gettin’ any younger What was I thinkin’? It coulda been love…”
While King is wondering if it “Coulda Been Love” in the lyrics, I know that listeners will love this single. He hit the nail on the head with this track.
Give it a listen.
King is only a few short weeks away from dropping his next album, Into The Neon, which turns back the clock and takes listeners back to the roots of country music. With influences from the greats like George Strait, Keith Whitley, and more, he is putting a modern twist on the classic honky tonk sound throughout the eighteen tracks the album will house.
“You grow wiser with age, you grow wiser while you’re working and experiencing life, and I feel like I have a deeper understanding of what my music really is. We’re moving into the neon era of country music. The pendulum is swinging, and you’re watching it happen… Now I just hope people get their mind blown.”
The album will be available everywhere on January 26th, and from the singles he has released thus far, Into The Neon seems like it will be a gem of an album.
