Lucy Hale - "You Sound Good to Me" Single Review

Anyone who knows me knows that Lucy Hale is one of my female crushes, and I’ve been anxiously anticipating her first music single.  I’m not gonna lie: it took me by surprise because I was not expecting a country single.  When I saw her in Another Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song I thought she’d be geared toward pop music.  Usually I’m not a big fan of country, but I love Lucy so I gave it a listen.  I like it…for a country single.  It’s catchy – already got the melody stuck in my head – and I love the overarching metaphor for a guy being like a song that “sounds good to me.”  One of the things I listen for vocally is an outstanding vocal run that usually occurs in the last chorus, but I was a little let down because I didn’t hear anything.  Overall, Lucy sounds like a countrified version of Victoria Justice minus the crazy vocals.  As far as music goes, just like the music video (below), it’s a song you can jam to while cruising down a bare and windy road.

“You Sound Good to Me” is available for purchase and download on iTunes, which I just did, and is already #1 on the country charts!  Check it out!
