The song itself is about a couple sharing what kind of love they have. The chorus is extremely catchy and finds the couple comparing their love to driving on an “open highway” and not knowing what they’re going to find. Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott take turns with the vocal leads on this duet style song and prove once again how their voices compliment each other. Add Dave Haywood’s harmony vocals and you have a recipe for an amazing vocal performance by a group.
With uptempo songs in high demand during the summer, it’s no wonder this song was chosen as the third single from the trio’s recent album. However, even though it’s a great song, I wonder why they didn’t go with “Perfect Day” or even “Love This Pain” as singles. Both would be instant hits at radio, but with their success, it’s hard to think anything they release won’t be a smash.
It’s been awesome to see how far Lady A has come in such a short time. I remember seeing them perform for the first time in a local high school auditorium and now they are seemingly on top of the country music world. Considering their recent success at radio, it’ll be a big surprise if this song doesn’t reach the top of the charts.
