I’ve been dreading writing a review for a female artist for awhile. Something about being able to relate my thoughts to a female point of view had made me hesitant. Charla Corn is a different story. For years now, Charla has been making excellent music that both males and females can relate to.
Charla recently released her new album, “Stella”. The lead off song, “Done”, does a great job of immediately hooking the listener into the album. Everyone has their breaking point when enough is enough and Charla belts out a break up anthem that clearly establishes that she’s had too much and is moving on.
Charla refers to her song “Chris Knight” as the red dirt version of Taylor Swift’s “Tim McGraw”. It’s evident however, that not only is Chris Knight more talented than McGraw, but that Taylor Swift can’t hold a candle to power that Charla Corn evokes in this amazing song about the enormous effect that music has on relationships.
I particularly like “Love Me Like Stole Me” because it is a fiery song that shows an aggressive and crazy side that I, like most men, find very attractive in a woman. Many women are afraid to make this side of them known to the public, but Charla does an amazing job of exhibiting this powerful characteristic.
“Jesus, Daddy, and You” is a ballad that any country girl can make their own. As the song states, “there are three kinds of love” and in the minds of most women, nothing is more powerful than the love from those three men.
“Stella” has made writing a female review a lot easier than I thought. Whether it’s the energy that this album generates or the emotional undertones in every song, I’m not sure, but this album has earned a top spot in my collection.
