Single Review: “One In Every Crowd” by Montgomery Gentry
Ah…nothing like a good old fashion bar patron song from the bar boys of country music, Montgomery gentry. Following up two straight #1 singles, the boys hope to secure both their place as a competitive and top notch act in the genre as well as try to re-emerge as the hillbilly southern rockers their fans have grown to love them for.
“One In Every Crowd” is, in a way, a literal description of each of the two boys separate, but equal personalities. Eddie leads the song through singing about that one guy, or girl, in every crowd who is usually the one to take the risks and to show everyone else how to have a good time. For many reason it turns out that the narrator is usually that person, thus relating both to the duo’s trademark hillbilly spirit and to any of their loyal fan base who will no doubt be singing along.
All in all I rather enjoy this song. Other than the somewhat obnoxious “What Do Ya Think About That”, the last time these boys put out a good party song was in 2003 with “Hell Yeah”. In a genre overloaded with heart-wrenching ballads and deep messages lately, and in a world filled with a little to much negativity for it’s own good, MG picked the right time to release a song that not only provides and attractive beat, catchy lyrics, and acceptable entertainment value, but also brings the mood up and little bit and inspires listeners to stop worrying so much and have a little fun for a change.
