Brand New Girlfriend by Steve Holy on Apple Music

13 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Country singer Steve Holy took six years to finish his sophomore album, but for fans of his richly tenor toned vocals, the wait was worth it. Brand New Girlfriend isn't a departure from 2000's Blue Moon. Holy charges out of the gate with a sidesplitting title track that blends boozy honky-tonk twang with a line-dance friendly rhythm and hilarious lyrics making for a memorable hit giving Holy his second Number One single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. "Come On Rain" downshifts to remind folks that Holy can belt out ballads like he was born to play the heartstrings. "A Cliff In Colorado" is another incredibly moving ballad with an engrossing narrative about a love so strong between two people that it still thrives in the afterlife. He humorously explores life's ongoing battles of the sexes with the catchy "Men Buy The Drinks (Girls Call the Shots)," but it's his cover of "All for The Love of Sunshine" that makes for the best of the two bonus tracks included here. If the song sounds familiar, consider yourself old school – Hank Williams Jr. had a hit with it in 1970.

About Steve Holy

Born and raised in Dallas, TX, country vocalist Steve Holy was the youngest of eight children and entertained his grade school classmates with his imitations of Conway Twitty. At 19, he auditioned for the local Mesquite Opry and later earned a spot on Johnny High's Country Music Revue, eventually garnering the revue's Entertainer of the Year award. This brought the attention of legendary country producer Wilbur Rimes (and his daughter LeAnn), who encouraged Holy to shop himself around Nashville. Curb Records signed the young singer/songwriter in 1999 and his Wilbur Rimes-produced album, Blue Moon, was released in late 2000. Brand New Girlfriend arrived in 2006. ~ Zac Johnson
