To be honest, before we received a preview copy of Jennifer Nettles’ new album, Playing With Fire, we really didn’t know much about her.
We recognized her name, but that was about it.
Then we clicked on the first track, which shares the album’s title, and decided our day needed to get a little country-funked up. It’s twangier than we typically like, but there’s plenty of fun to be had with many of her sassiest tracks. A second listen solidified our admiration.
Ballad lovers (and other people with emotions) will appreciate the lead single, “Unlove You” (above), they’re just not our thing.
So if you’re a country fan, this is right in your wagon wheelhouse. And if you’re not, it’s possible you might become a convert like us.
We’re just bummed we can’t find our Bitmoji in a cowboy hat.
