New York pop and country singer/songwriter Heidi Merrill (from Nebraska) has released her country-fusion single “Cornhusker Strong” which is a heartfelt hymn that celebrates her State of Origin and also her unwavering love for her football team [the Cornhuskers.]
We had a listen:
Merrill’s song [which she co-wrote with Jeff Cohen (Sugarland, The Band Perry) and Tamara Stewart] has some supremely confident guitar-work and — naturally — lots of shout-out moments and an uplifting ‘n’ generous chorus.
The rhythm slugs and shuffles and the warming vocal is gold-sun jaunty and shamelessly optimistic.
For fans of Shania Twain or Martina McBride…
So go grab some Big Red!!
