Missing This

Mike Sudhalter  |  May 1, 2008

I've never been a huge fan of Trace Adkins since he became a superstar. I loved his debut album, "Dreamin' Out Loud," but his new No. 1 hit caught me by surprise, "You're Gonna Miss This." I love how the song talks about not rushing through life and trying to enjoy things. Looking back at the last 10 years, I can definitely relate to it. In high school, I couldn't wait to get out of Massachusetts, graduate college, etc. Now, I look back and really miss those good ole days. Not that these days aren't great, because they are. But I'm trying to enjoy and cherish them more than I did 10 years ago.

Speaking of artists I wasn't crazy about, Nashville Star contestant Joshua Stevens. He has a new song called "Rock and Roll and Pensacola," which I think is great. He's able to tie memories around a summer romance, a Van Halen concert and the summer beach atmosphere of a north Florida city.

Who would have thought that Billy Ray Cyrus would have become anything but a punchline? His daughter, Miley Cyrus' success has made him relevant again. Interestingly, the younger Cyrus resembles her mother, Tish.

Did anyone check out Martina McBride's first live album, released this week? I liked hearing the powerhouse vocalist belt out a cover of Pat Benatar's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot."

I think "Better Than A Memory" will end up being one of Kenny Chesney's biggest hits; it just has that potential to be such a big song for an artist who's career has skyrocketed since 1999.
