There is no denying the impact of NBC’s The Voice on country music. The successful program has rebooted the music careers of Cassadee Pope and Meghan Linsey and has launched the careers of Danielle Bradbery, RaeLynn, Craig Wayne Boyd, and The Swon Brothers to name a few. It’s safe to say that we can hopefully now add mother/daughter duo 2Steel Girls to that list.
While they didn’t make it past the Season 3 Battle Round vs. Gracia Harrison (who incidentally has new music on the way), many, including their coach Blake Shelton confirmed that 2Steel Girls had a “bright future in country music.”
After launching a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014 (full disclosure: this writer happily supported it and cannot wait to add the signed CD jacket to his wall), 2Steel Girls, comprised of mom Allison Steel and daughter Krystal Steel, have just released their debut single “Red White & Blue Girls.” Upon listening to the effervescent country pop song, I am happy to say Shelton was spot on in his assessment.
There’s no doubt about it, “Red White & Blue Girls” is a summery ray of sunshine. The song melds old school country harmonies with pop-country’s penchant for Summer-time themes like driving down dirt roads, turning the night on, boys chasing girls, bonfires, Friday nights…it’s all ‘Merica.
“Red White & Blue Girls” is an intriguing first look into what this talented duo is capable of and I for one am certainly interested in hearing what 2Steel Girls deliver in the future.
