Is there a better way to recognize the ever-so-popular weekly hashtag holiday Flashback Friday (or #FBF) than sharing some really exciting news from one of Country Music #CMchat’s first One to Watch artists?
Let’s go back in time to the very beginning of CMchatLIVE.com — September 2013, to be exact — when Abbi Scott was named by #CMchat’s Founder, Jessica Northey, as the second EVER One to Watch on the site. Since our humble beginnings, many of our featured artists have gone on to do huge things, and Abbi is no exception.
Fans of Abbi can certainly confirm that this singer-songwriter is one of the most interactive and exciting artists on social media, never going a day without interacting with her wonderfully relentless supporters. Those who follow her know that she has been working hard at Lipscomb University in Nashville and using her time between classes and events to work with some of Music City’s renowned writers and professionals. Fans have been waiting and anticipating a release, knowing that Abbi has spent time in the studio, and this week, a single emerged.
Abbi’s new single “Flying” was written by Fort Worth, Texas group Green River Ordinance and is a perfect fit for the hardworking artist. Similar to Abbi’s persona, the song is void of bells and whistles and is a sweet, honest approach to sharing a message of love. The first of the understated choruses simply croons:
Yeah, we’re flying, we’re flying high. Darling, you look beautiful just flying, your hand in mine. Won’t you come with me tonight?
With obvious classic/traditional country influences and Abbi’s unique voice, happiness pours from the seams of the song. In fact, if you listen closely, you can actually hear the smile on the young singer’s face as she delivers each lyric. That is exactly why the song fits Abbi Scott so very well. Her single, very much like her, is an absolute joy and will leave you smiling too.
