On the heels of his last single, the chill-inducing, carpe diem anthem, “Slip On By,” Austin Webb has released his follow up single, a much more rowdy tune entitled “Raise ‘Em Up.” In this catchy homage to partying and living it up, Austin sings about all of the benefits of celebrating life and having fun. While this song wouldn’t sound out of place on a Florida-Georgia Line album or a Luke Bryan Spring Break EP (take from that what you will), there’s something endearing about this delightful piece of country fluff.
“A little but of fun never hurt nobody, somebody’s gotta be the life of the party.” Austin reminds us, and I find myself wishing I was on a beach somewhere, sipping something fruity with an umbrella in it. “Raise em up, raise ’em up, raise ’em high.” It’s as much a demand as it is a chorus, and I can only imagine this moment in Austin’s stage show, the audience a sea of beer-lifting fans singing at the top of their lungs.
While “Slip On By” allowed Austin to flex his vocal muscles and show off his deep, introspective side, “Raise ‘Em Up” shows the fun-loving side of his personality. While the track may not change any lives, it will provide a 3 minute and 34 second escape. It may be cold and gray out, but listen below and prepare to raise up your drink, wherever you are.
