From the opening strains of Danielle Peck’s new single, “Kiss Me Like You Miss Me,” it’s clear that this isn’t your typical modern female country song. In fact, with its twangy banjo, instrumentation and punchy backing vocals, it feels like you’re being transported back in time to the heyday of country. It may be a new song, but it’s more of a nod to the Jo Dees and Terris of country music than it is to the Cassadees and Carries. And that’s okay. Like another Peck song, “Kiss Me on the Mouth,” she clearly shines when she uses her lips to sing about…well, lips. What else is one to do with a last name like Peck?
Her voice is mature and gritty, showing a depth of soul currently missing from much of today’s current country scene. The song is playful and upbeat, ending with a quirky spoken invitation for “just a peck” combined with a perfectly-timed “mwah.”
While “Kiss Me Like You Miss Me” doesn’t go for radio adds til May, it’s a must-have for anyone who appreciates a good, ol’ fashioned female country song.
And #CMchat congratulates Danielle on her recent engagement to Josh Smith, “Here’s to Finding a Good Man”
