FEATURED SONG: Kasey Chambers – “Little Bird”

Kasey Chambers

Kasey Chambers

Her words here in this single’s chorus belie just how clearly she’s hoping this could be the little single that breaks her music into the American mainstream. But I’ll be damned if “Little Bird” isn’t one of Kasey Chambers’ sweetest, most addictive melodies to come out in her already storied career. The song is country music at its most pure, with a pop hook that dances on the tongue as you find yourself singing along the first time through. “Little Bird” is a gem worthy of spreading far and wide. Hopefully people will actually get to hear it.

The album, also titled Little Bird, is Chambers’ sixth full-length effort,  and if this helps bring back “honest to God country music” to the radio-waves, as critic Alexey Eremenko wrote at AllMusic, then more power to her. Chambers is the little songwriter who could, and she’s earned every bit of her success.
