I have never been a huge fan of American Idol. Take it or leave it, it’s not a show that I have felt any serious pull to go out of my way to watch. That said, it is neither a show a get twitchy about if I land on it (if there’s actually someone performing). I will say that I do have several items from Idol alumni in my library, so while I may not be a huge fan of the show itself I can appreciate the talent they find.
Which brings us to this week’s selection. Phillip Phillips was the winner of the 2012 season, and this is his lead single. It smacks a little of David Gray or Dave Matthews, which for me is a good thing, and the more I have been hearing it on the radio since the beginning of December the more it’s grown on me.
