A Goofy State Of Contentment

2011 Country Thunder Wisconsin -  Day 3

[photogallerylink id=59737 align=right] [lastfm link_type=""]Kenny Chesney[/lastfm] may be called the [lastfm link_type=""]Jimmy Buffett [/lastfm]of country music but that title may serve [lastfm link_type=""]Neal McCoy[/lastfm] a little better. Neil’s new single, ‘A-OK,’ sets the stage for the country veteran to find a new way to describe a goofy state of contentment.

It’s a style that’s fit McCoy throughout his entire career.  If you remember happy hits like ’Wink,’ ‘The Shake’ and ‘Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On’ — then you’ll know what I mean when I say that McCoy’s first single from his 12th studio album is aimed at putting you in a good mood.  Those who call the song corny are most in need of the advice he offers during the chorus of ‘A-OK.’

Oh, oh it’s all all right / Everybody’s got a get loose sometimes / If you’re uptight / Better let it unwind / It’s all right, it’s all right / Oh, oh it’s OK / Save your troubles for another day / Put a big ol’ smile back on your face / It looks to me like it’s gonna’ be A-O, A-O, A-OK.”

[lastfm link_type=""]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=""]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm], wait a minute, didn’t Neal sing at their wedding?  Well anyway the two produced McCoy’s upcoming album ‘XII’ and both sing backing vocals on ‘A-OK.’ Warning: Listening to this song a second time will result in singing it all week long. That’s not the worst thing that could happen.
