The songs by female artists that get popular these days, with the exception of Cam and "Burning House" are the songs that are bold, brash, and confident. Look at the last few No. 1's by female artists (which is terribly few.) There's Kelsea Ballerini with "Love Me Like You Mean It," the in-your-face confident girl power jam, Carrie Underwood with "Little Toy Guns," the angry peace building rocker, and "Girl in A Country Song" by Maddie & Tae one of the most talked about songs of this last year. There aren't really any middle of the road love songs going No. 1 anymore, at least for women. Gibson seems ready to fill that role. Love is a big topic for her musically, and she could definitely make those kind of songs big again with the sugary pop country outer covering of this track. This song is the perfect candidate for her break out song, and based on its sound, could end up being a big hit in Canada, and in the US as well.
