Reckless Kelly vs. Eli Young Band – Texas Red Dirt Rumble
Reckless Kelly are off to a good start entering week two of Taste of Country’s new Texas Red Dirt Rumble competition, but will they be able to stand up to Eli Young Band? Last week, Reckless Kelly’s ‘Good Luck and True Love’ took out Kevin Fowler‘s ‘That Girl’ three to one — a pretty big feat. Now, it’s time to tackle EYB’s ‘Crazy Girl,’ which hit No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles chart just this week.
Reckless Kelly’s ‘Good Luck and True Love’ tells the sad tale of a one night stand — a non-committal evening that results in being alone once again. But that’s no big deal. The band of brothers doesn’t believe in true love anyway, and they won’t let one pretty girl’s absence get them down because there will undoubtedly be more to follow.
For Eli Young Band, ‘Crazy Girl’ is the one — the only woman in sight, forever, despite her slightly psychotic tendencies. She’s insecure and constantly questions the strength of their relationship, especially when arguments arise, but as frontman Mike Eli assures her, he’s happily stuck with her. After all, the smartest thing he ever did was make her all his.
So, which will song will win this week? Check out reigning champion Reckless Kelly’s ‘Good Luck and True Love’ and see how it compares, in your opinion, to Eli Young Band’s ‘Crazy Girl.’ Are you a believer in gone with the wind, or true love through thick and thin?
