Summer time can go by way too fast, so I wanted to play these songs by Lady Antebellum, Conway Twitty and Dierks Bentley about slowing things down. I hope you enjoy them and slow down a little to enjoy the rest of your summer.
Lady Antebellum’s “Slow Down Sister” was on their 2008 debut self-titled album ‘Lady Antebellum.’ It was written by Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, Victoria Shaw, and Jason “Slim” Gambill, but was never released as a single to radio.
Conway Twitty’s “Slow Hand” was written by John Bettis and Michael Clark. It was originally recorded by The Pointer Sisters in 1981. In 1982, Conway’s version topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart for two weeks that June, and was his last multi-week No. 1 song.
Dierks Bentley’s “Settle for a Slowdown” was released in January 2006 as the third and final single from his second studio album, ‘Modern Day Drifter.’ The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, becoming Bentley’s third No. 1 single. The hit was written by Dierks with Brett Beavers and Tony Martin.
If you’re fishing for three great country songs, CMM is the place to catch them next Tuesday.
