“There’s always a high and lonesome song that keeps on pushing me along.” This line from the title track and lead single of Meghan Patrick’s latest album Country Made Me Do It is classic country and serves notice that she is determined to revive and carry the traditional torch. Meghan lives hard and loves hard, and her songs reflect this passion. She loves trucks, fishing and hunting, riding horses and a good stiff glass of whiskey, and all of these elements fuel her countrified lyrics. Think the free spirit of Emmylou Harris
from those magical days when she performed with Gram Parsons, combined with the spark and sensuality of Tanya Tucker
, the only female to crack the Outlaw genre, and you begin to have some idea of what Meghan Patrick is all about.
