Count This Penny – Baby, You
If I didn’t know these two were actually head over heels for each other, I’d be completely convinced that they’ve hurt one another deeply. Such is the power of Count This Penny‘s latest release, “Baby, You.” The song strays a bit from the band’s Appalachian roots and it’s exciting to hear them go in a new direction. The hallmarks of their sound are still there (Amanda’s bowl-you-over voice and impeccable phrasing, Allen’s perfect harmony and quiet intensity), but there’s something in the songwriting that’s been untapped until now. As people the Rigells have convinced me that true love is real, and as artists they’ve shown me the reality of being truly heartbroken.
