A Review of “Tell Me” by Jacob Bryant

When it comes to male voices in country music, it doesn’t get much better than Jacob Bryant. And in case that isn’t laid out enough for us on his 2019 full-length debut, Practice What I Preach, the Georgia bred singer-songwriter is about to further cement his spot in the genre and blow everyone away with the release of his latest single that drops on Friday, February 21st.

Co-written by Bryant, Wyatt McCubbin and Jami Grooms, “Tell Me” is everything that country music fans – both new and old – have been looking for. And thanks to Bryant’s matchless musical style, even non-country fans will have plenty of reasons to love this new song. The dream team that is Bryant, McCubbin and Grooms, deliver the gut-wrenching reality of agonizing over not knowing where one’s relationship status lies and the pain that comes from waiting and wondering. In the end, though, the heartbreaking truth of the matter is that even the answer we don’t want is better than no answer at all, and this trio of gifted songwriters tackle that head on with lyrics like, “Maybe I don’t wanna know the answer, but just tell me where I fall/baby, tell me” and “But don’t keep me waiting or wondering if I’m wrong/baby, tell me you’re gone.”

Bryant’s vocals are filled with a burning passion and raw emotion that is as authentic as that southern accent of his, and like a good whiskey leaves you coming back for glass after glass. Whether you’re a fan of Bryant’s previous releases or this is your first introduction to the “Pour Whiskey On My Grave” singer, I can assure you that “Tell Me” will not disappoint and leave you hitting that repeat button. This is the song country radio needs right now.

"MADD" Manda Walsh
Chicago native and Saint Xavier University alum (class of 2007), Amanda Walsh is an aspiring journalist with a strong passion for music and longtime love of writing. While in college, she spent her time volunteering as a radio DJ, working as the station’s Music Director, and serving as a regular contributing writer for the campus newspaper where she combined her love for music and writing. Between attending multiple concerts a month all over the city, interviewing various bands both in and out of the studio, and introducing her friends and show listeners to new artists (both local and national acts), it was during this time that Amanda really discovered her niche. Whether listening alone with her headphones or experiencing it live in person, music has always been Amanda’s safe haven and more like a religion, with concerts feeling more like going to church. Today the number of artist interviews under her belt continues to grow, as she strives to break new and up and coming artists before other outlets. She also continues to attend as many concerts as her bank account will allow. Her musical tastes range from “OMG you have to hear this” to “please don’t judge me,” and she is the person you want on your team in music trivia. She is also an avid enthusiast of the paranormal and anything in the realm of horror or the creepy and unnerving. With that said, she loves Halloween more than a normal person probably should and has a fascination with cemeteries. Aside from music and concerts, Amanda also enjoys reading, shopping and epic adventures. She's a sucker for a good mystery and anything acoustic. When she was a kid she wanted to be Nancy Drew when she grew up. At the end of the day, if she had to describe herself with a song lyric it would be this – “I’m somewhere in between what is real and just a dream.”
