“Shotgun” – Sean McConnell featuring Audra Mae

One of the most unfortunate things about Scotty McCreery’s “Southern Belle” single is that Sean McConnell’s name is attached to it as a co-writer. ¬†“Southern Belle” is a poor representation of McConnell’s talents and normally high quality output, and the song appears to be a total mismatch for McCreery. Quite frankly, both artists are capable of better.

It’s considerably more heartening that McConnell released “Shotgun” as his own single. ¬†Previously featured on ABC’s Nashville (performed by guest star Christina Aguilera), McConnell’s “Shotgun”is a lovely exercise in restraint showcasing the stirring voices of both McConnell and co-writer Audra Mae.
