Charles Ellsworth was raised on Mormon hymns and Top 40 country, rejecting those in his teen years for classic and alternative rock. As most of us who were raised on terrible country and later rejected it, he's come back to the sound, though it's not exactly traditional country. His latest single, "Blessed," firmly has an alt-country sound. Sure, there's plenty of steel guitar and twang in "Blessed," but it's one of the more alt-country country songs I've heard in a while. It's a truly interesting and unique sound. It sounds like a familiar kind of country song, while still having a very unique sound all its own.
You can listen to "Blessed" below. Honeysuckle Summer, the upcoming album from Charles Ellsworth, will be out March 5 on Burro Borrocho Records. For more on Charles Ellsworth, check out his website.
