Single Review: Cam’s “Burning House”

Rating: 8/10

“Burning House” is the second single off Cam’s EP “Welcome to Cam Country.” She impressed us with her debut, “My Mistake,” and Bobby Bones is supporting “Burning House” with On the Verge, the program that is largely responsible for the atrocity that is Sam Hunt. This time, at least, he is backing a decent artist.

“Burning House” is about a love going up in flames. The song is entirely acoustic, with only guitars, pianos, and violins. It makes it easy to just listen to the lyrics, something that has been lost in country.

Having said that, I don’t necessarily think the lyrics are great. They are good, but there is no real hook. Cam sings,

I had a dream about a burning house,
You were stuck inside, I couldn’t get you out
Lay beside you, and I pulled you close
And the two of us went up in smoke.

I do like the song, I’m just not sure people will like it, even if Bobby Bones does promote it. However, even though I am not sold on the song yet, I am sold on Cam, and I can’t wait to hear more from her.
