Rolling Stone Country: 10 Best Country Songs Of The Week
Country up-and-comer Abi arrives with the catchy and heartfelt "A Day Without." At first glance, it's a perfect breakup anthem, but its meaning is much deeper for Abi, who recently lost her father. Surging with a pop beat, "A Day Without," co-written by Andrew Dorff, Jimmy Robbins and Lucie Silvas, spotlights the Texas native's emotive vocals that earned her a spot on tour with Jesse McCartney, Kelly Clarkson and Pentatonix. At times, the song is touchingly mournful, but it closes with a poetic moment of hope: "a day without the sun would have me pretty bummed / but I would learn to love the moon." S.S.
