“Summertime” opens with calming melodies, and it is juxtaposed with their smooth, soothing vocals, where the listener can slightly recall such artists as Don Henley meets Jimmy Buffett. It has a nonchalant and mellow vibe to it, and it ought to be enjoyed for its beauty and simplicity.
Throughout their career in the music business, The Beasley Brothers were afforded the opportunity to share the stage with national acts as Kansas and Ronnie McDowell. They have played a variety of different events including large music festivals and intimate throughout the southeast. Four years ago, they were ranked in the “15 North Alabama Musicians To Watch,” and judging from “Summertime” that statement still holds true to this day.
Overall, “Summertime” by The Beasley Brothers is a keeper. There is something comforting about its melody that makes it difficult to get out of the listener’s head. It is recommended for fans of such groups as The Eagles, The Oak Ridge Boys, and The Avett Brothers. “Summertime” garners an A rating.
