From the first time we spoke to Renee Blair for a Swag Spotlight feature, we knew she had something special. Her St. Louis roots shine brightly through her music and today, she released two brand new songs, “Summadat” and “Wearin’ It Well”. Both tracks sonically channel the modern country vibe, with pop influences. As listeners gear up for another warm weekend across the country, the former is “easy, breezy” and perfect to blast with your windows down. The latter is empowering, an almost fake-it-til-you-make-it moment, a story about a broken heart powering through. “Wearin’ It Well” is for anyone who felt like staying home in sweats crying over a situation but decided to live their life instead.
“I’ve got my Covergirl coverin’ up the tears that I’ve cried / I’ve got a stranger dancin’ with his hands on your favorite Levis / I’ve got a heart still broken I’ve been going through hell but tonight, I’m going out and I’m wearin’ it, wearin’ it well”
“I think it is a huge testament to where music is right now, it’s becoming very cross-genre. I think it’s awesome,” she says of one of her main influences growing up, Nelly working with Florida Georgia Line. “The fans are the best judgment, they just like good music and they don’t care what you call it and I think it is a great way to just bring everyone together.” Blair, who co-wrote both tracks continues to change the game, releasing smartly written lyrics and tracks that beg for repeat spins.
Check out more from Renee Blair in the video below when we caught up with her for a Live Swag Session back in January 2019, where she performed “Better Off”, “Me Tonight” and chatted about her influences, songwriting, and future plans.
