Sugarland - All I Wanna Do

Sugarland chose the 43rd annual ACM Awards show to debut the first single from their third album. It's catchy but is it what they should be recording?

With their career now established at the superstar level, Sugarland chose the grand stage of the 43rd ACM Awards show to debut their new single "All I Wanna Do." As far as nonsensical summertime singles go, the song is a winner. It has all the hallmarks of a smash radio hit, catchy melody and timeless, ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh chorus. However catchy a chorus and melody are, I somehow expect more from Sugarland. I think the band should have timless lyrics in the verses to go with the melody and chorus.

Yes, I want my cake and to eat it too.

I believe in this band and on some levels, I like this song (it is fun). However, I don't know if something that oozes groovy pop is necessarily the direction I hoped Sugarland would go with their new music, particularly after their strong hit "Stay."
