Sarah Buxton, "Outside My Window"

Often new artists blend in a little too well to meet country radio's expectations and then fail to stand out, but Sarah Buxton is like a breath of fresh air. She's got tons of personality and a thoroughly engaging voice. It's warm and textured -- equally capable of tender ballads and sassy, up-tempo tunes like this new single, "Outside My Window." Buxton penned the tune with veteran hitmakers Victoria Shaw, Gary Burr and Mark Hudson, and it's a breezy celebration of life's best moments. "A good laugh, a warm bath, and a beautiful song you can sing along to." she neatly sums up. Buxton handles the production and brings all the elements together cohesively. There's even a "la-la-la-la-la-la" singalong that's sure to make listeners want to join in. --Debroah Evans Price
