Demo of the Week: “King of the Bar”
Written By: Emily Landis, Cameron Bedell, Hannah Ellis
Vibe: Sassy, smart, beachy
Key Lyrics: “Boy you don’t own this place got stock in it / But you stake your claim like you pay the rent / The only crown’s in your cup / Tell me who do you think you are / Who died and made you king of the bar?”
Could Be A Good Fit For: Kelsea Ballerini, Lauren Alaina, Maren Morris, Danielle Bradbery
X Factor: The lyrics serve as a creative, well-executed dig at everyone’s least favorite bar patron, and the island-appropriate rhythm and instrumentation transplant the song from a Nashville writing room to a beachside tiki hut.
