Demo of the Week: “Lottery Tickets”
Writers: Parker Welling, Adam James, Emily Hackett
Vibe: Upbeat, traditional country sound with a healthy dose of attitude
Key lyrics: “Scratched off and tossed out a couple of losers / But I could still hit it big in the future / With a good man getting down on one knee / If someones gonna get it might as well be me.”
Could be a good fit for: Aubrie Sellers, Sara Evans, Maddie & Tae
X factor: The main character’s frustration and cynicism toward romance are masked with quasi-humorous plays on the “lottery” theme. The rhythm feels authentically country, while the lyrics are fresh and creative.
