Song Review - Jamie Floyd - "The People You Knew" (Song of the Year Candidate)

Artist: Jamie Floyd
Song: "The People You Knew"
Album: Sunshine & Rainbows
Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

You may not know this fantastic songwriter, but you do know her work. Jamie is the pen behind Ashley Monroe's "The Blade." Floyd released a terrific EP earlier this year entitled Sunshine & Rainbows and this powerful song ranks as its very best. She took her very real heartache and turned it into a compassionate message of understanding and observation. “It’s important to realize that you are not the only one who hurts this much," she told The lyric is painfully open: 'I don't even know where you are now/And you don't know what I'm thinking/Or what I've been through without you/We don't even know what we're missing/We let go but we didn't mean to/Oh when the people you know/Become the people you knew.' This blistering after-breakup song has all of the substance that should put Nashville on notice that they have a Lori McKenna-type star in the making.
