You might be unfamiliar with 21 year old Country Artist Mary Heather Hickman, but her sound will soon have you wishing you had heard of her before. She does have a classic country sound to her voice, but she combines it with modern music and beats to blend both traditional and modern listeners. She has a vibe similar to Kacey Musgraves, and isn’t afraid about singing about her mistakes.
“Dial” offers some advice on not drinking and then calling up an ex boyfriend… that is a recipe for disaster.
Don’t drink and dial / You’ll call up your ex / And wake up the next morning / Hungover with regret / Take my advice / It ain’t worth the rush / Throw your phone out the window / When you feel that buzz
Hickman is currently writing and collaborating with songwriters in Nashville. She told Variety Beat the inspiration behind her song “Dial”
I think people can connect with ‘Dial’ because it’s a song that we all see ourselves in. Most people can relate to having a drink or two and calling or texting an ex boyfriend, and then regretting it the next morning. I wrote this song after a particularly funny incident with a friend. She does know she was the inspiration for this song and we laugh about it to this day.
