After floundering these past few years trying to find success as a pop star and movie star in Hollywood, Jessica Simpson has decided to see if she can’t get some love from Nashville. The singer is releasing a country album and here’s the first listen to “Come on Over,” an upbeat tune in which she tells her lover to leave on the “Baseball cap and torn up jeans/a pair of flip flops on your feet” and just come on over so they can get to canoodling.
Simpson told Billboard last December, “I am a country girl. I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to. I always wanted to make a country album, but I wanted to wait until the time was right.”
Granted, after listening to the song, it seems to me as if the genre is a good fit for Jess, but I don’t know how well country fans will take to her treating them like her Plan B.
