The latest release from Nashville rising star Matty Ride exceeded our expectations. It encompasses his infamous tongue-in-cheek lyricism and jazzy pop instrumentals. As catchy as ever, “Sugar on the Side” is guaranteed to be stuck in your head.
Matty often shares how he grew up surrounded by the greats such as Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. This track is no different. One of the things Ride loved most about that time is how “songs back in the day had a way of ‘saying it, without quite saying it’” and this is exactly what Matty encompasses in “Sugar on the Side.” Did you catch his hidden meaning? Let us know in the comments.
