Tim Hicks: The Worst Kind feat. Lindsay Ell

By Kerry Doole

Tim Hicks - "The Worst Kind feat. Lindsay Ell"  (Open Road Recordings): This track, released to radio on Wednesday, pairs two strong Canadian country talents. Hicks is a platinum-seller with a string of radio hits, while the fast-rising Ell has earned multiple nominations for the upcoming CCMA Awards.


On this, the latest single from Hicks' recent album New Tattoo, the pair trade verses and their vocal harmonies mesh sweetly on a tune that tells a post-breakup tale. Sample lyrics: "It's the pain of a bad goodbye .. it's the wondering what could've been that keeps me up at night." Soaring guitar work helps nail the sentiments.
