Colin Stough possesses a voice that can make mountains crumble and the Red Sea part. Finding himself lost in his tears, Stough attempts to make sense of his heartache with a new song. “Lonely Hour” quakes from deep down inside, the emotion dripping from his lips like a torrential downpour. “Guess when you left me, I just wasn’t ready to pay what it costs,” he weeps. He colors his performance with the sort of emotional power you just can’t teach. He takes your heart in his hands and squeezes. It’s that potent and razor-sharp. It has all the hallmarks of a classic country tune. If there’s any justice in the world, it’ll become a smash hit.
