Every now and again, a Country Pop artist with a standout talent will emerge with timeless style and instantaneous appeal, which is exactly what we thought when we caught wind of Kayla Ruby’s single “Never Really Know Somebody”. The track has all of the infectious appeal which was carried by tracks more prominently in the 00’s, but the raw production style isn’t something you hear all too often these days. Yet, the 18-year-old Country star has stuck to her roots using bluesy rhythms and unflinching vocal power to verse the lyrics tackling the plaintive emotion of thinking you know someone only to be left with conflicting memories.
