ToC Critic’s Pick: Aubrie Sellers, ‘Liar, Liar’ [Listen]
Aubrie Sellers' "Liar Liar" is the stormiest country song since Garth Brooks sang about thunder. The country newcomer and Taste of Country RISER is a tempest hanging just on the edge of the horizon that keeps inching closer.
Guitar and steel are the gales and lightning that make this Sellers, Brandy Clark and Jessie Jo Dillon written song come to life. The singer owns any room her new track from New City Blues is played in. Throughout the first verse and chorus, she's almost summoning a rage that stays quelled, but remains present to the very end.
The 26-year-old daughter of Lee Ann Womack is an original who's more dynamic than most that have been singing and writing for twice as long. Almost all her songs bring darkness to the stage. "Liar Liar" is packed with mystery and intrigue that hooks you immediately. It's not an earworm, but that's not to say her story and melody won't stick with you.
Did You Know?: Aubrie Sellers grew up with musicians but battled intense stage fright until fairly recently. She's currently on tour with Miranda Lambert.

Bet You Can’t Look Away from Aubrie Sellers Singing “My Babe”
Aubrie Sellers, "Liar, Liar" Lyrics:
You never felt this way / Yeah, you never fall this far / You never believed in love at first sight / Until tonight when I walked in this bar.
Liar, liar / Womanizer / Bargain bin, romanticizer / Spin your web just like a spider does / Pants on fire / Flames get higher /Liar, liar.
You don't play games / Don't mind sleeping alone / That waitress who just winked at you / Is just some crazy girl you used to know.
Some might say that you're no good for nothing / But I can tell right now you're good at something.
