Some of the best country songs are the simplest--hummable, strummable, you just can't get them out of your head. Take, for instance, "Highway" from Venice, California duo [mp3com-artist]Neonwest[/mp3com-artist]. Fronted by songwriters Lee Lucas and Rick Lucas, Neonwest is the country-music winner in Mp3.com's recent song contest in partnership with YouNow.com. "I know there's a sweet place waiting for me," Lee sings on "Highway," a catchy song marked by urgent guitar lines and a sturdy, road-tested rhythm. In their YouNow bio they list Jason Aldean and Keith Urban as favorite artists, but also mention Bob Dylan and Paramore--and you can hear that mix of modern rock, introspective writing, dreams, ambition, and down-home twang right between the ditches of this "Highway."
