Sarah Buxton - Space
By: Matt Bjorke
To most country music fans, Sarah Buxton is an unknown quantity. Anyone that reads liner notes will have noticed her as a co-writer, with Dave Berg, of Keith Urban’s hit single “Stupid Boy.” Now, she’s back a new single written with Lari White and Chuck Cannon.
Have you ever been in a relationship where your partner said they feel suffocated and just wanted some ‘space?’ Ever not understood what that meant? Then you will certainly relate to “Space.” It’s a song that finds Sarah singing to a boyfriend who feels the world closing in due to his fear of commitment and the speed at which the relationship is progressing along. He’s a man who can’t convey his true feelings so he says the short and hurtful way to break-up: “I need space.”
Sarah Buxton has scored a couple of previous Top 40 hit singles on her own but “Space” is by far the best thing she’s released to radio yet. It’s a song that both men and women can relate to and one that is sure to finally break this uniquely voiced singer/songwriter at radio.
