Professional Review By Zachary Larson
Overall Impression of Randall Gartman’s tune Getting Over You. Opening with a bluesy guitar solo and ballad-like groove, Getting Over You instantly reveals a classic country sound for those of us who are rotten at love. Lyrically, the tune serves as an anthem for the newly single and celebrates the bad behavior needed to mend a broken heart. Randall Gartman commands the microphone with a robust, charismatic twang perfect for country music. He sings with equal parts heart and wit to deliver the song’s somber, yet comedic message. The catchiness of the lyrics is enough to hold listeners’ attention, but not without the strong support from the tune’s rhythm section. Thanks in part to the fine musicianship in the tune, Getting Over You by Randall Gartman offers something for everyone who needs a song to get over a broken heart.
Strongest Point(s): The tune takes a fun approach to getting over someone. The bad behavior, questionable decisions, and overall attitude serve as an enjoyable distraction from the pains of love.
Fans of Classic and Modern Country will enjoy Getting Over You by Randall Gartman

Originally from Deep East Texas and Louisiana, Randall Gartman's sound and writing style are always going to transcend his roots. You can almost feel the mud between your toes as you're tapping your feet to "Alligator Crawl" or maybe even get the feeling of Bourbon Street as you listen to "Cool Like You". It's a simple sound with a catchy beat, but all the words are honest and from the heart. Every song captures a part of Randall's feelings at a particular time and place or reminisces through part of his childhood memory but you will always know it's not another song that has been written, just to satisfy the so-called, "music industry professional"
