“Things that Change”, the latest release from Alabama native Megan McMillan, is a mix of simple stories about everyday life struggles, powerful wordplay on lyrics, and sweet southern traditional melodies. Once again producer Shawn Byrne holds up his end of the bargain with all the punch and clarity we have come to expect.
Listeners will have a new outlook on “Freedom” as well as a new understanding for “Beautiful Pain”. The undeniably relatable title track “Things that Change” certainly hits home because as the world constantly changes we are all guilty of chasing Things That Change.
With reminders of a young Loretta Lynn and remanence of Bobbie Gentry, “Things that Change” is truthful with a hint of vengeance and is certainly Megan’s best work to date. The album is everything a country record should be.
