Carter Faith "The Devil's Still Down in Georgia" Song Review

Rising talent Carter Faith released a new song titled "The Devil's Still Down in Georgia" on Friday, May 27th. As part of Spotify's Fresh Finds, the song is being released exclusively with the streaming service.

The singer-songwriter has often been compared to artists like Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift. Faith is able to combine her emotive lyricism and her genre-bending aesthetic into one unique package. She was named to Spotify's Hot Country Artists to Watch for 2022 and has consistently sold-out shows at the legendary Ryman auditorium. Faith's past singles have included "Leaving Tennessee" and "Sinners In A Small Town." In total, Faith's music has been streamed over 30 million times.


"The Devil's Still In Georgia" is of course inspired by the iconic song "Devil Went Down To Georgia" by Charlie Daniels. Faith's vocals are mesmerizing and take the listener through every word she croons. The track picks up steam by the time the chorus kicks in. It's mysterious and spellbinding, a nice redirection from the music that is currently in the mainstream.

While this song might be inspired by a classic hit, this song is entirely Faith. Her writing represents the singer-songwriter style she has so brilliantly crafted for herself. "Don't go west of Carolina, you'll make your bed in Hell / Don't go south of Tennessee, there's poison in that well / Well, no, Heaven doesn't feel as hot, once you've got a taste of fire / Ain't no signs to warn you, he's alive and well / Yeah, the devil's still down in Georgia."
