Caitlin Rushing – "Mexico"
Updated: Jul 14
Review by Brandon Watts & Staff
Caitlin Rushing’s “Mexico” is a fun, playful anthem for all those celebrating their independence and newfound happiness in their single lives. "Mexico" is more than a vacation destination, and it's more than a song - it's a declaration of freedom from toxic relationships.
Rich, a Capella harmonies open the track before a warbling organ melodically transitions into a bouncy guitar arrangement. Caitlin’s vocals grace the track with a glimmering, bright timbre that soothes listeners as she sings,
“I’m in the kitchen making tacos in my gym clothes I don’t need tequila I’ve got red wine and the radio I could use the time but I don’t need a man to take me to Mexico.”
Continuing the catchy motif of the verse, the instrumental arrangement picks up with thick bass and steady percussion with a snappy snare as she bolsters her vocals with indulgent harmony. Progressing into the chorus, Caitlin switches up to a punchy, rhythmic melody that leaves a lasting impression. The production by Grammy artist/songwriter Billy Smiley sets just the right mood.
“Mexico” is the perfect song to get you into a feel-good summer vibe, kick off your vacation, or get your mind in a good place after a break-up. Caitlin's lyrical cleverness and insight are priceless. Her voice will make you feel as though you have a new friend, and her song, "Mexico", will turn your blues into a warm, new day. Pick up "Mexico" and let the song's great message and music recharge your spirit.
