A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this song is family-friendly country music at its best, a simple song about being someone's partner. There's not a speck of sex or anything inappropriate for kids, other than a metaphorical mention of wine and whiskey, so it's OK for most ages.
What's the story?
"HONEY BEE" is a simple, sweet, somewhat cliched country tune that lacks the genre's stereotypical reliance on heartache or references to trains, drinkin', or Momma. The single debuted on the American Country Music awards, and shot up the digital charts almost immediately.
Is it any good?
Country music lovers will fall all over themselves for this song -- a hokey-to-the-point-of-adorable tune that could be a guy's secret weapon to get the girl. With lyrics that croon, "You be my glass of wine, I'll be your shot of whiskey, You be my sunny day, I'll be your shade tree," it's hard not to fall in love with Blake Shelton, let alone "Honey Bee." And old-school country fans will love the references to legends like Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty.
