Who is singing this song?

Who does this song I've been hearing on country radio?

It's a female singer who sounds a lot like early Linda Ronstadt. The line I remember is "Double talk, that's all I get from you." Even the band is trying to sound like Ronstadt's band from the 70s. I've googled everything I can think of to no avail. I will expect the answer momentarily. Thanks.

Is it a new release - something modern? Or is it from an earlier era?

Oh - and what station and city are you hearing it in?

Not sure how old it is. I heard it on WAAK 104.7, Crestview, FL. I called the station and they don't know.

I don't know; but I've favourited this, because I love Linda Ronstadt, especially early Linda, and would like to hear this singer, too.

I got nothin' else, sorry!

The band, the backup vocals and even the guitars sound like they are trying to evoke her early sound. The singer's delivery sounds like she's consciously trying to sound like Linda, which ain't easy to do.

Too many sounds in that last post...

Could you tell us what Linda Rondstat song it sounded like to you?

I'm going to take a long shot here, but ... Dixie Chicks, 'Everybody Knows'?

I was suggest trying out http://yes.com - putting in the station call letters and then you can choose which time frame it played and narrow down your selection pretty well.

I can't believe nobody can answer this question. I thought for sure that this would be quick and easy. Yes. com doesn't include WAAK.

wsg: As for difficulty, know why it's hard? Let me rephrase your question:

"I've heard this song. It sounds like something that was put out at a time when most metafilter users were but a twinkle in the eye of their parents. And I don't know any of the lyrics. What is it? You know it, I'm sure, tell me now!"

SpecialK,

I provided the lyric hook of the song, as in the main line from the chorus. I have seen much tougher questions answered here with less information given. I guess there aren't many country music fans hanging at ask mefi.

Definitely not many country fans here. The hook isn't googleable (even though country lyrics are rife on the 'net), which leads me to believe that the hook isn't correct... which is why I suggested a song that the phrasing could fit into that sounded like the right era to my ear.

Of course, it's all pedantic now. Sorry we couldn't help.

It's not "Talk to Me" by Leann Rimes, is it?

I can tell you've been crying on the inside
I can see right through your eyes, what you're trying to hide
You've got a real big wall covering up what you're feeling for me
Well, c'mon baby, work it on out and talk to me

Baby I'm here
Ready to hear
What you're not saying
I can hear your heartbeat pounding
So don't keep me waiting
C'mon and talk to me
C'mon and talk to me

I can tell you've been hurt before
But you're face to face with love knocking at your door
All you need is a little trust to set you free
Well, here I am, don't hold back, baby talk to me

Baby I'm here
Ready to hear
What you're not saying
I can hear your heartbeat pounding
So don't keep me waiting
C'mon and talk to me
C'mon and talk to me

I cried a tear
As I felt the pain
That you hold inside
But true love is strong enough to survive
C'mon and talk to me

Baby I'm here
Ready to hear
What you're not saying
I can hear your heartbeat pounding
So don't keep me waiting
C'mon and talk to me
C'mon and talk to me
