Largely the problem is that "Perfect Storm" left very few choices for strong singles. "American Flag on the Moon" or "Shattered Glass" would have been choices with more substance, but other than that, the album itself offered very little other than a bunch of good-time songs. Sure it wasn't to the extent that Florida Georgia Line's album was, but this was a party-anthem heavy album. So much of it was meant for kicking back on the beach, without being blatantly about the beach in the vein of a Kenny Chesney album.
And that's what "Crushin' It" is. It's a party song. It even has the obligatory name dropping, this time of George Strait. And I'll admit, on a warm summer day, this song would probably be fun to listen to. It's fun. It's not a bad song. It's just not a good one either. I think what' most disheartening is that, as I mentioned, there's so little left to look forward to as far as future single releases from the album. With Wheelhouse, after "Beat This Summer," even if the singles released didn't perform, there was at least some quality music there. With Moonshine in the Trunk, most of what's left is fluff, and the songs of any substance won't be released, because in the current radio environment, there's still too little commercial viability for them.
On its surface, "Crushin' It," can be enjoyed, but deeper down, there's the harsh reality that this is really just a rehash of "River Bank." And at least when "River Bank" climbed the charts, it felt seasonally appropriate.
