There are a few constants in the universe: death, taxes, and that falling in love feels incredible – especially if you were resigned never to give your heart away ever again. That romantic revitalization, that love unlocking beats at the center of “Open,” the new song from “Country Vogue” star Ashlie Amber. “Yeah, my hearts on lockdown / It’s Fort Knox you gotta knock down,” she sings at the start before kicking the song into high gear. With a dash of southern rock swagger, R&B silkiness, and country-pop splendor, “Open” is like a burst of sunlight after a year of clouds.
