“There have been several beautifully upbeat country pop songs released this year – perhaps as an antidote to 2020 – and this is one of the best, due to Lukin’s skill as a singer as well as the construction of the song.” - Sunburnt Country
‘Caught Up In A Dream’ is a melodic, slickly-produced pop-country track with hooks for days and a message about forging your own path, regardless of what society tells you to do.- Blank Street Press GC.
