How many times have you had this conversation in your personal life?
You: Oh my God! Check out what I found at the record store!!
Someone who is not near as excited: Oh…..ok……cool?
You: Why can’t you care about what I care about?!?!?!
I don’t have anyone in my close circle that gets anywhere near as excited about finding random things at the record store; that is why I have you.
This record is modern red dirt Texas country. It features traditional country instruments and sounds, but they are very polished and smooth. There is never an overpowering sense of twang or bluegrass or honky tonk or western swing, but all of those elements live in harmony in the the sound on this album.
The vocals on Goodbye Normal Street are different than most country albums you will find. While there is a little bit of a twang, it is very subtle. The vocals alone have more of a singer-songwriter feel, but when they are coupled with a pedal steel and fiddle they become red dirt country.
My favorite track: Good Lord Lorrie
