Press / Reviews

 

“Finally, some REAL country. I love this guy! I love his slightly rowdy sounding voice, the southern twang that is missing from modern country, the authentic lyrics, all of it. This is real, classic country and this is what's missing today. I love his voice. It's a little bit George Jones, a little Gary Anderson. I love the lyrics-- fun, upbeat and relatable. I love the music-- it's honky tonk style and I can't say enough good about this guy! I would love to hear more and I dislike nothing at all.”
