"Just Another Sad Ol' Song", must be a depressing record. Well not quite. While half of these songs are about heartache, tragedy and sadness there are plenty of other emotions too.
From the poignant sentiment of "The Most Important Work" about a woman discovering the true value of motherhood to the irony of "The Future Ain't What It Used to Be", the fatherly guidance of "What Does It Take to be a Cowboy" to the sexiness of Lady Wrangler jeans celebrated in "A Little Hitch" and the twangy, tele instrumental "Brunagulax" there is some real variety here. And it's all wrapped up in lots of steel guitar, fiddle, mandolin and some serious twang! Oh and the vocals are pretty good too.
But above all, remember folks, there here is a country record!
