Smooth, professional country album from one of country’s all-stars with highlights of bluegrass individuality. This album stands out from his classic sound, both in the heavy feeling of bluegrass and in the great variation in the way his voice is used, Not your typical Dwight Yoakam. Best songs are #6, #10 and (by far my favorite) #12.
