We have two releases today! Scotty McCreery’s debut album Clear As Day and Rodney Atkins Take A Back Road.
First up, Scotty McCreery! I’m turbo excited to hear what the American Idol winner has to offer us in his debut album. Mark Bright produced Scotty’s album and in case you aren’t aware, he has produced Lee Ann Womack, Gary Allan, Mark Chestnutt, Trisha Yearwood, Brooks & Dunn, Gretchen Wilson, Phil Vassar, Joe Nichols, Clint Black, Montgomery Gentry, Randy Houser & Josh Turner. So I do believe Scotty is on the road to success!!
Here are my pics from a first listen: Walk in the Country, Dirty Dishes, That Old King James. Listen up!
Next, Rodney Atkins new album Take a Back Road. This is Rodney’s 4th album and his latest single, the title track of the album, Take a Back Road is his fastest rising single of his career! Atkins also co-wrote 3 of the songs on the album, which I always find pretty awesome! I’m always very impressed by artists that can write and sing and do everything themselves!
Here are my pics from a first listen: Take a Back Road, The Corner, Feet, Tips, Lifelines, Farmer’s Daughter. Ha! I guess I like a lot of this album right off the bat.
