Different than 1st solo album, `Song Dog'. Took a few listens to decide which songs truly resonated. If you're reading this & haven't heard any of his solo work, this album musically conjures up the following artists (in no particular order): Alison Krauss & Union Station (w/ male tenor instead of female lead), Fleetwood Mac, Keith Whitley, James Taylor, Gram Parsons, Steve Earle and John Denver. In the end, this honest effort of an album has become a favorite and is especially good for long road trips. Only regret is that he does not get more airplay in the U.S.
