Southern rock and country music. Charlie Daniels. Lynyrd Skynyrd. Allman Brothers. Marshall Tucker. Names that are familiar to fans of both genres of music--because they are essentially the same: great, well-written, well-delivered songs of the working man, his life, his family, and everything he stands for.
On SOUTHERN ROCK COUNTRY STYLE, produced by COMMON THREAD: THE SONGS OF THE EAGLES producer Ralph Sall, we have great country singers--from Charlie Daniels to James Otto--singing songs that they've been covering for years. Listen as Tracy Byrd rips into "If You Wanna Get to Heaven;" be mesmerized as Billy Currington revives "Keep Your Hands to Yourself." Brian McComas takes the Pure Prairie League classic "Amie" and makes it his own; Charlie Daniels brings "Sweet Home Alabama" to a new level; Mark Chesnutt puts his honky-tonk stamp on "Heard It In a Love Song;" and Anita Cochran, with the help of Jason Sellers, belts out "Can't You See."
Not to say that these artists do better than the original artists. But...well, it's different, and it's GOOD, so why not say it's GREAT? The fact is, whether you're a fan of country or rock, you're gonna love this CD (heck, if you've seen some of these people live, you've probably already heard these). From familiar country stars to newcomers, from Allman Brothers classics to a song by the Black Crowes--SOUTHERN ROCK COUNTRY STYLE is a compelling, rockin' good CD filled with great music by great artists.
