This ex-Hootie and the Blow Fish singer was great as support for Brad Paisley This Is Country Music this summer so I decided to check out the CD. I wasn't disappointed. It has a mix of really upbeat country tracks with some slower ones. Real touches of his experience as a southern boy out in the wider world, with songs about his roots, that draw you into a musical experience and feel for his life. It is generally up-lifting and a good anti-dote to the current times. I particularly like 'Southern State of Mind', but the whole CD is a great listen.
