Jacksonville City Nights is the second of three releases from Ryan Adams & The Cardinals during 2005. Cold Roses received high praise from the press and was considered by many as Adam`s finest work as a solo artist. With its strong songwriting, solid performances and "old school" country flavor, Jacksonville City Nights is the perfect follow-up to Cold Roses.

As with Cold Roses, The honky-tonk infused Jacksonville City Nights was produced by Tom Schick with all 14 songs written and recorded by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals: J.P. Bowersock (electric guitar), Brad Pemberton (drums), Jon Graboff (pedal steel, 12 string guitar, mandolin, tambourine, backing vocals) and Catherine Popper (bass, keyboards, backing vocals). Jacksonville City Nights also features a haunting duet with Norah Jones, "Dear John". While the songs on Cold Roses found inspiration from such artists as The Grateful Dead and Neil Young, Jacksonville City Nights, while still hinting at the country-rock influences, incorporates some of the finest ingredients of traditional country music. Incredibly consistent from start to finish.

Muze PNote Ryan Adams's sophomore album with his Cardinals backing band, and his second studio offering of 2005, JACKSONVILLE CITY NIGHTS finds the ever-prolific singer/songwriter in his twangy, Gram Parsons-inspired persona. In fact, on "Dear John," jazz/pop superstar Norah Jones plays Emmylou Harris to Adams's Parsons, as the two settle into a slow, smoky duet.
Muze PNote While JACKSONVILLE has an energetic moment or two ("The Hardest Part"), it never wanders anywhere near Adams's amped-up ROCK N ROLL territory. In general, this is melancholy, down-tempo alt-country, which, given Adams's past in Whiskeytown, explains why the performer sounds so at ease here. "A Kiss Before I Go" begins the album on a wistful note, setting the tone with barroom piano lines and weepy pedal-steel work. On "Hardest Way to Fall," Adams indulges in a sauntering Dylan-like vibe, while "September" proves to be almost haunting in its minimalism. Although Adams's artistic reach occasionally exceeds his grasp, JACKSONVILLE CITY NIGHTS finds the artist playing to his strengths, resulting in one of his most consistent records.

Artist Overview

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams started out as the leader of Whiskeytown, one of the most highly regarded alt-country bands of the late 1990s. By 2000, he was a solo artist, delivering a mostly acoustic set of Dylanesque tunes on HEARTBREAKER. By the time the follow-up GOLD came out a year later, Adams was the It Boy of America, turning up on MTV and seemingly every magazine cover.
