Promising newcomer adds grit to Nashville debut

by redtunictroll@hotmail.com on 2/5/2006

Johnson's baritone shows a touch of fellow Alabaman Vern Gosdin, but with a rougher finish that gives his voice an appealing edge. His songs (he wrote or co-wrote seven of these eleven titles) range from homespun ("The Dollar") to rowdy ("Rebelicious") to soulfully spiritual ("Lead Me Home"). The upbeat numbers often sound derivative of Big and Rich's sound, making "Ray Ray's Juke Joint" more rock than swamp and "Redneck Side of Me" more sized for an arena than a bluesy roadhouse. ¶ Where Johnson's personality shines through is on the ballads and mid-tempo numbers. "Flying Silver Eagle," with guitar sounds mined from Haggard's greatest hits of the '70s, is a stellar song of a romantic dead-end turned into personal freedom, and the album's title hit is a clever, sweet song of a young son's love of time spent with his father. "Lead Me Home" is the sort of funereal song that Patty Loveless has successfully used to close many of her albums; Johnson's original song of life after death is moving and powerful. ¶ There's enough radio-friendly fare here to clearly mark this as a major-label Nashville project. But just the same, Johnson has his own artistic voice, both in words and vocals, and producer Buddy Cannon's done a nice job of framing it both for radio and for posterity. Modern country fans will like the more contemporary tracks, while others will find a surprising helping of earthier sounds sprinkled throughout. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
