Holly Williams - The Highway
One listen to the lead track Drinkin' and I was hooked. The perfect mix of songwriting, singing and playing...Americana defined. Check out the official video.
There are some upbeat tracks and some ballads any of which blows away what is being sold by Nashville as country music in 2013. Railroads should be a hit on CMT but that'll never happen...it's too good. There is so much to like here from the title track to the very last Waitin' On June. The last one is one giant "ball in the throat" song written in her maternal grandfathers voice about his life with his wife. If we all get to live that life we will leave this earth winners in my book. Stellar song writing.
I can recommend this one enough. Go grab yourself a copy from iTunes, or even better yet on vinyl, you won't regret this one folks. Here's a little more video to whet your appetites.
