This evoking new album kicks off with the mid-tempo fiddle and percussion magnificence of 'Runnin' Drugs Out Of Mexico' and that's followed by the free flowing spirit of 'Mexican Woman' ["She loved my silver dollars and I loved her emerald eyes"], and the foot-tappin' vibe of 'No Shortage Of The Blues.'
The lo-fi ballad 'Damn Cryin' Shame' is then backed by the upbeat fun of looking back at a life lived in 'Stranger.' Some home truth (perhaps) storytelling comes to the fore on 'The Prison Song,' which is followed by the finger-snappin' 'Ramblin' Gypsy' and then the mid-tempo sway of 'You Lied Our Love Away.'
Then we get the song dedicated to all railfan's, 'I Like Trains,' and that's backed by the Country blues of 'No God In Juaurez,' with the album rounding out with the Morricone-resonating vibe of 'Wild Dogs,' before ending on the barn dance beauty, 'Honky Tonk Boots.'
“It is a great album, Billy Don sounds great, as he always does. The songs are fantastic. He sings about the truth and hard times, but he tells a tale of warning and a tale of heart with this album,” exclaims Shooter Jennings.
“Long live Billy Don Burns and his very important place in the history of Country and Western Music.”
