Buddy Jewell's CD - short review
Well....I bought Buddy's cd today.
First of all, let me just say that I went to Music Wherehouse first, as I was in the mall, and they were actually SOLD OUT on Buddy's cd and they had ONE copy left of his single. So even though I was bummed that I didn't get the cd I wanted, I was really happy for Buddy that it was sold out.
So I headed over a couple of blocks to old, dependable WalMart...where the Buddy Jewell cd was displayed on the Best Seller rack.
The cd starts out with "I wanna thank everyone" , which he performed on Nashville Star the night he won & "Help pour out the rain" is the second one, which should be known by now by anyone who watched the show and/or listens to country radio.
Actually a few of his songs are quite familiar by now, like Abilene and One in a Row , both which he performed on NS.
"Today I started loving you again".
The cd features this great duet with Miranda Lambert. It is a slow ballad which sounds very much like the good "old-fashion" kind of country music that I miss from a lot of the modern country music styles that are out today. If I was to compare it to someone familiar, I'd say it's a Tammy Wynette/George Jones kind of duet & it reminds very much of that kind of style.
Jamey Garner actually plays the harmonica on one of his songs, "Sweet southern comfort" , but he didn't get to sing though.... lol
Among the more fast-paced stuff if "I Wanna thank everybody" , which isn't fast persae but a good-paced two stepper.
There's "Abilene" which was a favorite of mine from NS, it's nice and upbeat and needs no further explanation to anyone who knows Buddy....
"O'Reilly's luck" is fast & original with kind of an irish undertone but is still country music style, and is a story-telling kind of tune.
"I can get by" is a real twangy toe-tapper with some awesome steel guitar & great fiddle solos & guitar jammin' & all that tasty stuff.
It's a good album in true Buddy Jewell style, I love every single song including the ballads, I've listened through the cd three times now and they just get better each time.
Every song is well written & well performed :-)
Reaaally good for a first cd (well first official cd as he had the two other ones, which aren't for sale anymore in fact) and I can't wait for the next one (and I promise to get the next one from Amazon.com and support the FORT!! lol...)
