Bo Bice 3

by: Bo Bice

Album Artwork

(Saguaro Road Records)

I have been following Bo Bice since the very first American Idol audition way back when, and have always liked him a lot. The guy has a great voice, a lot of guitar ability, and just a whole lot of performing savvy.

After he came in second to Carrie Underwood in the idol finals, I was a little worried that the record company suits would suck all the life and originality out of our Alabama boy. Well, on the first album, they kinda did. It was one of those slick pop records that send me running from the room screaming.

His second album was a lot better, but this new one really eclipses that one. It’s really a good one. From the opening track “Keep On Rollin” with it’s gospel tinged Southern rock vibe to the decidedly country “Different Shades of Blue,” 3 is a winner.

“Comin; Back Home” rocks seriously , and “Good Hearted Woman” (not the Waylon song) is a country rockin’ good time, filled with fiddle, steel, mandolin and all the good stuff, while “Who Know’s What” may be my favorite track on the album. It’s funky as hell, like Delbert McClinton on steroids.

Co-produced by Bo with D. Scott Miller, the record features a handful of love songs if you like that kind of thing. I mean, they are all good, but I prefer tracks like the rockin’ ‘Get On and Ride
 with it’s Lynyrd Skynyrd vibe. 

When all is said and done this record will slide comfortably into the whole Nashville country rock mode alongside folks like Zac Brown Band, Montgomery Gentry  and Van Zant. Great artists who blent their Southern Rock and country influences into a unique and special sound.
