Though many country music lovers feel that the true country sound is gone simply because of what they are hearing on mainstream radio these days, the truth is that it isn’t gone at all but you just have to dig a little deeper to find it. Texas is one spot to dig for it and you will be amazed at what you find. You will find several artists playing a brand of country music that you will love including Don Woods. With his album 90 Proof he blends his influences from the classic era with the modern era giving listeners an album that is undeniably country without sounding dated. He perfectly hits on several different tempos throughout the album and balances them all perfectly. “More Than Dallas” or “If It Wasn’t For The Radio” bring a slower pace to the album that allows Woods’ rich vocals to be the center of the song, while the tough rocking country of “Lipstick On a Cigarette” lets the music add the kick. In between you get a healthy offering of classic era influence as is evident by the sound of the steel guitar on “The Grand Tour” and in the great storytelling on “Some Summer” and “The Ride,” both which use their lyrics to paint vivid pictures in our minds as we listen. There is no doubt about that Don Woods is influenced by classic country artists like George Jones and/or Waylon Jennings, but he is smart enough as an artist to keep this just modern enough to have an updated classic sound. Because of this ability, if Don Woods sits in waiting for the current pop/rock trend of country’s mainstream to pass, then he will be right there and ready to take the reins when the opportunity to do so presents itself.
