Jackson Taylor & The Sinners new album “Aces ‘N Eights” is a deliciously confident and bold Texas music triumph that harkens back to the great outlaw country albums of years gone by.
Taylor is a classic country, honky-tonk star because he brings a gritty realism and blue-collar authenticity to his country tales of love and loss. Jackson Taylor is a storyteller in the tradition of Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson. This is meat and potatoes country, and it's darn good eatin'.
However, Jackson Taylor & The Sinners finest moments can actually be found on their more tender songs, and this is a major surprise. "Sunset" is one of the most beautiful Texas love songs of the last ten years, and the title song “Aces ‘N Eights” has to be a tune that even Wade Bowen wishes he had written. This is followed by the track "Easy Lovin' Stranger" which has a great Eagles meets Alan Jackson vibe.
Jackson Taylor & The Sinners have created a classic Texas album that will be enjoyed by fans of pure-bred country music for years to come. So if sinning sounds this good, here's hoping Jackson Taylor & The Sinners don't travel the straight and narrow for at least a couple of decades or so. CountryChart.com
