Review: Zack Walther And The Cronkites - Ambition

Fans of New Braunfels, Texas band Zack Walther And The Cronkites are fired up, and they have every reason to be. ZWC's new album "Ambition" fully lives up to its lofty title. This is one Texas country band whose star is on the rise. "Ambition" puts all the top Texas music band's on notice: Step up your game or move over for Zack Walther And The Cronkites.

ZWC's current single "Georgia Cane" is a Texas music triumph that slowly builds momentum leading into the powerful chorus. "Georgia Cane" boasts memorable lyrics and a confident vocal performance by Zack Walther. It is followed by the equally pleasing "Tumbleweed" which blends traditional country melodies with Texas music themes.

Zack Walther And The Cronkites are unique in the Texas music marketplace. The band is essentially a combination of Red Dirt and southern rock. This is a winning formula for success in both the Texas country and mainstream country markets. Indeed, the musicianship of the band mixed with the deep, rich southern vocals of Walther are an unbeatable pairing. This is most clearly illustrated on the anthemic tracks "Without One Sound" and the best song on the album, "Down Easy." The aforementioned song is country perfection, and "Down Easy" deserves to be on the country charts.

The band shows its more vulnerable side on the terrific "Just Say When," and this cut shows true artistry by Zach Walther And The Cronkites. Likewise, "Money Tree (Everything I Need)" showcases a bluesy-country vibe that allows the band to soar. But the biggest surprise of the album is the rockin' final cut "Pull The Pin" which is one of the best hard-driving Texas music tunes to come around in years.

It's clear that the country boys of Zack Walther And The Cronkites are deadly serious musicians who have produced a southern rock and Texas country barn-burner. "Ambition" is a great title for the album. But, on second thought, the band should have called it "Success." Certainly, no one could argue with that.
