Album Review: Long Woodson "Robyville"

Contemporary Texas country has found a new hero in Long Woodson and his brand new CD "Robyville." Woodson's comfortable vocals and outlaw country attitude make for compelling listening that will leave listenters wanting more.
The album begins with "Jimi" which has a retro-cool vibe reminiscent of Hayes Carll. Woodson's vocal perfomance is confident without feeling forced. At first listen, "Jimi" would not seem to have country chart potential, but on repeated listens the cut has indelible charm and a memorable chorus.

"Creole Man" showcases Long Woodson's obviously mixed love affair of classic rock and classic country. The lyrics are the star of the show. The third track "Nikki" shows Woodson's technical skills as a vocalist and could be enjoyed in both coffee houses and saloons. Likewise, the title track "Robyville" is an eclectic musical treat.

The biggest surprise is the country bar crowd anthem "Horny As Me." While this song might not work for family night at the community center, there is no doubt this song has hit potential. "Chicago" also surprises with its understated charm.

"Robyville" is a truly original and innovative country music album from rising star Long Woodson that should not be missed. CountryChart.com
