Brooks & Dunn - Red Dirt Road
CD Review by Jim Weaver

CD Review:
Since Slim & Howdy's first CD came out back in February of 1993 these guys have won more awards and fans and well deserved Kudos from every direction than any duo... ever. There have been several occasions over the years where it looked like they were going to go their separate ways until 2001 and the release of the Steers & Stripes CD and the supporting Neon Circus and Wild West Tour. These guys just can't seem to do anything wrong, or can they? This Tuesday (7/15) is the release of their latest CD Red Dirt Road.  Hope I didn't scare you with that earlier sentence but let me say this, Red Dirt Road is not your usual Brooks & Dunn CD. There's some stretching and exploring going on here, you'll hear Country music of course, but then you'll also hear Rock, Gospel and Blues. In short, you're going to hear the real roots of Kix and Ronnie and all their influences on this album. Not that that's a bad thing, for someone like me who has a love for all kinds of music this is fun stuff, however if your strictly into Honky Tonkin', Lovin' and Cheatin' songs you might want to try it before you buy it. In short, I like it... you, who knows. (shrugs) 

Red Dirt Road track list:

1. You Can't Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl
2. Caroline
3. When We Were Kings
4. That's What She Gets For Loving Me
5. Red Dirt Road
6. Feels Good Don't It

15. Holy War (Hidden Track)

Rating: Try It then Buy it!

Website Review by Jim Weaver:
Looks great, where's all the neat stuff? Oh there it is, tucked neatly behind the password box for members only. I hate that! If you've read my piece on the ABC's of Artist Website Design then you know how I feel about the basics of what the fans want. I believe most fans are kind of like me, love the music but can't afford to join 20 or 30 fan clubs just to find out all the info I would like to know about an artist. There needs to be a good amount of info and pictures for the casual fan  who, with a little loving care, could be turned into a "rabid-$15-a-year-fan-club-member" fan... if only they had some more cool stuff to look at.

Rating: Needs More!
