Wayne - Jimmy Wayne
Jimmy's self-titled debut on Dreamworks Records is a new-country masterpiece. Don't look for a traditional sound here, a few of the tracks are "mainstream" enough to fit right in with today's country radio like his first release "Stay Gone", and others like "Paper Angles", "Just A Dream", and "I Love You This Much"... but for the most part your going to hear some different stuff from Jimmy Wayne. And it's real good. Jimmy describes his sound as; “Country with a little bit of soul influences added to it. I want to write and sing songs that people can relate to, songs that have a real heartfelt message.”
Eight of the twelve cuts on this CD are co-written by Jimmy and he pours his heart and soul into each one. You can hear the maturity that a hard start at life can bring in every song.
Anyone who can write and perform a song like "Stay Gone", which is a really nice way of saying "whatever you do, don't come back", and make it sound like a love song is A-OK with me.
Although I like a number of songs on this CD I think my personal favorite and the most telling song on the album "I Love You This Much". Great writing.
Rating: Buy it!
