Darrell Scott's name may not ring any bells -- unless you're a musician. If so, then you are well-acquainted with his songwriting skills and innate musicianship. Just ask Robert Plant, who tapped Scott to be part of his Band of Joy. Long Ride Home is a more fleshed-out affair than previous offerings, but still retains an honest, earthy sound. The intimate "Candle for a Cowboy" is an absolute stunner that blooms under Scott's deft poetic touch. More highlights including the jaunty "No Use Living for Today," the gentle "You're Everything I Wanted Love to Be" and the stompin' "Pay Lake."
