New To This Town

New To This Town by Kix Brooks
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Arista Nashville
Brooks & Dunn's demise was mourned by country music fans, but had they known what was in store with Brooks' solo album, it might not have been such a crushing blow. To say that Brooks has reinvented himself is a stretch, but this album is definitely modern, without being cloying. Brooks does a great job at being melodic but not pop, earthy but not slick, and down-to-earth rather than over-the-top. There's plenty to make you salivate here, including the bluesy, stomping "Moonshine Road," gentle twangers "Bring It on Home" and "Closin' Time at Home," and the rocking "Next to That Woman."
