How strange that George Jones' last new verse might be on an album made by these two goons. Best known for their hard-rocking, hick-hopping "C.O.U.N.T.R.Y.," LoCash Cowboys arrive with a debut LP that's both diverse and consistent: "Love Drunk" is yet another new country song with more steel drum than steel guitar, and "Bounce" starts Aldean before erupting into a chorus that's Spin Doctors giddy. Meanwhile, the George Jones track, "Independent Trucker," is a knowing callback to the CB radio songs of the '70s, a subgenre of spoken-word tunes that were, in a way, the original hick-hop.
