Nashville by Solomon Burke
Released: Jan 2006
Label: Shout Factory Records
What's this? A black man singing country music? Hell yes! Yeah, Ray Charles sang country music years before King Solomon, but Burke's blues-tinged twang is way more gritty and soulful than Brother Ray's orchestral countrypolitan gloss. Does that make it better? You decide. If you're already a fan of the heartland hymns, you'll be glad to know that Buddy Miller produced this outstanding, revelatory album and that Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin and Gillian Welch sang backups. This is music, people.
