Tate Stevens by Tate Stevens
Released: May 2014
Label: RPM Entertainment
Missouri's Tate Stevens won season two of the U.S. X-Factor by playing up his low, thick tenor, singing songs by similar-sounding influences like Chris Young, Randy Houser and (it almost goes without saying) Garth Brooks. Sticking with what's worked, the 38-year-old spends his debut LP emphasizing his voice and celebrating the small towns that voted him to reality-TV fame. Switching it up, "Power of a Love Song," the single, celebrates country music itself, and "El Camino," the standout, gets bonus points for rhyming "tailgate," "guesstimate" and "go to the lake."
