Headlights, Taillights and Radios
Released: Aug 2013
Label: Lawrence Music Group
True, Tracy Lawrence has been singing like a lightweight Jason Aldean since Aldean was singing to empty VFWs, but you'll still hear the latter's voice all over Headlights. "Lie" is particularly Aldean-esque, its ignorance-is-bliss hook recalling early hit "The Truth," but tracks like "Cecil's Palace" are pure Garth, particularly the Garth who added some honky-tonk to his sound. "Stop, Drop and Roll," meanwhile, is corny fun, a country "Hot in Herre" that adds new meaning to "friends in low places," and "Other Side of 35" is earnest reflection. It's a Tim McGraw bite, but so what?
