A friend of mine turned me on to this new artist. His name is JJ Lawhorn, and he is AWESOME.
He grew up on a farm in Virginia. He was planning to go to Virginia Tech to study agriculture to carry on in the family farm business, but then a prominent producer found him on You Tube, and the rest, as they say, is history. He is now signed to Colt Ford's record label and his debut CD came out last Tuesday. You can listen to the CD here. Please do!!!
There is no denying that he is as Country as Country gets. No poppy fluff stuff here, just good ol' Country music. My friend that turned me on to him has asked me a few times what my favorite songs are. I don't have one. I genuinely love the CD from the first note of the first song to the last note of the last song. It's not one of those CDs that has 10 songs on it, but only one or two are good. It's a CD where all 12 songs are friggin' great! It's the perfect soundtrack for hanging out on a Friday or Saturday night with some friends and some cold beer or even if you're driving down the road and just want to hear some good music. I love CDS like that. And I love this guy.
Give it a listen. If you are fan of real Country music, I bet you will like JJ Lawhorn's music as much as I do. I can't wait to hear what you think of it!!! Enjoy!
