EDITORS’ NOTES

Tailgates & Tanlines is a good title for an album overflowing with fun-in-the-sun songs. The uplifting “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” rocks warmly with the familiar tones and cascading vocal harmonies of '70s AM radio, recalling when bands like The Eagles and Pure Prairie League brought twangy pedal steel to classic rock airwaves. “Drunk on You” is a feel-good country-rock ballad with slowly plucked banjo strings resonating under a cute chorus in which Bryan serenades his muse with the endearingly corny lyrics “I’m a little drunk on you/And high on summertime.” Rhett Akins cowrote “I Don’t Want This Night to End,” a contagiously catchy standout where a rapidly phrased verse is nicely balanced with a flowing refrain.
