Great Album

This is an absolutely great album from an artist who is only 26 years old. It is a strong country sound mix that incorporates, slow acoustic, americana, roots, blues, bluegrass, and almost a swing sound. Compelling story telling, and driven instrumentals compliment his vocals and give the songs true depth and character.

Justin is beyond his years with his songwriting. I love the song Ain't Glad I'm Leaving, it leaves you with the feeling it came right out of the 40's, then he switches gears to do Who am I to Say, which is an amazing modern folk-like ballad.

I would recommend this to anyone - I have one of his most country-like songs on my MySpace profile (South Georgia Sugar Babe), and have gotten compliments from people who aren't even Country listeners. He's a breath of fresh, unapologetic, often super-twangy country.

If you have a chance to see him live - you should. He's stage presence is amazing - this guy was born to perform!

Excellent Initial Offering

Great offering from the son of arguably the BEST American singer/songwriter ever (Steve Earle) and the namesake of a true legend (Townes VanZant). It's clear to see that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, since this isn't some pop driven country wannabe album. This is an artist staying true to himself and pouring out his guts for the world to like or hate, and either way he doesn't let the pop charts dictate his music. Thank you Justin for being the artist and man I know your daddy is really proud of!!! Beautiful music and well worth purchasing if you like real country music with soul and heart.
