They also are musicians we remember when we do enjoy the heavy New Country Rock music. For some years, they are real Stars in the United States, win many Country Music awards and play in big stadiums. So they are at the top of this kind of music. And they sure stay at the top with this new album. It is a remarkable album and ‘Cowboy Town’ confirms that Brooke and Dunn is the New Country band that is the best to mix Rock and Country music. Their career began in the beginning of the 90s and they already have released about twelve great albums [listen to ‘Brand New Man’ (1991), ‘Hard Workin’ man’ (1993), ‘Red Dirt Road’ (2003) or ‘Hillbilly Deluxe’ (2005)]. Nothing to let drop in all that stuff ! And today ‘Cowboy Town’ is at the same level, heavy sound, guitars everywhere, great melodies… so what can we ask ? So obviously, if you don’t enjoy too much the New Country Rock, you won’t appreciate it, but the good Rock n’ Roll fans will sure enjoy this ‘Cowboy Town’ (whose beginning looks like Bruce Springsteen ‘Born In The USA’), the ZZ Top style ‘Drop In The Bucket’ and the Rolling Stones type ‘Put A Girl In It’. That’s heavy swinging music, and their real Country songs like ‘Ballad of Jerry Jeff Walker’ and ‘God Must Be Busy’ are moving.
No, there’s nothing left to say, just that ‘Cowboy Town’ is one of the best 2007 album.
What ??? Who said I’m not objective ??
