Usually, when people speak about "new country, everybody thinks of Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, Little Texas, Brooks & Dunn, among others, but there also shourld be Montgomery & Gentry with their country and rock atmospheres. They have remarquable musical expressions and sometimes their music goes real close to the one we love at "Road To Jacksonville", that is southern rock. With this new album, "My town", their 3rd one, they surely maintain they're one of the best "new country" acts, with country songs good for the heart ("My town", "Break my heart again", "Lie before you leave"), with rock'n roll and bluesy tunes ("Bad for good", "Why do I feel like running"), and a special cover, as it is a song from the great Allman Brothers band, "Good clean fun". When you know great musicians such as Johnny Neel, Chuck Leavell, Pat Buchanan and Greg Morrow played on the album, you're a bit less surprised. Let's hope this kind of music can be much more distributed in our country....Keep your fingers crossed.
