semi-autobiographical glance into Brian’s life. “That Old Cat” has a classic country/folk tune that seems a cross

his soul to the listener. In The Texas Side of Nashville, Brian
delves down into his deepest darkest feelings, but the end, his songs reflect
pure country, shining under the bright lights of Texas.
