Terry Robbins is an Alabama boy.  You know that country
music paradise Hank Williams, Sr. came from.  And guess what, Terry
Robbins is bringing the traditional country music sound back….BIG
TIME!  The first track is a ‘wonder’ in today’s world of phony country
music.  This is the ‘real deal’ and ‘real deal’ it really is.  Robbins
is the songwriter as well, on all these tracks, and the steel guitar and
the fiddle are predominant throughout.  You’ll hear a little Buck Owens
in Terry’s voice, but he’s still his own man, and this CD will no doubt
create a ‘wave’ of interest among the traditional and classic music
lovers, that will even seep past the city limits of Nashville, much to
their embarrassment.  Exactly what this CD is supposed to do.  I loved
track one, but track two is just as good, give it a little Cajun twist
but keep it traditional, and you know what I mean.  The whole CD is
plumb full of some incredibly good legitimate ‘country’ music songs. 
Winning and losing love is paramount in Terry’s writings. Tracks 3-4-5
heads in this direction. ALL of Terry Robbins songs are extremely good
‘real’ country music songs. He writes from the perspective of a
‘country’ boy.  Someone who has probably spent a little time behind a
mule plowing somewhere. That’s how Hank described ‘writing’ country
music.  You had to ‘know’ what you are writing about, especially if you
want to impress ‘country’ folks.  That’s what Terry Robbins does
throughout this entire CD.  Bruce Hoffman is the musician that plays
both steel and fiddle, and he’s a marvel.  He knows exactly what goes
where in both cases. Add Bryan Carter on acoustic and electric guitar,
bass, keyboards, and drums, and you can see this is a full-blown studio
produced project with all the elements needed to ‘create’ a beautiful,
very real, traditional country music album, a ‘real’ country music
album. I’m sending this CD along to the Rural Roots Music Commission for
their appraisal for a ‘CD of the Year’ award, and I already know what
they are going to say.  If things go the way I think, this might be a
‘prime’ opportunity to save some space on the Fremont Festival for Terry
Robbins from Alabama.  We’ll be needing a steel and a fiddle of course,
well wish me luck in finding what we need. Congratulations Terry
Robbins.
