CD Review: Nashvillains – Tumblin’ Down
by Chris Keaton for Country Music News International
Devil Don’t Sleep
Standing In The Fire
Baby Keeps Killing’ Me
There To Catch Me
Love Is Pain
Don’t Let Me Hang
“I don’t know why fortune smiles on some and let’s the rest go free” is a line from Glenn Frey, Don Henley and J.D. Souther’s The Sad Cafe and, boy, does it apply here. The three members of Nashvillains are, in my humble opinion, three of the most talented, most deserving creatives around. Yet, they remain just under the radar. Well, maybe it’s time for new radar.
TUMBLIN’ DOWN is the latest batch of songs from the forces of nature Troy Johnson, Brett Boyett and Scott Lindsey, known collectively as Nashvillains. Unknown to most is that these guys are on the construction site of many hit songs-meaning they are musicians and demo singers for some of the hottest songwriters, sound designers and successful publishers in Music City. Their songwriting credits are a freakin’ mile long.
In a perfect world, Nashvillains would be topping charts and singing to packed houses. As we know, the world is not perfect but the silver lining can be found in this collection of songs and performances by these three.
Please don’t deny yourself the joy of listening to these nine tracks. Put your earphones in and sail away with Troy, Brett and Scott. TUMBLIN’ DOWN is a musical journey worth the trip.
BONUS ALERT!!! You absolutely have to hear their cover of the Crowded House song, “Don’t Dream It’s Over” recorded during lockdown and living on their website.
Thank you, Troy, Brett and Scott!
