Hillbilly Singer, Scott Southworth returns with a new offering this September called Comin’ Around to Honky Tonk Again.

 

As promised in the opening track this a typical Southworth record and to be honest as far as this critic is concerned there is nothing wrong with that!

 

If you’re a Scott Southworth fan you can quit reading now and just go out and buy the album. You will not be disappointed.

Some of the highlights worth mentioning are Here Comes the Night. It’s  pure honky tonk and one of my favorite songs on the album. It feature Southworth in fine vocal form on a solidly written song.

Just Fishing is very reminiscent of early Alan Jackson without being at all derivative and leaves you smiling when it’s over.

 

Granny Used to Honky Tonk features Dallas Moore and as one of the pre release singles it is burning up the radio charts.  It is the perfect song to help both artists grow their fan base.

 

Over Getting Over You Again features twin fiddles from Joe Spivey, some great pedal steel and Scott channeling the very best of David Allen Coe’s unique vocal stylings on a very pretty song co-written with Jan Buckingham.

 

Country No Matter What Country features 7 artists from around the world helping Scott drive home the point that country music is the same no matter where you are or who you are. It is the music of the people. Even if Nashville has forgotten this, millions of people around the world remember and love country music the way it is supposed to be.

 

Woman On My New Tattoo is another song that features Southworth’s wry sense of humor and wit. It is also one of my favorites. While all the songs on this collection are great I find myself drawn to the ones that Southworth penned alone the most.

 

Drinking for Two is a straight up honky tonk shuffle song written with former Music Row Show host Heino Moeller and will really get your feet going. It also features some great lead guitar work provided by Nashville session legend, Brent Mason.

The rest of the album lives up to Southworth’s reputation and there are surely some crowd pleasing sing alongs and ad libs floating around in the closing track, Middle Finger First. Which I am sure will likely be his closing number for the upcoming tour.

 

If you know what’s good for you I suggest run on out and pick up a copy  “Comin’ Around to Honky Tonk Again.”
