Randy’s Song Review of Rednecks by Shane Barnhill

Randy’s Song Review: Rednecks by Shane Barnhill

 Rednecks Official Video Below

Shane Barnhill on stage at a bar in HoustonShane Barnhill is a country singer/songwriter hailing from Baytown, Texas. He was raised in a musical family, with his father also a guitarist and songwriter. Shane picked up the guitar at nine and performed his first gig at only fourteen. Balancing his music career with his day job as a firefighter/paramedic, he has given many live performances, and has opened for Deryl Dodd, Wade Bowen, Charlie Robison and Todd Fritsch.

ShaneBarnhill, on stage with guitar, raising arms wearing red t-shirt with sleeves cut out.He has now recorded three albums, with the first one Just Getting Started released in 2007. He followed up with Outlaw Angels and Country Nights in 2011, and had big success on Texas radio with Still Sexy To Me, Two Lovers In The Night and Turn It Up. For his third album, Country Lovin’, he worked with Jason Rooks and Bobby Terry as producers and they are the writers of this song Rednecks, which is the first track on that album.

Rednecks immediately grips the listener with an arresting introduction, featuring a rocky guitar riff and a pulsating, pounding beat. The sound is most definitely country rock, breaking down to a thudding kick and throbbing bass for the verse, keeping the momentum going. Shane’s strong, charismatic voice then captivates the attention, with the full beat returning for the second half of the verse.

ShaneBarnhill-RedGuitarLyrically, this song rails against the pejorative stereotype that many associate with the word ‘redneck’. Rather than use the word as a demeaning insult, the first verse depicts rednecks as down-to-earth, helpful people, bailing some city folks out of trouble after running out of gas. This leads to a short bridge before the catchy chorus celebrates “hicks from the sticks…. there ain’t a problem we can’t fix…”.

ShaneBarnhill-guitarThe chorus has an unexpected second section based on an ascending guitar line that lifts the music even more, with the lines “If you’re in a jam and you need a hand, someone who’s really gonna give a damn….then your best bet is rednecks…”. The second verse continues the theme, interspersed with some nice lead guitar lines. After the second chorus is a short rocky section with some great dynamics, adding a bit more musical variety before driving home the last chorus.

Overall, this is a very well written and performed song that takes a familiar derogatory term and cleverly turns the meaning upside down, so that it becomes a positive, celebratory anthem. Shane Barnhill does a fine job vocally and it’s a perfect taster for his third album Country Lovin’. He already has a large fanbase and it will only increase with every new release, especially radio-friendly songs like this.

Randy’s SongReview of Jarrod Johnson’s New Single Lost Highway

Randy’s SongReview: Lost Highway (featuring Randy Kohrs) by Jarrod Johnson

Jarrod Johnson sitting on sidewalk, playing guitar in his lap.Jarrod Johnson is a singer, musician and songwriter hailing from Round Rock, Texas, who has been in the music scene for the past 20 years trying to pull his way to country stardom. He started in music very early in life, picking up the guitar at the age of just five and wrote his first song when he was twelve. From there, he went on to play in bands from thirteen, then fronted his own band aged only fifteen.

He playing his own original material at bars and festivals when most are only doing covers at that age. This led to getting a publishing deal at nineteen, and he moved to Nashville to pitch songs to the stars of the time. He had to experience disappointment when a song destined to be cut by Randy Travis fell through when he lost his record deal, but he carried on recording demos.

Texas Red Dirt Artist Jarrod Johnson standing.Eventually, he found out that songs put on an album made for family and friends were getting air play on Texas radio and so he began performing the songs he’d written for others to sing. While he is now working on his second album, this track, Lost Highway (featuring Randy Kohrs), featured on that first album and was written by Jarrod’s good friend, fellow singer/songwriter, Deryl Dodd.

It is a well crafted bluegrass track, featuring a rootsy sound of banjo, mandolin and fiddle that provide a nice melodic backdrop to Jarrod’s strong and authentic voice. The chorus is lifted by the rich texture of tight vocal harmonies, which provides good contrast to the sparse verses. The vocal melody is memorable and quite upbeat, considering the melancholy nature of the words. The second verse is augmented by some lovely bursts of guitar and the outro section expands on the melodic introduction to bring things to a natural close.Jarrod Johnson on stage singing, holding mic.

Lyrically, the song is quite dark, about the consequences of hanging all your hopes on one relationship and the pain that love can bring: “The day I told her that I loved her and I gave my heart away, if I had only seen the future, I’d not be on this lost highway…”. There is a Johnny Cash-style poetic bleakness to imagery like “This road I’m on is black with darkness, and there’s no shelter from the rain… “.

Overall, this is a moving, haunting bluegrass/country song that is well-written, both musically and lyrically. It is very well performed by JarrodJohnson, who I think will continue to grow his fan base, especially with the upcoming release of his second album.

Jarrod plays several gigs a week, mostly acoustic. But, because of his continued success and demand, he is reaching out to fellow disciplined musicians in order to put a full time band together, and will hopefully be touring soon! The big hit that every songwriter aims for may well yet be ahead of him, there’s no doubting his talent.

Texas Music Chart Interviews Randy Watson

TMCbanner

Texas Music Chart Reporter Profiles

Reprinted from TMC Jun 15, 2015

Texasradio

Tiffini Brock of Blue Lark Entertainment talks to Randy Watson, Operations Manager and Music Director of the No Bull Radio Network which covers Kenedy/Karnes City, Beeville and Pearsall.

Randy and Jack posing in front of KCAF studio in Kenedy, TX.

Randy Watson with Jack Nelson

TMC: In your opinion, how has Texas/Red Dirt music changed throughout the years?

Randy: I’ve watched many of today’s artists grow up. I remember 4-5 hour road trips just to hear folks – some were in their teens, now, in their 30’s – play at hole in the wall bars and dance halls. In the beginning of the Texas Music Chart, there were only about 40 reporters; now there are 90+.

There are lots of potential listeners in Texas who haven’t been exposed to any Texas/Red Dirt music. In San Antonio, for instance, you can hear “All George Strait, All the Time,” Pop Country or Classic Country. No Texas/Red Dirt is played on San Antonio stations, except an occasional Kevin Fowler. We are among a handful of stations in South Texas that play any of the alternative music. We play about 75% Classic Country and 20% Texas/Red Dirt.

TMC: What made you gravitate towards the music on the Texas Music Chart?

Randy: I guess it’s my deep rooted love for true country music, and that’s not what we get through the mainstream much now. I’ll listen to the drums and melody before trying to hear the words. If the overall sound doesn’t hit me I may not know what the song is about. I have to hear songs many times before I figure out what the song is about. (I still don’t know what a Birmingham is, so I don’t know why I would want to paint one.) [Note: A reference to a 2004 song recorded by Tracy Lawrence and Ken Mellons on Nashville labels.]

When it comes to recordings, I am old school: I think you should walk up to the mic, belt out the song until it’s the way you want it, and you’re done. I don’t like the overly processed, enhanced, unnatural, computer adjusted, perfect pitch recordings of today.

TMC: Who are your primary musical influences?

Randy: My mom exposed me to a varied musical spectrum, from classical to sacred to Big Band to Hillbilly, Bluegrass and Country & Western. Why do we leave out the “& Western” now? She taught music, and today at 83, she still tickles the ivories at church. Listening to music in the background while doing a tedious task can make it seem easier. I can tell you that my favorite instruments are probably drums, then fiddle, sit-down steel, accordion and mandolin.

TMC: Are there any “under the radar” artists that we should check out?

Randy: In Texas, we have no shortage in the musical talent pool. We could put on our own Texas Music competition and floor those nationwide TV shows. There are so many good local artists who are happy playing dive bars on Friday and Saturday nights. They don’t really want any more from their music career. They just love playing their music.

I have my eyes and ears on a few artists or bands on different edges of the spectrum. I like the more traditional, straight up country. For the young guys just getting started, I’d say keep a watch out for The Jack Nelson Band and Matt & The Herdsmen.

TMC: What is your most memorable moment with a Texas/Red Dirt artist?

Randy: It’s memorable when I answer the phone and someone, other than a promoter, calls to thank me for playing their song. Wow, you took the time to call me?! We aren’t big spinners, 3 to 15 spins is usually the most you’ll get from us.

Veterans, lovers of freedom and dog lovers get their CD on the top of the stack. Jeremy and Jennica from Moonlight Social, I could sit and talk with them for hours, they are both hoots. Matt and Travis from Fools of the Trade are fun to be around. Jarrod Johnson is my go to guy music encyclopedia.

Randy’s Song Review of Jack Nelson

Randy’s Song Review: Texas Dance Halls by The Jack Nelson Band

Jack Nelson sitting on concrete in alleyway between old buildings.

Jack Nelson from The Jack Nelson Band

Jack Nelson is an up and coming Texas Country Artist who hails from Corpus Christi Bay originally, and first picked up the guitar at only four years old. He spent his childhood playing along with his father’s Tejano band and with his brother, Cameron, who is himself a Texas Music Chart Topper and won the 2014 TMA Male Vocalist of the Year.

After four years serving in the US Navy, (Thank You for your service, Jack), Jack decided to get back into music and, after playing many one man acoustic shows around Texas, formed a group of local musicians around him. Together, they have supported/opened for Tracy Byrd, Bart Crow and Josh Ward amongst many others.

Jack Nelson standing beside the Jack Nelson Band's vintage busThis track, Texas Dance Halls, is an upbeat country number in the classic style, with a slight tinge of rock thrown in to keep it modern; from Let ‘er Buck!, his latest album.  It has an infectious energy that makes it perfect to dance to, and you can imagine everyone two-stepping and boot stomping.

JackNelson-TshirtJack Nelson has a strong voice and is ably backed up by his band, with some lovely fiddle lines and sweet sounding lead guitar. The lead lines are mostly played with a light, creamy tone then switches to a sound with a little more bite for the succinct guitar solo. Lyrically, it’s like the country music equivalent of The Beach Boys classic Surfin’ USA, in the way that Jack shows his Gulf Coast roots and cleverly lists the major Texas Dance Halls to 12-bar blues chord changes. How many Texas Dance Halls can you count that are listed in the song? (I’m intentionally not quoting lines from the song to prevent me from giving away some of the listed Dance Halls.)

Overall, this song shows off Jack’s love for Texas Dance Halls and respect for Texas music. It’s a smart idea for a song and performed with equanimity by Jack Nelson and his band. With flawless production, it is as perfectly suited to radio as it is to the dance halls, and it seems inevitable that Jack will follow in the footsteps of his older brother and find great success.

Jack commemorates his latest radio single “Texas Dance Halls” with a music video where he drives across Texas documenting many of the Texas Dance Halls. How many? I won’t say…

Randy’s Song Review of Aaron Watson

Randy’s Song Review: Freight Train by Aaron Watson

 

aaron-watson-press-1Aaron Watson is a country singer/songwriter raised in Amarillo (“you cant get any more country than that” says Aaron) but now living in Abilene. It was at Abilene Christian University that he began songwriting, and was soon selling records from his backpack. Through the old-school method of hard touring he has built up his career, with Jesus on his side, and has now released twelve albums, sold 150,000 copies, and had seven Number 1’s on the Texas Music Chart.

Underdog-AaronWatsonThis song, Freight Train, is taken from his latest album The Underdog. It’s an upbeat country-rock track that begins with an instantly catchy guitar and banjo intro, the music creating the rolling rhythm of a train in motion. After singing the chorus over this pulsing beat, the drums enter fully with the line “On a wing and a prayer and a glorified greyhound bus…”. Aaron grabs the listener immediately with an authentic country voice and a captivating, powerful delivery.

aaronwatsonLyrically, it’s clearly an ode to a touring musician’s life on the road and the hectic lifestyle it entails. There is a melancholy middle section where he describes missing his wife (“You’re sound asleep while I’m on this stage…..“) and this acts as a nice contrast to the good-time mood of the rest of the song. I enjoyed the understated guitar solo, and the use of steel guitar to mimic the sound of a train towards the end was an inventive, classy touch.

Overall, this is a fun and immensely infectious country song that would get even the most indifferent listener tapping their feet and singing along. After twelve albums, Aaron Watson has become a master of his craft and, with flawless production, radio will be sure to love this one. Having amassed a huge fanbase already, this song should become a firm favorite with existing fans and earn him some new ones too. This freight train will be rolling for quite some time to come!

Randy’s Song Review for Matt & The Herdsmen

Small Town Stories by Matt & the Herdsmen

 by Randy Watson

MATT_COVER_1“Matt & the Herdsmen” are a four-piece country/rock band hailing from the Edinburg, Texas, who formed in late 2013. Lead vocalist and songwriter Matt Castillo gathered together some talented local musicians and they began playing shows together which became further afield in a short time. Matt Castillo is the front man for “Matt & The Herdsmen”, singing lead and playing rhythm guitar. Beto Cavazos plays lead guitar and harmony vocals. Drums are the foundation of any song and Ruben Cantu holds that role, while the bedrock is Danny Salinas playing bass and backup vocals. Honorable mention goes to “roadie” Ryan Perez.

Special guest appearances were Jason Ellsworth on Fiddle and on “All Gone”, Charlie Vela sang harmony vocals. The recording was produced by Charlie Vela from Sounds of Rain Studios and Mastered by Billy Stull of Masterpiece Mastering. A nice touch on the inside cover of the CD, the band begins by thanking God, various parents/grandparents, role models, mentors, family members, friends, businesses and especially thankful for the love and support from their fans.

They have now opened for Jack Ingram and Toby Keith as well as Peyote Hill, Cold Steel Revolver, Last Call Band and popular local country artist Costello. They also wrote nine original tracks along the way and, in August 2014, they took to the studio to record their first album Small Town Stories.

matt&theHerdsmen-grass

Matt & The Herdsmen (L-R) Danny Salinas, Bass/Vocals; Ruben Cantu, Drums; Beto Cavazos, Guitar/Vocals; Matt Castillo, Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar.

Small Town Stories consists of seven tracks beginning with Too Drunk Anyway, written by Matt Castillo. It’s an upbeat country song with a strong vocal performance from Matt, well supported by the authentic sound of his group. Lyrically, it’s not quite as happy, about losing your woman due to drinking, but the second verse gives some hope that the song’s protagonist will amend his ways. I enjoyed the short but well constructed guitar solo that leads into a burst of fiddle, balancing rock and country nicely.
Matt&theHerdsmen-Texas-Logo

Second track Chance To Make You Stay (by Matt Castillo and Max Costello) is a country ballad in the classic style, with an extremely well constructed chord progression that builds gradually. It features some gorgeous guitar throughout (both steel and regular electric) and again finds a man struggling to keep his woman, with some poignant imagery: “Saw those teardrops falling on the pavement, saw those red tail lights fading away…”. A classy piece of songwriting.

Third song Dance All Night is also a romantic ballad but a happy one, and it has already been released as a single to a rapturous response. You can see why, it has a vocal melody that instantly charms the listener and you can easily imagine it being popular as a couple’s song, one for a romantic slow dance. The song’s lyrics are suitably intimate and touching (“I can feel your heartbeat dancing next to mine…”) and features a mellifluous solo before the anthemic last chorus.

The fourth track Love I’d Find is a bit rockier with a strong beat behind it, but still in keeping with the rest of the album. Lyrically, it’s more melancholy, the song’s character lonely and looking for love, but hopefully finding it in a late night bar. The lead guitarist gets to let loose on this one, played with a deliciously creamy tone. All Gone is even more rocky, with the crunchy riff on the verse recalling my high school days and Elton John’s classic (Saturday Night’s) Alright For Fighting and keeps up the mid-album momentum successfully.

Life I’ve Been Living is another of the country/rock epic ballads that they do best, lyrically an ode to ‘whisky and women’ and burning the candle at both ends. It features the kind of guitar solo (courtesy of Beto Cavazos, like the rest) that demands to be played on a cliff top, if a video were made. Ramblin’ Man is a strong way to finish the album, co-written by Castillo with Omar Perez. It’s a paean to personal freedom and not wanting to get tied down, with the driving music capturing the excitement of a life on the road.

Overall, this is a highly accomplished and enjoyable debut album, all the more remarkable when it is considered they’ve only been together 18 months. They sound like they have been playing for years and the songs all have a lyrical depth and maturity that belies the age of the songwriter. With the radio success of Dance All Night already obtained, I’d imagine this album will garner them a lasting fanbase that should give them a firm foothold in the Red Dirt/Texas Country music scene.

Listen to their music on their mattandtheherdsmen.com or better yet, check out their schedule and listen to them live.

Cody Joe Hodges

Cody Joe Hodges, (Aggie, Class of ’06) is a singer/songwriter and performer hailing from Texas. He started playing music from an early age, then began writing songs while a freshman at TAMU. Following graduation, he enlisted in the US Army, he found himself chosen to sing in a vocal ensemble called Harmony in Motion which performed at large venues all around America. After leaving the Army, he formed a band called The Linemen, who released an album in 2012. In 2014, Cody released his first solo album The Good Stuff, of which the title track won an award and first single Getting Back To Country was a big success.

Cody Joe Hodges

This song, One More Drink, is an upbeat piece of country-rock (or rockin’ country as Cody Joe calls it!) and what you would call a ‘good time song’. After a short intro, Cody tells of struggling to make a good impression on a lady after a few too many. It quickly leads to the instantly memorable chorus, with lyrics we can all relate to: “One more drink, and I’ll leave this bar….one more drink, man, where’s my car?

After a humorous second verse and another chorus, it leads straight into a blistering electric guitar solo that lets us know for sure this is most certainly ‘rockin’ country’. The third verse ties up the song’s little story nicely, with a couple of repeated choruses that you can imagine everyone in a bar singing along to while having a few drinks themselves.

Overall, this is a highly enjoyable and instantly likeable song that seems destined to be popular, especially as songs about the good stuff appear to be all the rage in country music at the moment. Cody Joe Hodges has a great voice, an excellent cast of supporting musicians behind him and superb production, ready for radio. I’d be surprised if this doesn’t become an even bigger hit than his first single.

Heading South by Moonlight Social Song Review

 

Photo in this song review from Moonlight Social has Jeremy and Jennica sitting down on an weathered old boat dock..

Moonlight Social: Jeremy Burchard and Jennica Scott

 

Moonlight Social are a country duo hailing from Austin, Texas, comprising of Jeremy Burchard and Jennica Scott. Having formed in 2011, they were soon performing at industry showcases and won the 2011 Austin Chronicle Sound Wars, as well as the Show Us Your Hits Competition. In 2013, they were named as one of the Best New Bands in Austin, and featured as up and coming artists on the Nashville-produced TV show Welcome To Indie Country. They have since built up a formidable fanbase through touring the Texas Red Dirt scene and elsewhere.

They describe themselves as ‘Sugarland meets The Civil Wars’, their music essentially country with elements of rock that help to add edge. This song, Heading South, is essentially about songwriting itself; the search for creative inspiration and battling self-doubts. Jennica Scott takes the lead vocal, with Jeremy Burchard adding a lovely lower harmony. Jennica possesses a powerful distinctive voice with a large range and together they create a nice vocal blend.

The first verse tells of trying to solve writer’s block and find lyrical inspiration by heading out for a drive. It builds to the memorable chorus hook of “Here I go, looking for meaning down this old dirt road’, which lifts the music as a good chorus should. The second verse describes battling fears and struggling to confront her feelings, so the drive becomes a metaphor for running away from herself. Towards the end, they show their rock leanings with a classy electric guitar solo and a great high note from Jennica.

Overall, this is a superb debut single from this highly promising country-rock duo. With both the vocal and songwriting abilities necessary to crack the big time, aided by flawless production that is perfect for radio, Moonlight Social will be sure to make a big impact with this. I look forward to hearing their debut album in the future.

I’m So Country by Freddy Weller: Brief Bio & Song Review

 

Freddy Weller wearing black turtle neck shirt with brown blazer and a classy fedora.

Freddy Weller

Guitarist, songwriter, and Nashville legend Freddy Weller had a successful behind-the-scenes career in pop/rock before finding solo success as a country singer. Born in Atlanta in 1947, he started playing both banjo and mandolin at age eight and soon moved on to the guitar as well. He later became a regular session guitarist in the area, most notably playing on Billy Joe Royal’s 1965 hit “Down in the Boondocks”; while in Royal’s touring band, Weller met Paul Revere & the Raiders, who offered him their lead guitar slot in 1967.

Freddy Weller spent the next six years as a member of the Raiders, and in 1969 he worked with pop singer Tommy Roe in a songwriting capacity, co-writing the smash hits “Dizzy” and “Jam Up Jelly Tight.” His version of Joe South’s “Games People Play” went to number two on the country charts that year; moreover, the follow-up single, South’s “These Are Not My People,” reached number five.

In 1971, he scored three straight Top Five hits on the country charts with “Another Night of Love,” “Indian Lake,” and “The Promised Land.” Weller then reached the country Top 20 with songs he either wrote or co-wrote: “The Roadmaster,” “She Loves Me (Right Out of My Mind),” and “The Perfect Stranger.” Weller departed the Raiders to focus on his solo career in 1973.

He also penned Bob Luman’s country smash “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers” in 1972, and it was later covered for another hit by Steve Wariner. Weller’s final Top Ten hit was a 1973 cover of Chuck Berry’s “Too Much Monkey Business,” and he reached the Top 20 twice more in 1974 with “I’ve Just Got to Know (How Loving You Would Be)” and “You’re Not Getting Older (You’re Getting Better).” In the ’80s he supplied material to stars like Reba McEntire, John Michael Montgomery, and George Jones, among others.

After releasing Your Memory Walks Through Walls in 2010, Freddy now returns with “I’m So Country”. It is a mellow, laid back track with dryly humorous lyrics that shows Freddy’s songwriting skills and singing are as good as they ever were. It begins with a short spoken word intro that good humouredly mocks the current trend for country songs that contain the word ‘country’ in the title.

The verse then wittily describes how these songs seem to focus on ‘how country they are’ with Freddy concluding “if that’s what you gotta say to get some radio play, I’ll be so country I could shoot myself!“. He delivers these great words in his distinctive, authentic voice aided by a simple but effective musical backing, with nice flourishes of guitar.

After the catchy middle eight, the music modulates and in the last verse Freddy aims a shot at record companies’ obsession with youth: “the labels would sign ’em as soon as they’re born, if they wait they might get too damn old…“. You can imagine him smiling as he sing the last lines, “country’s still the greatest….but how many times can we take that word?“.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable, gently satirical song that pokes light-hearted fun at the current state of the country music scene, and it’s one that his fans will love. To still be writing great tracks like this, after so many years in the industry, shows why Freddy Weller truly is a Nashville legend.
