Cory Branan – The No-Hit Wonder

Bloodshot, 2014

A direct hit of rollicking, old school country rock, with more superstar cameos than there’s space to mention. Branan’s songs appear more upbeat these days, but the gentle, romantic moments are still present, if coming from the angle of a punk-fueled, alt-country cult hero. Soulful, twang-filled and rugged, yet so easily embraced, everything Branan’s done has been great, but this is record of the year material.
