Singer/songwriter/producer Foster has always been revered in the music community as a lyricist and a dry West Texas poet. One look at the folks who have covered his songs--everyone from Hootie and the Blowfish and the Pistoleros to the Dixie Chicks and Guy Clark--and you realize this guy is not easily categorized. As one half of the duo Foster and Lloyd, he recorded three groundbreaking albums for RCA, becoming one of the first acts to be played simultaneously on Country and College radio. The duo broke through in the late 80’s, a rare time in Nashville’s history when Country radio welcomed other innovative acts like Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam. Foster and Lloyd’s “Crazy Over You,” went straight to number one, making them the first duo in history to top the charts with their debut single. Meanwhile, their albums were appearing in the Top Ten on the College chart, sharing common musical ground and press accolades with Rank and File, Lone Justice and the Blasters. When the duo split up, Foster recorded two solo albums that yielded a handful of hits and a reputation as one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. His songs, like “Nobody Wins” and “A Fine Line” had a lyrical edge and pop sensibilities that often challenged mainstream Country conventions. Throughout his solo career, folks like Emmylou Harris, Hootie and the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentey have jumped at the chance to work with him and lend vocal support to his projects--a further testament to Foster’s influence. Foster has served as host for the critically acclaimed CMT Crossroads, and has produced projects by Jack Ingram, The Randy Rogers Band, Brandon Rhyder and others. His upcoming release, Revival, will be released September 1, 2009.

Awesome CD...Radney at his best. Downloaded it from iTunes yesterday, and haven't stopped listening to it since.

Can't wait for Revival to come out. Glad he's using the road band.

My first Radney album and I really like it. Took me a little while to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Very good.

Radney produced (dare I say invented) Randy Rogers. Soon the world will know his name. Mu-ha-ha!

This World We Live In WOW how does he do it? Singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer/TV host and the list goes on. I wish I could say something great about this CD but it looks like I'm behind. Clay Walker could learn something from this CD.

This CD is another yet another great chapter in Radney Foster's catalog. Yes, it is different, mellower, and instrospective. A wonderful effort including a one of his best songs yet - "Half Of My Mistakes" ----

WOW! What's better than music stripped down to the basics? Good ol' acoustic guitar and one of the most talented songwriters EVER! Indeed, this album does rock. If you only had the means to obtain one Radney album...you've found it.

Although I somewhat disagree with Rob's review...yes, they are all great songs, but in this type of situation, I dont mind the "recycling" of previous songs, since most of those songs had not been presented in a "full-band" manner. Although, I will say I personally enjoyed the acoustic version of most of these songs better, this album is still very good and indeed worth picking up.
