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.

Turns out Radney aint so frickin' rad. Heard a lot of hype over the CD and it turned out to be just that, hype he was better live or maybe I was drunk.

Great Live CD, kind of mellow though. Too bad he bowed down to the frat crowd and put Pat Green on it.

I saw Radney for the first time in 94' at a club in San Angelo,TX. His songs were precise and his voice had a great edge.Later in the night,he jumped down off the stage and danced with one of the best looking girls in the place during one of the guitar solos. I've been hooked ever since. His songwriting amazes me. I can promise you that you'll never hear some joker like Tim Mcgraw make a stripped down record and sound this good. Luckily,this record isn't Nashville, it's just damn good.

Every song on this CD is superb. When one song comes on you will think it is your favorite on the CD until the next song begins. This is a must buy CD.......
