“There must be something in the water: Kevin Deal is yet another serious Texas-based singer/songwriter. He’s in the Steve Earle/Joe Ely mold, both in terms of style and gambler’s instinct.”
– Billboard Magazine
Time was – and not so long ago-that country was strictly working man’s music. Working women, too, of course-and we’re talking hard work here. Knuckle-busting, foot flattening, slow-to-get-up, work that has ya leaving (and returning) home in the dark in a dinged-up pickup truck that’s actually used to haul things. And then, figuring out which overdue bill gets paid next.
Yep, time was it was working man’s music – in Kevin Deal’s case, it still is.
