Ian’s Country Radio Show
"Townes van Zandt comes to mind....Americana at its grittiest...Barry leaves an impression far deeper than any studio wizardry..." 5 Stars Country Music Magazine http://www.countrymusicmag.com/
“..This double album draws on the Lone Star State's’ “red dirt Americana” sound, focusing on sparse, acoustic music...They range from the slow smoldering opener, “Trouble Down In Tennessee” , the catchy “Chainsmoker”, and the bluegrassy “Keep The Devil Away”, to softer numbers like “Home”, and “Evidence". "Seemed Like a Good Idea At The Time” stands out for me, helped by the duet vocals from Heather Austin. “Southern Oak”, another of the ballads, was another highlight..."

"...Strangely addictive, and perfect for a ‘feet up’ late night listen in the La-Z-Boy. Preferably, with a large glass of Bourbon. **** "
