    This is a "MUST HAVE" for any country fan!

    john Arthur's "Lone Starry Night" is the first CD I've ever purchased where I can't choose a favorite song! I think I have, and then another is running through my head. I'm one of his biggest fans now! This is a "must have", and I hope you have the ability to pick a favorite on this CD.

    Nashville Star Runner-Up Proves Strong Singer-Songwriter

    john Arthur Martinez's Dualtone debut proves that his second-place showing on NASHVILLE STAR in 2003 was no fluke. "Lone Starry Night" takes the listener on a tour through the world of Texas music interpreted through john Arthur's country-Tejano lens. It's a powerful, heartfelt, and outstanding album. Most of these tracks have appeared on his self-made independent releases, but here they shine even more with the full treatment from some of Nashville and Texas's best backing him up. Many of the tunes are given a bilingual flavor with borderland-spiced arrangements and a verse or two in Spanish, including a striking and definitive take on the classic "Amarillo by Morning" and Martinez's lush paean to San Antonio, "River of Love / El Rio de Amor." jAM proves adept at everything from the serious and heartfelt tear-jerker "If I Didn't Care" (featuring beautiful harmony vocals by fellow Nashville Star finalist Miranda Lambert) to the silly "Armadillo Song," joyously tackles Western Swing with "A Girl Named Texas," has a classic country story song with fiddle-as-metaphor-for-life "The Man Who Holds The Bow," and even ventures close to Neville Brothers territory with the unexpectedly soulful "Pour A Little Love On It." This should clearly be a contender for Texas Music Album of the Year, and the voters and viewers of the first Nashville Star should be proud to have uncovered this gem of a singer-songwriter.

    Lone Starry Night Shines!

    jAm has written and sung the definitive Texas album. He didn't write Amaillo By Morning, but he might as well have. His treatment of that song is just as good in it's way as anything George Strait could have done. He did write or co-write all the others. If I Didn't Care is destined to be a theme song for step parents everywhere. It pulls my heart strings every time I hear it which is often. The Armadillo Song is fun and rollicking and you won't be able to keep from trying to sing it with him. You might do it but you'd better be fast. Lone Starry Night, the song, is worth the price of the cd. It's a haunting, beautiful tour through west Texas. Close your eyes and go with it. Pour A Little Love On It has to be my personal favorite. It's not what I'm used to hearing from jAm. It's so many types of music rolled into one and I could listen to it all night long. This cd doesn't have a bad song on it. They are all potential hits. Try it. You won't be sorry.
