Overview

With the assistance of a bevy of top-drawer Nashville producers and triple-scale session musicians, the precocious, pubescent Billy Gilman avoids the sophomore slump by breathing life into a dozen songs that veer from lighthearted moments to thoughtful, mostly optimistic looks at people and issues out there in the real world. At the same time, the bright, polished sound of the orchestral arrangements supporting Gilman edges him into the pop realm, where he finds the best fit for his smooth, emotive voice. Highlights include the super-catchy single "She's My Girl"; the inspirational power ballad "Elisabeth," the story of a terminally ill girl who inspires others by living each day to the max; "God's Alive and Well," a gently rocking testimonial celebrating the "little miracles around us every day of our lives"; and, right on time for Mother's Day, "The Woman in My Life," which is about you-know-who. The fair-haired boy wraps it up by poking some good-natured fun at his own wholesome image in the jaunty, swinging "Shame, Shame, Shame," and the levity he engages in is as endearing as the sincerity he brings to these well-crafted ballads.
