This CD is a "10". Having managed to collect all of Randy's CDs, found them to all be top notch and "I'm Torn" is right up there at the top, also. The collection of songs is great and he does justice on all. If you do not own a Randy Kohrs CD 'yet', buy one soon; you have no idea what you have missed.Was this review helpful?

Playing Time – 33:45 -- Resophonic guitarist Randy Kohrs is a well-known Nashville session musician who has also released three previous solo album projects. His fourth, “I’m Torn,” is an all-bluegrass album that will appeal to fans of all ages. Kohrs wrote or co-wrote all but two of the songs, produced, engineered, and mixed all the music on this disc. With the help of 15 noteworthy musicians, the result is a contemporary gift full of energy and velocity. Carl Jackson and Dolly Parton appear with Kohrs at track three, “It Looked Good On Paper” (written by Jackson with Pam Tillis). Randy has previously toured the world with Dolly as part of her band, The Blueniques. Randy’s participation as a session musician on over 300 albums has emphasized his expert instrumental virtuosity. This project is a showcase of his singularly impressive talents as a songwriter and singer. He sings with a no-holds barred style. He’s truly a well-rounded individual who is a deserving member of the bluegrass elite. The talented Kohrs has found his stylistic footing as a solo contemporary bluegrass artist, and his songs are distinguished by consummate pyrotechnics and drive. Whether your favorite is a hustling song like “Mountain Stone,” or a reflective, sad tale of growing old, “Fifty Good Years,” Kohrs covers many musical moods and the exercise yields bountiful rewards.
