My Father's Son

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Brian Mansfield
A concept album about families, My Father's Son is the Skaggs album that owes the least to bluegrass. Skaggs is concerned with the legacies fathers leave their sons, both the wisdom "Father Knows Best" and the limitations "My Father's Son". He also sees materialism for the distracting, destructive force it is. His duet with Waylon Jennings on "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line" fits neatly, though perhaps not the way the writer intended. And because Skaggs' background is bluegrass rather than honky-tonk, every father image is inextricably bound to God.
