Overview

Goose Creek Symphony's frontman Charles Gearhart continues his admirable imitation of the Band's warm country-rock on their second album, Words of Earnest. The opening track, "Gearhart and God," finds the singer good-naturedly pleading with the man upstairs for help writing a song, promising to split the royalties 50/50. The whole album is full of slightly tongue-in-cheek stories about fishin' holes and the good life livin' in the country, each warmly backed by Fred Wise's loose fiddle or the occasional Dixieland/Salvation Army brass band. Similar to a lot of the Grateful Dead's more countrified stuff, these down-home rockers make for great summertime porch music.
