This is the best CD I have heard in a while. All of the songs are strong. He has a great voice. I have listened to it over and over and will continue to do so. I don't think you'll be sorry if you get this CD.

Man, this guy is good. He sings good, and has alot of emotion behind his songs. He's up there with Garth Brooks in my book and I hope he comes out with more stuff.

Pinson is well-known in Nashville for his songwriting prowess, having penned tunes for LeAnn Rimes, Blake Shelton, Tracy Lawrence and others. More impressively, his turn in the spotlight shows him to be a singer with some non-Nashville grit in his voice, lending many of his 11 co-written songs a sad, gravelly underpinning that brings to mind Steve Earle and the early works of Tom Waits. His lyrics are of the heartland, like those of John Mellancamp, but they're not the sort of wholesome, airbrushed words associates with many of today's mainstream Nashville acts. Pinson's windswept Texas panhandle upbringing hasn't been manicured away. ¶ The homespun reminiscence "Started a Band" is filled with the details of someone who started his journey to fame in the basement of his parent's house. Likewise, "Ford Fairlane" sings of the intimate love and nostalgia for a family friend; it's too bad that Brian Wilson and Gary Usher aren't looking back to their automotive-fueled teen years with similar pride. The small-town boredom of "Nothin' Happens in This Town" echoes Earle's "Guitar Town" and Bogdanovich's "The Last Picture Show," but the album's lead single "Don't Ask Me How I Know" sports an unusually strong message of self-responsibility. Overall, one of the year's most welcome surprises from Nashville! 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
