Overview

Solid Ground is a fitting title for this album, as John Anderson was surely in his stride when he recorded this follow-up to his comeback, Seminole Wind. Anderson's strongest point is that he comes across as an honest-to-God good ol' boy -- which many posers of contemporary country only claim to be -- and nowhere is this more evident than on the first track, "Money in the Bank." He turns the thankful tune into gold with his trademark twang, then turns right around and nails an ode to regret for what his success has cost him on "I Wish I Could Have Been There.." Though there aren't any tracks as immediately accessible as "Straight Tequila Night," "Let Go of the Stone," "Look Away," or the title track, the cuts on this album are more assured, finding Anderson maturing as both a vocalist and a producer. Though he co-wrote only four of the ten tracks, he owns all of them, making this a classic country album of the early '90s.
