It’s always great to be introduced to new music from up-and-comers and this is especially the case with the new self-titled CD by James Robert Webb. Produced by Buddy Cannon (Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Willie Nelson), the album gives us a doctor’s take and view (yes, he’s really a doctor – a radiologist) on modern traditional country music as well as current events (pre-coronavirus).
Smooth. Well-written. Well-played. Well-recorded. To put it simply: It’s great, new country that sounds like great, old country. Period.
Webb does an amazing job of walking the tightrope between traditional and contemporary country music. This is likely due to the fact that he was raised on a small farm outside of Tulsa, listening to a wide variety of Oklahomans including Bob Wills, Garth Brooks, and Leon Russell. His voice is unique, indefinable, and organic with a dash of neo-traditionalist style fused with modern production – just for a little extra kick.
If you’re a true country fan, you’re going to want to follow Mr. Webb and you can do exactly that at his website, JamesRobertWebb.com.
We certainly are.
