Album of the Month – Andrew Combs: Worried Man

November 10, 2012 § Leave a comment

Oh my. This is a wonderful country album. I started listening to Andrew Combs on wednesday, bought his album Worried Man later that night and have listened to it around 12-13 hours during thursday and friday. This might not be anything that unique, because during the past ten years, I’ve listened to country songs and heartwrecking balladry as much as my heart can safely consume. But still.. Damn.. This is just so brilliantly crafted and delivered that I can listen to this all day long. Andrew Combs is writing some great country songs in the footsteps of legends like Clark, Prine, Van Zandt and the man sure can sing. If you need some recent comparisons maybe Robert Ellis and debut-era Justin Rutledge comes to mind. Well at least yours truly has been equally excited about them. Anyway, Worried Man is magnificent and it’s certainly good to know that there’s still some fantastic real country music coming from Nashville. A few examples below. Stream/buy the whole album at bandcamp.

Note to self: Check out Carl Anderson. Apparently that marvellous song Heavy is originally his.
