Bryan White was the poster child of country music of the 90s. His smashing boyish good looks, his wafting tenor, and his streamlined mainstream pop country were the prerequisites for stardom during the post-Garth Brooks climate of the nineties. Certainly White was devoured by radio, resulting in a stream of hits, 4 of which even reached the Billboard chart's penthouse. They include "Rebecca Lynn," "Sittin' on Go," "Someone Else's Star," and "So Much for Pretending." Unfortunately, loyalty has never been the earmark of country radio. Prior to the turn of the new millennium, hits were drying up and after 1999's "How Lucky I Am," Lady Luck was no longer on White's side. 10 years of exile in the land without the support of a major label, White is back with this independently released "Dustbowl Dreams." Stripping away the gloss that often comes with a major label product, "Dustbowl Dreams" finds White adopting a more hands-on approach. With him and band mate Derek George not only helming the CD themselves, but White has a hand in co-penning all the tracks, save for three.
While in the 90s, White has been spoon fed with a few padded froth (such as "Eugene the Genius"), this time round he searches his soul for some heart rendering compositions. Best of which is the title cut "Dustbowl Dreams." An eloquent autobiographical entry from the viewpoint of the "son of the son of an auctioneer" detailing their life, struggles and perseverance, this is a slice of Americana that ought to speak to anyone who has had struggles in life. Such personal investments also show with "Erika's Song," a song White wrote about his wife Erika.Read more ›
By the way, I think his last album "How Lucky I Am" was HIGHLY underrated.
