Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Brothers Johnny (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Donnie (.38 Special) Van Zant have made a home for themselves at the intersection of Southern rock and contemporary country, all but blurring the boundary. Between the roaring road song that opens the album ("Train") and the weary road song that closes it ("Headed South"), Van Zant balance down-home party rockers such as "Goes Down Easy" and "It's Only Money" with the more serious balladry of "We Can't Do It Alone" (a spiritual sequel of sorts to "Get Right With the Man"), "That Scares Me," and "The Hardest Thing." Though the title song is little more than a banjo-laced string of country clichés and "These Colors Don't Run" is a patriotic bumper sticker, this solid sophomore effort should win the brotherly duo more country fans. --Don McLeese

Product Description

2007 album by brothers Johnny (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Donnie (.38 Special) Van Zant, a very slight detour from their popular full-time Southern Rock bands. Their southern fried music has always appealed to fans of Country so this is the next logical step for the duo. And they are more than likely going to win over a whole new set of fans this time around!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Merger November 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As one reviewer put it here, Van Zant didn't reinvent themselves, country music came to them. This is an amazing story of what one genre of music is willing to except and promote, versus the stale, often generic rock and pop world that would have put a band like Van Zant out to pasture years ago. In fact, AOR radio has done that to this duo, who are seperately part of southern rock royalty. And no wonder. They can sing, play and write. Admittedly there's some extra pedal steel, where in southern rock, it might only be present in B-side or a deep album cuts. Even more interesting is that Donnie Van Zant is allowed to sing! In .38 Special, Donnie was the John Oates of the band, getting the non-single album cuts. Donnie's voice fits quite well with brother Johnny who has the best laugh in recorded music history. One listen to "Goes Down Easy" and you'll get my point. "That Scares Me" is more traditional country with it's laments of parenthood without perspective. These boys are totally okay being every cliche of southern life. Football, Jesus, an occasional adult beverage, bass boats, patriotism, NASCAR and any other steroetype you can conjur up. The verdict is there's nothing inherently wrong with any of this. In fact, if you want to be from the south, you need to act like southerners. And Van Zant is firmly confident in their southernhood. What you'll also get on "My Kind of Country" is fine production value, twin lead guitars, killer drums and instrumental accents like banjos, steel guitar and layered acoustic guitars. You won't find a more polished piece of honky tonk than this project.

One final element that makes this project commendable is repentance. These boys now seem okay in their own skin, they understand where they've been and where their headed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Van Zant's Kind of Country Still Rocks October 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: That Scares Me, Goes Down Easy, Friend

Country music has come to Van Zant. With radio's recent proclivity towards raise-the-roof Southern rock thanks to Big and Rich, Montgomery Gentry, and Brooks and Dunn, country music has opened its doors to the likes of rock veterans Johnny (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Donnie (.38 Special)Van Zant. Their debut for Columbia Nashville Records "Get Right with the Man" was 2005's success story garnering them two top 20 hits. So, it's no surprise that "My Kind of Country" adopts the same musical template as its predecessor with the abundance of wild rebellious roar as well as a few sensitive ballads thrown in. Produced by Justin Niebank (whose CV includes working with Vince Gill & Marty Stuart) and Mark Wright (Gretchen Wilson), "My Kind of Country" also boasts the best of Nashville's most sort after scribes including Rivers Rutherford, David Lee Murphy, Bob DiPero, and Jeffrey Steele, just to name drop a few.

Lead single "That Scares Me" is easily this album's best song. A change of pace from their rough and rowdy ways, "That Scares Me" is a mature ballad of a man coming of age confessing his fears of fatherhood especially when his son were to ask him about his "history, the things I don't want him to know/the sex, the drugs and the rock and roll." Despite their reputation as rockers, when these boys croon a ballad they are surprisingly splendid as evidenced by "Friend," a beautiful tribute to the protagonist's lady friend for her companionship and love over the years. Though more upbeat, "It's All About You" speaks of a much needed romantic R & R with a melodious Brooks and Dunn affinity that is just winsome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD for country and non-country music fans November 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
"My Kind of Country" is the fourth VanZant CD and well worth the wait. VanZant "Brother to Brother" and VanZant II haven't been mentioned in prior reviews and deserve their kudos. All have songs that will have you singing long after the CD is over. "Get Right with the Man" certainly deserves the spotlight it has drawn, but "My Kind of Country" is a CD that both country and non-country music lovers will be pleased to add to their collections. Both Johnny and Donnie have distinct, strong voices that make them the legends they are today. You can feel the pleasure they get from singing and sharing their talent with their listeners. Can't wait to hear the next CD they do together.

5.0 out of 5 stars VanZant-My Kind of Country November 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It's not Skynyrd,It's not 38 Special.
It's 2 talented voices that make a great duo.
It's more country than rock.
It's stories about life.
Its' too bad that one voice is missing.
It's Great

This is the best of Van Zants cd's. Every track brings out some kind of emotion. Whether it be warm and fuzzy feelings of life, love for a special someone or good ole american pride. I recommend it to anyone who wants to listen to some good southern country rock!

5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Rock Sings Again! November 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is a must for all Skynyrd fans! The song writing of Donnie and Johnny brings back the great patriotism of the past. I've been waiting for the new Kid and Shooter only to find this hidden treasure. It blows the others away. I never review cd's, however, it will go down as a rock classic for those who purchase it. You won't be sorry if you are a true southern rock fan!
