They sell him way short. He has a marvelous deep, throaty voice, an excellent songwriting gift, and an all-round ability as a performer, with a down-home funky style that makes his music interesting, heart-warming, and very enjoyable.
This CD has the feel of a live club recording, rather than a studio session, with an "up-close" sound. The band is terrific, and deserves mention: Terry Shelton, guitar / Barton Stevens, keyboards / Greg Fletcher, drums / Corky Holbrook, bass, with additional guitars by Keith Hinton and Sonny Garish (steel).
Billy Ray wrote "Someday, Somewhere, Someday", and co-wrote five others (tracks # 3, 4, 8, 9, and 10). I like the humor and musicianship in "Wher'm I Gonna Live ?" which he wrote with Cindy Cyrus, and he also wrote the patriotic hymn that is another favorite of mine with her, "Some Gave All".
His cover of Lee Hazelwood's "These Boots are Made for Walkin'" that was a hit for Nancy Sinatra in 1966 is fabulous, and one of the numbers on the CD that make great dance music.
Good songs, wonderful vocals, and a tight, skilled band all come together to make this a solid country CD, well deserving of praise. This album stayed a record 17 weeks in the # 1 spot on both Country and Pop charts, and total playing time is 36'01.
