Prime Cuts: Judged a Man By His Woman, Van Gogh, Every Fire

"XII" is a living testament that neo-traditional country sans of today's rock influx that did not die with the turn of the Millennium. McCoy who had his career height with chuckling novelties (such as "Wink" and "The Shake") and some heart stealing ballads (such as "Party On" and "They're Playing Our Song") is finally back with his full studio album since 2005. "XII" doesn't disappoint: here McCoy sticks to the same template that first brought him to fame. Resisting the perennial pitfall of trying to write his own songs, McCoy has only co-penned two songs here. With the remaining 10 cuts carefully chosen from some of Nashville's A- list writers including Jamie Johnson, Rivers Rutherford, Allen Shamblin, Tom Douglas, Barry Dean among many others. Fans of McCoy's who have loved his variegated tempo material will be pleased to find enough lighthearted party kickers such as "Real Good Feel Good" and "A OK." And those who are suckers for some heart tugging ballads will be awed by "Every Fire" ad "Van Gogh." Production wise, McCoy has enlisted current country scorchers Miranda Lambert and her hubby Blake Shelton together with Brent Rowan (Joe Nichols' producer) to helm the effort. And this trio has done a great job in casting these 12 cuts in sympathetic country backings never over rocking the tempo, yet staying current with lots of steel, piano and fiddles thrown in the mix.

Perhaps the most outstanding song on the set is "Van Gogh." Just like Lorrie Morgan's "Something in Red" or co-producer Miranda Lambert's "The House that Built Me," "Van Gogh" is a career defining song.

It's been five years since country singer McCoy has made an album and it took fellow country singer Blake Shelton and Shelton's singing wife, Miranda Lambert, to get McCoy back in the studio. Shelton's made a side career of advising new performer on how to kick start a career on the TV reality show "The Voice", so he may as well do it for McCoy. And- as McCoy says in the acknowledgement the CD booklet - he let Shelton and another musician/producer - Brent Rowan - choose the songs (from a variety of Nashville's new crop of young songwriters) and the musicians (some of Nashville's best). The album has good variety with a couple of ballads, a few love songs and the now requisite "bar song". This time it's "Mouth". Shelton and Lambert provide backing vocals on the lead-off track "A-OK" and Lambert returns for more vocal support on "Every Fire".

I've always enjoyed McCoy's music since he first came on the scene in the early 1990s, now has an even dozen albums under his belt. Nothing spectacular here; And with the multiple producers, the album plays like many others. But his long time fans will certainly welcome him back.

I hope you found this informative and helpful.

Let me start by saying I HATE mainstream radio cookiecutter country music...it's the worst...radio crap made by non-talented, non-writing, generic people who shouldn't have had a record deal in the first place...who rely on hits submitted by outside songwriters...those people did not build a fanbase organically and were manufactured for radio by the labels who saw a pretty face and cowboy hat, made to be disposable and forgotten when the next fake sensation comes along.

Now, country music was going in a cool, alternative, progressive direction in the late 80s/early 90s with artists like k.d.lang, Carlene Carter, Rodney Crowell, Rosanne Cash, Lyle Lovett, Foster & Lloyd...great stuff, until Garth Brooks came along and ruined everything with all these crappy cookiecutter "hat acts" that came along in his wake...making the need for distinguishing the good from the bad, with alternative country/roots rock/No Depression/country punk...songwriters who combine old-school country with punk rock and harmonies straight out of the Byrds...bands like the Jayhawks, Jason & The Scorchers, Uncle Tupelo/Wilco, Whiskeytown/Ryan Adams, great stuff like that. Another distinction, cookiecutter radio crap was Republican and the good, progressive, alternative stuff was Liberal Democratic.

Well, cookiecutter people became such a target and you can pick em out easily and play Whack-a-Mole...they also had these cheesy linedances which made this music so uncool. I have to admit, when Neal McCoy came into prominence with "Wink", "The Shake", etc, he was an easy target...just an entertainer and not writing any of his songs and played on mainstream radio...I just laughed at him and so did my friend who was buying country music, and I made him realize this distinction.

Aside from a single and a remastered version of an older album, "The Very Best of Neal McCoy," we haven't seen much from him in over 5 years. In fact, we've always called him the "Best Kept Secret in Country Music" - aside from "Wink" and "Shake" whoever's chosen his music for recording clearly hasn't had his best interests in hand. He is one of the best "story" men in Country Music - in fact, download "21-17" sometime and tell me whether it doesn't take you right back to a high school football game! Whatever label he's had has not done him justice except perhaps for his own label, which just lacked the distribution efforts major labels do.

The first time we ever saw him perform was at a benefit concert at Rosemont Arena in Chicago. It was for "The Katman", a fine young DJ who died suddenly from a cerebral aneurysm, leaving a wife and small children behind. There were several performers, Mark Colley, Neal, and another man whose band was left behind and who tried to work with just his guitar and was miserably failing until McCoy and his band stepped in and backed him up. Billy Ray Cyrus was the featured performer, but McCoy had the audience so excited by the time they finished performing that Cyrus was almost an afterthought...and then he, too, called them up and the results were amazing! A few weeks later, I heard that he was performing in Merrillville, IN and even though my family was all gone, I decided to go alone and again, I was awestruck at his talent! Since then, we've seen him all over the country and even paid our own way to a "free" concert that US99 in Chicago had arranged for winners of a contest - in Mexico! My daughter and I arrived early at Iberostar Paraiso Beach Resort and a day later, so did McCoy and his band.
