~Cryin' For Me (Wayman's Song) - the standout on a solid album~
on October 6, 2009
Toby's latest album is great from top to bottom, but "Cryin' For Me" (Wayman's Song) is definitely the standout track for me. It is such a powerful ballad...one of Toby's best, and quite different from anything out there right now. The whole song has a nice and acoustic jazz feel, and it features a soothing saxophone -- something you don't often hear on country radio. The lyrics are powerful, written from the heart, and show the softer, more sensitive side of Toby. I'm not sure if it'll be a single, but I sure hope so. Either way, this is a "must hear" song!
The title track to "American Ride" is a very upbeat and catchy song, with clever lyrics featuring golden light humor. This combination is what helped give Toby yet another #1 song -- and it's currently been the #1 song for 2 weeks in a row. "Every Dog Has Its Day" sounds like classic Toby material, and it should be a big hit with his core fanbase. "Ballad of Balad" is another unique song, which you really need to hear to understand. Based on the solid material featured on this album, I think Toby will continue to ride high on the country charts for years to come.
